Weather and Climate
Warm all year around
Being near to the equator, the islands are warm all year round. Officially summer and winter peak in December and June respectively. Short rains can occur in November but are characterised by short showers which do not last long.
The long rains normally occur in April and May although this is often referred to as the ‘Green Season’ and it typically does not rain every day during that time. The heat of summer is seasonally often cooled by windy conditions, resulting in sea breezes, particularly on the North and East coasts.
