Ghana doesn't experience a vast array of seasons, and has a tropical climate typified by wet summers and dry winters. The southern coastal region experiences 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 generally heavier and more prolonged in the country’s central regions.
Temperatures and humidity are generally high all year round, particularly in the coastal regions. The coldest months tend to be between June and September when minimum temperatures can reach 67°F (19 °C).
The hottest months are between December and March when the dry and dusty harmattan winds blow in from the Sahara in the northeast. The harmattan lowers the humidity and creates hot days and cool nights, with daily temperatures reaching 95°F (35 °C) and higher. The rest of the country, particularly further south, feels the harmattan winds in January.
