Climate[eedit | eedit soorce]

Puerto Baquerizo Moreno haes an ateepical arid climate (Köppen climate classification BWh).

Despite bein less than ane full latitudinal degree awa frae the Equator, temperaturs in the toun an the surroondin aurie on the island niver reach the unbearable hichts expectit for such an equatorial location. Temperaturs remain astonishingly similar year-roond, fluctuatin anerlie several degrees frae Januar means tae Julie means.

Housomeivver, twa saisons predominate: the ceuler, dry saison that typically lasts frae Juin tae November an brings licht drizzle, oceanic coastal fog, mild tae wairm temperaturs, an mainly owercast skies. Aw o these characteristics are evident due tae the presence o the cauld Humboldt Current that flows north frae Peru an Chile. Awtho this is considered the dry saison for the actual total rain amoont at this time is exceptionally licht, it tends tae precipitate vera slowly in the form o extremely licht drizzle an is aften accompaniet wi grey, owercast skies.

The wet saison lasts roughly frae Dizember tae May, an brings an abundance o bricht sunshine alang wi sporadically brief, yet aften intense, tropical thunnerstorms. Annual average precipitation amoonts tae approximately 288.8 mm (11.37 in), 86% o which faws in the five-month wet saison period spannin Dizember till Mey. Precipitation faws an average o 107 days a year (precipitation ≥ 0.004" / 0.1 mm).
