The climate of Kaolack (Senegal)
Kaolack is located in the western part of Senegal on the north banks of the Saloum River. The city is located in the Kaolack region of which it also is the capital. Kaolack used to be the capital of the 16th century Kingdom of Saloum. A beautiful mosque can be found in the Medina Baay neighborhood. Most muslims here practice the Tijāniyyah, a Sufi Order also known as the Islam of the poor. Kaolack has a tropical savannah climate with one distinct rainy period from June till October. The rainy period has its peak in August and September. Average daytime temperatures are about 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit). However, peaks in temperatures are not uncommon. During the rainy period humidity figures are high as well. During the dry period a Harmattan wind may blow. This type of wind supplies dry and dusty air from the Sahara.
