Weather in Ghana


Ghana has a tropical equatorial climate, with two main seasons: wet and dry. The southern coastal region has two rainy seasons; one from April to July and the other from September to November. In the north, the rainy season generally lasts from April to September. Rains are heavier and last longer in the country’s central regions. Temperatures are generally high all year round, and humidity is also high, particularly in the coastal regions. The hottest months are between December and March, when the dry and dusty harmattan winds blow in from the Sahara in the north east. The harmattan lowers the humidity and creates hot days and cool nights.
