Daily maximum temperatures

The highest daytime temperatures on the Cocos Islands are reached in February with an average of 30.5 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is August, with an average of just 28.2 °C. In Germany, July is the warmest month, with 24.0 °C. There, it is coolest in January with an average of 3.4 °C.

Night time lows

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. On the Cocos Islands, temperatures drop as low as 24.4 °C in August. The warmest nights are in April at 25.7 °C. In Germany, it is coolest at night in January at -1.4 °C and warmest in July at 13.4 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 3.8 to 5.1 °C on the Cocos Islands and 4.7 to 10.6 °C in Germany.

Rain days per month

By definition, a rain 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. March brings the most rainy days (15.4) on the Cocos Islands. With an average of only 6.4 days, October is the friendliest. In Germany, it rains most often in January with 12.3 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) on the Cocos Islands occurs in April, when about 9.7 liters per square meter fall per day. In Germany, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 1.2 liters per day in April to 2.6 in July. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 14.5 rainy days on the Cocos Islands in April, each of them accounts for about 19.9 liters.

Hours of daylight

The length of a day varies throughout the year and depends on the distance from the equator. In June, the day on the Cocos Islands is only 11.5 hours long. In December, on the other hand, it is 12.9 hours. In Germany, it is 8.1 hours in December and 16.6 in June.
