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

It's hot and humid or warm and humid almost every day. You don't need a jacket. Maybe you'd want one long-sleeve shirt because of air conditioning, but it's summertime all year round here. If it's cloudy and rainy, it can be pleasantly mild, but never really cool. - Aug 4, 2017
Extremely hot and very very humid all year long (about 100 degrees every day, maybe cooling to 95 at night), December to January it is slightly less humid. Make no mistake, every single day is hot and sweaty. - Apr 6, 2017
It is hot most of the year and slightly cooler in summer months and during the Harmattan. - Aug 11, 2016
Hot and hotter. We get a breeze fairly often but it's a hot and sticky breeze. - May 4, 2014
Nov thru April is very hot (95-100F) and mostly dry, sometimes with a dusty Harmattan wind (in January and February). May and June are hot (90-95F), humid, and rainy. July thru October is tolerable (85-90F) with occasional rain. If you think that you will miss winter/spring/autumn, this is not the place for you. - Apr 24, 2012

Hot! Two rainy seasons a year provide some relief. Best and coolest months are August and September. Beginning on late October the weather gets hotter and by January we are all baking. Rainy season begins end of February or mid-March and finishes by beginning of May or so. Smaller rainy season hits mid-July for about 2 weeks. - Feb 24, 2010
Hot quite a lot - but cooler in dry season when it remains hazy/cloudy. - Feb 5, 2010
