The seasons here in the south are not the same as in the northern hemisphere. Northern summer is southern winter and vice versa. But there are also seasonal differences: In the northern part of the country it is mostly dry from March/April to October/November, with cool, pleasant nights and days mainly sunny with temperatures around 25ºC (77ºF). The rest of the year: More rain, most of it in January/February. Temperatures usually varying between 25º – 35º C (77º-95ºF), occasionally approaching 40ºC (104ºF), with most of the precipitation in the form of brief afternoon thunderstorms. In the south, the Cape Coast has winter rain, most of it in June/July, otherwise mainly dry. However, it is a typical coastal climate with sudden changes in weather, maybe miserable while it lasts, but fortunately not too often. And even in the middle of the local winter temperatures frequently reach the thirties (centigrades), around 90ºF. Bear in mind that Cape Town and Beirut are on the same latitude, South and North respectively.
