Climate in Guinea-Bissau

Climatic conditions in Guinea-Bissau

The climate is tropical wet, especially along the coast, with heavy rains from June to November and a dry season from December to May. During the rainy season, the oceanic winds bring important rains to the whole country and floods are frequent. The high rate of humidity linked with the heat make the atmosphere difficult to tolerate. During the dry season, days are hot and sunny but nights are cool. The atmosphere is dried by the harmattan, a hot and dry wind coming from Sahara.
