The climate of Wewak (Papua New Guinea)
Wewak is a small town located on the north coast of Papua New Guinea in the province of East Sepik of which it also is the capital. During WWII the largest Japanese airbase of Papua New Guinea was situated here. Because of this Wewak was the target for bombings by the allies several times. The city still has its own airport: Wewak International Airport. The city is situated on the place where the Sepik River flows into the Pacific Ocean. The old city center of Wewak is situated on a peninsula; because of this the city is surrounded by beautiful white beaches with palm trees. Wewak has a tropical rainforest with high precipitation figures all year round. Only during the last few months of the year precipitation figures may be slightly lower. Temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius on average all year round. This also causes humidity figures to be high all year round. However, an ever blowing sea wind offers some cooling.
