The climate of Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago)
Almost on the exact same spot as where the Native American city of Cumucurapo was situated the Spanish founded the city of Port of Spain. From the end of the 18th century Port of Spain was the capital of Trinidad and Tobago. Although the name refers to the Spanish colonial era Port of Spain flourished under the rule of the British. Over the past 3 centuries the city became the home of 50,000 people. However, in the entire urban area of Port of Spain about 250,000 people live and work. Port of Spain has a tropical monsoon climate with a rainy season from May till December. During this period rain can be expected during most days; most rain falls in the form of showers. During the dry season from January till April precipitation figures are much lower and showers do not last as long as in the rainy period. During the dry season most showers only last for 5-10 minutes. Characteristic for a tropical climate are high temperatures. During the day temperatures rise to 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit). During the evening temperatures slowly drop to reach about 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit) when the sun rises again.
