Climate Brazil

Climate South America

Brazil extends from 8 degrees north to about 33 degrees south and is therefore located in different climatic zones. While in the southern part of the country subtropical climate prevails, a large part of the north and especially in the Amazon region is dominated by tropical climate. In parts of the northeast one finds regions with steppe climate and frequent periods of drought. Apart from southern Brazil, temperatures fluctuate only slightly throughout the year and, depending on the region, are usually between 27 and 33 degrees Celsius. Rainfall can be particularly high in the Amazon region. In Manaus almost 2300 mm fall per year. Only from July to September, when the dry season prevails, can a decrease in precipitation be observed. Nevertheless, the values lie between 58 and 88 mm. Further south in the subtropical regions, there is a slight annual temperature variation with daily maximum temperatures of around 20 degrees in June and 30 degrees in January and February in Porto Alegre. The relative humidity, however, is at least 70 percent throughout the year and precipitation is usually more than 100 mm per month.

If you want to spend your holidays in the northern coastal regions of Brazil, it would be best to spend the months July to December, as this is when the least rain falls. For the Amazon region, the period June to October is recommended. The best time to travel to the south of Brazil is from May to September. Then it is a bit cooler, but less sunshine is to be expected.
