Guinea WeatherGuy Weather
It has a tropic and moist weather with a rain and a drought. And Guinea is one of the wetest West African states. Southwestern winds in the months of June to November and the arid period with northeastern harmony from December to May. During the rain period a lightweight raincover or parasol is required.
Guinea is situated in West Africa and borders Guinea-Bissau in the NW, Senegal and Mali in the NW, Côte d'Ivoire in the EE, Liberia in the SOW and Sierra Leone in the SW. Guinea's many tributaries provide most of West Africa with fresh ore. Niger River runs northwards from the uplands to Mali before flowing southwards through Niger and Nigeria.
On the coastline there are mangroves marshes, while in the interior there are the Fouta Djalon hill, which forms several different mountain chains and plateaus all over West Guinea. To the north-east, the savanna plateau of the Sahel extends as far as Mali. Southwards are the peaks known as Guinea Highlands.
Temperatures, rainfall, when to go, what to grab
is more common on the coastline, where even 4,000 millimeters of precipitation occur in a year, while it is less common in the northern and northeast, where it is just over 1,000 mm (40 in) per year.
Though the rainfall on the coastline is higher, the south-easterly rain period is longer, with the first downpours already occurring in the second half of February and the last in November, while in Conakry on the coastline the rainfall occurs from May to November and in Kankan in the eastern part from May to October.
which is situated in the far northern plains, especially from March to May, before the onset of the month, when the maximum temperature is normally 38/40°C (100/104°F). These are the mean temperature of Koundara. As already noted, the northern part of the island is the least rain-laden and the wet seasons are less frequent.
This is the mean rainfall in Koundara. In the far northern hemisphere the eclipse seems regular during the long arid period, but it can also be seen quite frequently from July to September. The heat in early springs is less intense on the coastline, which is tempered by the sea breezes, but also in the south-central interior, both because of the higher location and because the onset of the early monsun.
In N'Zerekoré, in the southeast, at 500 meters above sealevel, the daily mean temp in February and March does not rise above 32 C and in Conakry on the shore in April does not rise above 32 C. These are the mean temperaments of N'Zerekoré.
As already noted, the southeast is the area where the wet seasons are longer. This is the mean rainfall in N'Zerekoré. Sunshine is rarer in the southern part than in the northern part, even in the arid time. Winter in Guinea, from December to February, is warm, arid and sunshiny, with the predominance of the northeast winds, known as harmattan, which can transport dusts and sandy particulates from the outback.
February sees the first downpours in the southern hemisphere, while the middle and northern hemispheres become even hotter. Conakry, the capitol on the coastline, has little fluctuation in temperature all year round: in winters daytime temperature is 30/32°C, while in the wet seasons it falls to 27/29°C, although the higher air moisture makes the temperature humid (but at least on the coastline the temperature is softened by the breeze).
These are the mean temperature. Conakry is the most rainy town in Guinea: most of the 4 meters of rainy weather that falls in one year falls from June to mid-October, especially in July and August, when it is raining almost daily and the skies are almost always cloudy.
This is the mean rainfall. In Conakry the weather often from November to April, while in the wet seasons, and especially from July to September, the skies are often overcast. Weather is good, although it can get warm during the daytime, especially in the interior and at lower elevations, while it can get chilly at nights, especially in the mountain.
Prior to the advent of the MONSUN, from March to May, it gets very warm in the interior, especially in the northern part of the country, while the temperatures on the coastline are more constant. Quite the opposite, in the southern part the rain starts to drop. The best time for a seaside vacation is the drying time from December to April.
Winters: in Conakry and on the coastline, lightweight attire for the days, a lightweight sweat shirt for the evenings, shawl for the wind-blown sandy and mud. It may be useful to take a sweater and coat for the evenings upcountry. A lightweight garment made of nature fibers, an Umbrella, a lightweight sweat shirt and a lightweight raincover for the long and heavydrain.
Indoors and in the mountains you can wear a heavy sweater for all weathers.
