The climate of Yangon (Myanmar)
Rangoon, also written as Yangon, is the largest city in Myanmar and was the capital of the country until 7 November 2005. Nowadays Naypyidaw is the capital of Myanmar. Rangoon has a population figure of more than 4 million and is located on the banks of the Rangoon River, in the delta which flows into the Gulf of Martaban. The most important pagoda in the country can be found here, the Shwedagon pagoda. Rangoon has a tropical monsoon climate (type Am) with very wet summers caused by the southwesterly monsoon which is from the second part of May till the second part of October. During the second part of October precipitation figures decrease and the dry season starts. During the winter temperatures rise to eventually reach 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) on average in the hottest month which is April. Rangoon can record 2,681 millimeters of annual precipitation which falls in the form of rain because of the high temperatures. August is the wettest month with 602 millimeters of rain. During this month it rains almost every day.
