The climate of Yap (Micronesia)
The Yap Islands are a federal state in Micronesia. The federal state consists of four islands and several atolls situated far away. Most of these atolls are uninhabited. However, on some of them small communities have formed. The capital of the Yap Islands is Colonia. About half of the total population live in Colonia. Form 1945 till 1986 the islands were part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands which were governed by the United States of America. Since 1986 the Yap Islands have been part of Micronesia. On the main island of Yap the local airport is situated which can only be reached via Guam and Palau. The Yap Islands have a tropical rainforest climate with high precipitation figures all year round. However, the Yap Islands are among the driest in Micronesia. From July till December there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. Temperatures are 30 degrees Celsius on average. Because of the high precipitation figures humidity figures are high as well. During the hottest part of the day the ever blowing trade winds offer some cooling.
