Accra Climate & Weather
Accra lies just above the equator, and therefore enjoys a typical tropical climate. The only marked season is a rainy season. Temperatures in the country are constantly high, ranging from a low of 70°F (21°C) in the coolest month of August to a high of 100°F (38°C) or more in March. Humidity adds to the discomfort during the rainy season, which is in April, May, June, September and October. The 'harmattan', a dry desert wind, affects Accra in January. The best time to visit Accra varies depending on desired activities, but generally speaking the dry months between November and April are the best because they are slightly less hot and humid, the roads are in better shape, and there are fewer mosquitoes. During these months the harmattan may blow but the wind helps reduce humidity which can be a relief.
