Climate

These islands experience a tropical equatorial climate with wet and dry seasons. The wet season is from December to April. During the rest of the year, the south-east trade winds bring slightly lower temperatures and humidity with much less rain.

The mean annual rainfall is about 2,000 millimetres. Most of this rain falls between November and May. February and March are usually the wettest months.

Because of the oceanic influence, the relative humidity does not vary seasonally as much as rainfall. The average daily maximum temperature reaches a high of 28° Celsius in April and the average daily minimum temperature falls to 22° Celsius in August.
