Walvis Bay Climate & Weather
Walvis Bay Climate and Weather
Walvis Bay has a desert or arid climate, and is one of the driest towns on the planet. However, despite its lack of rainfall, Walvis is not an overly hot place. The cold Atlantic Ocean and the prevailing offshore currents ensure that the temperature in Walvis averages around 75°F (24°C) in summer (February) and 64°F (17°C) in mid-winter (July). The town experiences no humidity but in the evenings a dense sea fog often rolls in off the ocean. This fog can sometimes be quite thick and most animals in the region use it as their principal source of moisture in the unforgiving desert climate.
