The climate of Maio (Cape Verde)
Maio is a small island which is part of the Sotavento or leeward islands of Cape Verde, situated in the Atlantic Ocean. The largest city on the island is Vila do Maio, about half of the islandís population of 6,500 live in this city. The main source of income for the island is fishing and salt extraction. Just outside Vila do Maio the airport can be found. A unique feature is the large forest in the central part of the island, this is quite unique in Cape Verde. The highest point on Maio is Mount Batalhas. Maio has a tropical savannah climate with one distinct rainy period. Most rain falls in August, September and October; the rest of the year is relatively dry. Temperatures start to rise when the rainy period starts, during this period temperatures are highest. When you travel to the highest parts of the island temperatures are lower. Temperatures are strongly influenced by the wind. When the wind comes from the Sahara temperatures rise, this type of wind is known as the Harmattan wind. When the wind comes from the Atlantic Ocean temperatures drop.
