The climate of Saint Louis (Senegal)
Saint Louis is located in the most northwestern part of Senegal where the Senegal River flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Saint Louis is the capital of the Saint Louis province and is located in the vicinity of the border with Mauretania. The city was founded in the second part of the 17th century by the French and used to be the center of the slave trade in southwest Africa. Nowadays the city is very popular among tourists, mainly because of its French colonial character. Djoudj National Park is situated at 60 kilometers from the city. This national park is a Unesco preservation site. More than 3 million birds of over 400 species live here. Saint Louis has a warm steppe climate with one short rainy period from July till September. Precipitation figures are much lower here than in the southeastern part of Senegal. The climate of Saint Louis is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Ocean has a cooling influence here. From November till April a Harmattan wind may blow. This type of wind supplies dry and dusty air from the Sahara.
