Scarborough is the capital of Tobago.
The climate is tropical, with mostly warm/hot and humid conditions and temperatures around 30 °C during the day and around or slightly above 20 °C. There are two seasons annually: the dry season for the first six months of the year, and the wet season in the second half of the year. Winds are predominantly from the northeast and are dominated by the northeast trade winds. Unlike most of the other Caribbean islands, Scarborough's southern location means they are generally not within the hurricane zone, and rarely suffer from hurricane damage.
