Default Weather in mid-August - Western Caribbean

We are looking at going on the Carnival Miracle Aug. 13 to the Western Caribbean (Costa Maya, Belize, Cayman, Cozumel). Does anyone know what the weather is normally like in these areas during these times? I know it is hurricane season, so are we taking a big chance with going during this time? Any input is greatly appreciated!!

I cruised the last week of August last year and it was hot and sunny. While we had good weather in port, all snorkeling was cancelled as the water was rough due to Hurricane Katrina. Also, we couldn't cruise back to Tampa. We ended up porting in Ft. Lauderdale. Carnival bussed everyone back to Tampa. I just changed my flight and flew back home from Ft. Lauderdale. We had a great trip and I wouldn't hestitate to book again during hurricane season.

hot and muggy on the islands
This year is predicted to be another active hurricane season, and after what happened last year i would be very leary of booking during hurricane season.
