The climate of Bogota (Colombia)
Bogota is the capital of Columbia, a country located in the northwestern part of the South American continent. Just like most American cities Bogota was built in a grid pattern. This makes it fairly easy for tourists to get their bearings in this metropolis. Bogota is located at an altitude of 2,600 meters above sea level in the Andes, on a plateau which is surrounded by mountains. Because the city is located at such a high altitude it doesnít have a tropical climate, which you would expect so close to the equator. Bogota has a moderate maritime climate (type Cfb). The climate can be characterized as such because during the warmest month the average 24 hour temperature remains below 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit). Average maximum temperatures are between 18-20 degrees Celsius (64-68 degrees Fahrenheit) all year round. Average minimum temperatures are between 5-8 degrees Celsius (41-45 degrees Fahrenheit). From December until February subzero temperatures may occur. Bogota gets 824 millimeters of annual precipitation and more than 1,650 hours of annual sunshine. (long term averages).

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
