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

The weather is mostly hot and humid, 80s and 90s. July and August are the cooler months. - May 2020


Perfect with a rainy season and a dry season. The sunrises and sunsets are incredibly beautiful all year round. The sky is the best thing about Brasilia. It's truly spectacular. - May 2017


The wet seasons runs generally from October to April and the dry season from May until September. The temperature never really dips below 60 degrees. The dry season averages mid-70s during the day and 60s at night. The wet season is a bit hotter. The climate here is extremely pleasant. - May 2017


Hot, sunny. During rainy season (September - March), it rains, but not usually all day. - Mar 2017


There isn't a more perfect place for weather--it is never too hot or cold. Winter can mean long sleeves in the morning, summers from 2-4 PM can get hot, but it is never intolerable. Even the rain is great. Brasilia is situated on an elevated plateau which protects it from the high heats of Rio. - May 2016


Beautiful year round. It's either rainy season or not. 70s to 80s temperature, low humidity, brilliant sunshine. - Aug 2015


Winter is typically low 60s F in the early morning to upper 70s and low 80s in the afternoon. Winter is really dry and so you should drink plenty of water. Summer gets a lot of rain, usually, although there are bouts of dryness as well, and gets from 70-90s. It's humid, but not unbearably so. The only problem are the insects. - Aug 2015


There is a wet season (Sep. - Mar.) and a dry season (Apr. - Aug.). The wet season will have some rain every day except for December, but it is normally just in the afternoon. It may rain continually for a couple of days, but not for the whole season. The dry season gets increasingly dry until there isn't a drop of rain for a couple of months. September is the hottest month of the year, with highs in the upper 80sF. Overnight lows are in the upper 60s. The rest of the rainy season has highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. The dry season has highs in the upper 70s and lows ovenght can get down to about 58F, but we mostly see temps between 65-75F. - Aug 2015


The climate is one of the best things about Brasilia. There are two seasons: dry (roughly May - October) with a hot sun, warm days and cool nights when it simply does not rain, making camping trips and afternoon BBQs completely worry-free; and rainy (November - April) when a tropical afternoon rain storm is common most days, and a 2-day, non-stop rain storm flares up every 2-3 weeks. - Sep 2012


Rainy season and dry season. The dry season gets pretty miserable toward the end, when humidity levels can drop to 10%. - Dec 2011


We have been here for a part of the Southern Hemisphere's winter. 80s everyday, no rain, brilliant blue skies. Paradise. - Aug 2011


By far one of the best things of this post is the weather. During the dry season lows are in the 60s while, highs are in the 70s. In the rainy season, lows are in the upper 60s and highs in the mid 80s. - Dec 2009


The dry season is very dry and some have headaches from not drinking enough, but my family was ok. The rainy season sounds worse than it is - it pours for an hour or two a day and that's it. - Nov 2009


Like living in South Florida. Two seasons, dry and rainy. Dry season is June - October and rainy season November - May. - Jun 2009
