The climate of Toamasina (Madagascar)
Toamasina is a large port in the northeastern part of Madagascar. During French colonial times the city was known as Tamatave. Nowadays Toamasina is the most important port of the country that is directly connected with the capital Antananarivo by railway. The city is located in the province of Atsinanana of which it also is the capital. The city has its own university. The city is not very popular among tourists because the largest part of the city consists of slums and the sea water is too polluted to swim in. The tourists that do travel here come to enjoy the colorful local markets. Toamasina has a tropical rainforest climate with extremely high precipitation figures all year round. During some months more than 500 millimeters of precipitation can be recorded. High temperatures in combination with high precipitation figures cause humidity figures to be high as well. The southeasterly trade wind strongly influences the climate in Toamasina. During the first few months of the year there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes.

Climate figures are very useful but dont present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures dont 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:
