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

Lagos is constantly hot, expect it to be at least 80F degrees on a daily basis, generally much higher. It will be humid for most of the year until the winter, but the lack of humidity in the winter is met with a dramatic rise in dust in the air from harmattan. - Jul 2020


Broadly, it's hot and humid the whole year. Within that, there are seasonal shifts. Harmattan runs from (roughly) December to March, and is dry, overcast, beige, and very unpleasant. There's a month or two after Harmattan ends and before rainy season begins where it's just very very hot and sunny. Rainy season lasts through most of the spring and summer, and is well named. The fall is the nicest time of year in Lagos--some rain, but not so much that it's cloudy all the time, a good breeze, and less extreme temperatures than the period between Harmattan and rainy season. - Jun 2019
