Daily maximum temperatures

The highest daytime temperatures in Atacama are reached in January with an average of 22.8 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is July, with an average of just 16.4 °C. In Colombia, March is the warmest month, with 30.7 °C. There, it is coolest in June with an average of 29.7 °C.

Night time lows

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In Atacama, temperatures drop as low as 7.8 °C in July. The warmest nights are in February at 17.9 °C. In Colombia, it is coolest at night in June at 21.9 °C and warmest in March at 22.4 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 3.4 to 8.6 °C in Atacama and 7.8 to 8.7 °C in Colombia.

Rainy days per month

By definition, a rainy day is a day on which at least 0.1 liters of precipitation per m² fall. This corresponds to a 1 square meter puddle in which the water stands 0.1 mm high — insofar as the water does not seep away or evaporate. So it does not have to rain all day long. July brings the most rainy days (0.7) in Atacama. With an average of only zero days, January is the friendliest. In Colombia, it rains most often in May with 15.0 days.

Precipitation amount per day

Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in Atacama occurs in July, when about 0.2 liters per square meter fall per day. In Colombia, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 3.5 liters per day in January to 8.8 in May. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 15.0 rainy days in Colombia in May, each of them accounts for about 17.5 liters.

Sunshine hours per day

With 2,884 hours of sunshine per year, Atacama is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (9.5 per day) are in January. Colombia falls into second place with only 1,971 hours. There the sun is visible in April for only 4.7 hours per day, so not hidden behind clouds.

Hours of daylight

The length of a day varies throughout the year and depends on the distance from the equator. In June, the day in Atacama is only 10.5 hours long. In December, on the other hand, it is 13.9 hours. In Colombia, it is 11.9 hours in January and 12.4 in June.
