What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

The weather literally never changes here. It's about 82 degrees F and pretty humid every day throughout the year. There are no seasons and no variations in the weather. Lows are in the high 70s and highs are in the mid-80s. It is the rainiest inhabited place in the world, so be prepared for 200 to 400 inches of rain a year. - Feb 7, 2013
Mixed. Kolonia gets about 200 inches of rain per year; the mountainous interior of the island gets up to 400 inches/year. You learn to not let the rain dictate your outdoor plans. It is sunnier here than I was told previously, though November 2007 was non-stop downpours! - Apr 1, 2008
