Monrovia



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

Hot and extremely wet (May-Oct), or extremely hot (Nov-Apr). - Nov 17, 2017
Monrovia is the wettest capital city in the world - there are heavy rains between April and December with a few breaks. It is hot and humid pretty much year-round, though the rains provide some respite. - Jun 23, 2016
The rainy season is from May to October --- it rains just about every day, often with hours-long downpours. The beginning and the end of rainy season can have some fairly violent night-time thunderstorms. Dry season can get fairly hot, and the humidity is always high. After a while, 65% humidity will feel like a dry day. Daytime temperatures are usually between 75 and 95 degrees - a little cooler in the rainy season, a little warmer in the dry season. The sun is very strong. - Aug 20, 2015
Hot and humid or hot and rainy much of the time. Mornings and evenings can be pleasant with breezes and cloud cover. - Dec 19, 2013
HOT and HUMID! It is generally around 90F during the high point in the day, with humidity around or above 80%. The two seasons here are the rainy and dry season. The dry season usually lasts from about November to May, and rainy season the rest of the year. The dry season is quite a literal term. I arrived here in February, and I remember that it did not rain until May. At all. Then rainy season started. Be prepared for some of the heaviest rains you will see. Monrovia is the wettest capitol in the world, with over 200 inches of rainfall, on average, annually. - Dec 24, 2012
Rainy season was April/May - October. Dry Season the rest of the time - but it does rain rather frequently in the dry season as well - just not every day. - Aug 3, 2010
Rainy season (April to September) brings almost 200 inches of rain - Monrovia is the wettest capital in the world - and temperatures between 75-95 degrees Fahrenheit. Dry season (October to March) is very hot and humid, with some dust storms. Temperature averages 85-100 degrees Fahrenheit. - Jul 13, 2009
