Ghana doesn't experience a vast array of seasons and has a tropical climate typified by wet summers and dry winters. Being close to the equator, Ghana enjoys minimal temperature variations but distinct wet and dry seasons. The rainy season arrives in May in the northern regions of Ghana and begins in April until July in the south. Wet weather continues until October or November.
Temperatures and humidity are generally high all year round, particularly in the coastal regions. The coolest time of year is from June to September, but even then, temperatures tend to hover around 83°F (28°C).
The hottest months are between late November and mid-March, when the dry and dusty harmattan winds blow in from the Sahara in the northeast. The harmattan lowers humidity drastically and creates hot days and cool nights. Daytime temperatures reach 95°F (35°C) and higher.
