Bogota Climate & Weather
Bogota Climate and Weather
Bogota, located towards the centre of Colombia, has a subtropical highland climate. This capital city is notoriously overcast, with fog rolling in early in the morning on an average of 220 days a year. At 8,661 feet (2,640m), the high altitude of the city means year-round temperatures are fairly moderate, with an annual average of 58°F (14°C). The driest time of the year, between December and March, is the best time to pay Bogota a visit. This period is also the warmest time of year, with March having an average temperature of 68°F (20°C). April, May, September, October and November are the rainiest months, with average maximum temperatures of 64°F (18°C) and lows of 45°F (7°C). While the temperatures don't fluctuate dramatically throughout the year, a single day can seemingly have several seasons in Bogota. Visitors should dress in layers and prepare for everything, as a sunny morning can end with an afternoon thunderstorm - the locals know this as sol de lluvia, which translates to 'rain's sun'.
