Weather Overview for Boa Vista
Located in the Atlantic Ocean at the eastern edge of the Cape Verde island chain, Boa Vista island has a hot, tropical climate. Daily temperatures range from 19oC to 25oC in January, which is the coldest month. During August through October temperature ranges start at 24oC in the morning and warm to 30oC in the afternoon. The island is known for its sand dunes and beaches.
Sunlight hours reach a peak at an average of 10 hours daily in April and May. This is due to the prevailing winds from Africa preventing the formation of clouds during this time.
Summer on Boa Vista is not the warmest time of the year, but visitors to the island will experience a warming trend that lasts through until autumn. June starts with lows averaging 22oC and highs around 28oC. This temperature range is maintained during July.
June is one of the driest months of the year with an average of 1 mm of rain for the entire month. July and August have significantly more rain, with an average of 12 to 13 mm, but this small amount usually falls during one or two storms, leaving visitors a chance to enjoy the island without worrying about inclement weather.
Autumn is the wettest time of the year. This is when Boa Vista feels like a warm, tropical spot. From August through October, temperatures start in the morning around 24oC and rise to 30oC in the afternoon. A sea breeze begins to blow from the late morning through evening to keep Boa Vista comfortable despite the warm temperatures. Both September and October experience 24 mm of rain, but this rain falls over a short period of time in brief cloudbursts. September only has four wet days for the month, on average, and October only has two rainy days.
Winter marks the coldest time of the year in Boa Vista. Temperatures begin to drop in November until the area reaches its lowest temperatures from December through March. During this time, the area experiences lows between 19 and 21oC and highs around 25 to 26oC. Winter is the second rainiest season on Boa Vista. Rainfall in November is typically around 10 mm, December averages 15 mm, January sees about 21 mm, and February usually has only 11 mm of precipitation. All of this is in the form of rain, as the island is too warm for sleet or snow.
March through June are the driest months of the year, with rainfall only happening on one day each month. Short, but heavy, showers occur during the rainy season of September and October. After that, a prevailing dry wind from the Sahara desert keeps Boa Vista dry and warm from December through April.
Even when visiting this island during tropical storm season, hurricanes rarely hit the island. Most of the storms get pushed toward the Caribbean Sea far to the south of the Cape Verde islands.
