The climate of Lima (Peru)
Lima is the capital of Peru which is situated along the west coast of South America. Lima has a warm desert climate (type Bwh). The climate of Lima can be classified as being a warm desert climate because the city gets less than 20 millimeters of annual rain and the average annual temperature is above 18 degrees Celsius (19.5). A desert climate is characterized by large differences in temperatures within 24 hours and between the seasons. Regions with a desert climate also get many hours of sunshine. However, this doesnít go for Lima where maximum temperatures during the warmest months are 26-27 degrees Celsius; during the coldest months temperatures are 15 degrees Celsius on average which is only 12 degrees Celsius less. The relatively cold Humboldt Current causes fog which can be very persistent. Especially from June till October days are grey and foggy with hardly any sunshine.

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:
