Climate Statistics for Mozambique


Interpreting Mozambique's climate statistics graph

The Mozambique climate statistics describe the average temperature and the total rainfall during a typical year in Vilancolus. This is in the south of Mozambique and the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago. The weather can be very different in the north of Mozambique for example in Pemba, which is the gateway to the Quirimbas. The coastal areas of central Mozambique have a risk of cyclones during the rainy season, which normally runs from November to April. During this time it's the best to monitor local and international weather updates.

The red bars show typical monthly rainfall (in mm) for southern Mozambique, as measured by the left-side vertical-axis. The black lines towards the top of the graph show southern Mozambique's typical temperatures in C° for each month, with minimums and maximums indicated – as measured by the vertical axis on the right side. In the middle of each bar, the symbol at the centre of each indicates the average temperature.

November is a less predictable month of transition. Sometimes the rains start, although many days remain sunny and hot. The rains generally start earlier in the north of the country.
