The climate of Managua (Nicaragua)
Managua is the capital of Nicaragua, which is situated in Central America. With 1.8 million inhabitants it is the second biggest town of Central America, after Guatemala City. Managua lies on Lake Managua and is originally an Indian settlement. In 1819 the town of Leal Villa de Santiago de Managua was founded in this place, which became the capital of Nicaragua in 1885. Earthquakes and civil wars were the cause that the town regularly had to be partly rebuilt and renovated. In times of political rest the risk of catastrophes does keep lying in wait. Managua lies in a region where there is always a chance of earthquakes, like for instance the disastrous earthquakes that destroyed the town for the greater part in 1931 and 1972.
Managua has a tropical savannah climate (type Aw) with high maximum temperatures of thirty to thirty-six degrees on an average. In March and April the temperature can even rise a little higher, after which the start of the rainy season makes the temperature drop a bit. The combination of tropical temperatures and a high relative air humidity makes the temperature feel high. In Managua the amount of precipitation is yearly almost two-thousand millimeters, of which the greater part falls in the period of May until November. Within the rainy season there is a little less rainfall in July and August, after which on an average September is the wettest month with a long standing average of 404 millimeters.

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:
