Lima Peru Weather
Lima Peru Weather, according to its geographical location (in the tropical southern
hemisphere) Peru should have a warm, humid and rainy. However, the
presence of the Andes, the South Pacific anticyclone circulation and the
cold Humboldt Current has certain environmental conditions, giving rise
to a variety of climates.
On the coast almost never rains, is characterized by the dense fog and
dim rains between May and November, producing cold feeling though just
average annual temperature of 14 ° C and 18 ° C. In summer
(December-April), humidity decreases and the sun shines brightly.
Both in the mountains and in the forest there is a dry season or summer
(May-October) in which there are many sunny days, and a rainy season
between December and March ("winter"). While sawing has a cool, dry
climate with an average temperature of between
9 º C and 18 º C, the forest has a tropical climate with temperatures
ranging between 26 º C and 40 º C.
In the valleys can be found in temperate and dry climate all year round,
with some rain during the summer.
The mountains trap moisture laden air causing rain and promoting a very
fertile land. By contrast dehydrated make it through the air, causing
deserts on the opposite slope. This occurs just as the Andes and the
Amazon, then why the city of Lima in the Peruvian coast is not as bleak
as the rest of deserts in the world?
The Pacific Ocean plays a key role, with very few deserts in the world
with a gentle sea breezes laden with moisture bathing the desert coast,
with a chain and lock the catch off the coast, stabilizing the
temperature to avoid are extreme and the rest of deserts, shortening the
extension might have this area. The next time you see a cloudy day, we
should be aware of how lucky we are to live in a desert that always
wakes up with a thin layer of water on the surface or the miracle of
winter deserts full of vegetation as green ravine in the valley of Lurin.
In the absence of these factors the valleys of the Rio Rimac and Chillon
would not be so fertile and most likely the capital would have been
Despite being so close to the city of Ecuador in principle would
condition a tropical climate warmer. In general maritime desert climate
of Lima, weather conditions "soft" without extreme temperatures and in
other deserts, has high humidity, clouds and haze recurrence and
presence of BISAS constant.
Temperature: only in the summer months, at certain times of noon, we
have high temperatures (greater than 27 º C) in the same way, only in
the winter months, mainly in the morning; they can be considered low
(under 14 º C).
Temperature and Precipitation
The average temperature and rainfall Lima is the following
(Min - Max) Precipitation
Lima 15 ° C - 27 ° C 0 mm - 20 mm
Humidity: The presence of excessive moisture is a particular
phenomenon and constant. The relative humidity is high in all seasons,
reaching the average over 80% in every month. It highlights the problem
of thermal sensation (one sees more heat or cold than it actually does).
Precipitation: total lack of rainfall throughout the year, most that I
reached is 3mm per month in the winter months. Not to mention the garua
(fine mist), which is present mainly in the mornings and in the autumn
Winds: rates have generally soft and constant throughout the
year, predominantly in the morning calm. At noon the predominant
direction is South-West (direction in which lies the sea) with light
winds, though moderate winds between December and February, are
considerable. In the afternoons the prevailing direction is South-East
with recurrent low wind and calm that averages 30%.
Overcast (cloudy): Lima has a lot of months under overcast skies,
going so far as to take into the winter months and half hours of direct
sunlight per day. In overcast or cloudy lime clouds predominate type
"strata" in the mornings throughout the year. Stratus clouds are grayish
basket are very deal superficies and are not associated with the
presence of rain.
For lighting comfort, the presence of lime cloud cover makes the glare
effect is of particular interest, location and size of the openings ends
up being the most important determinants
