Daily maximum temperatures

The highest daytime temperatures in Equatorial Guinea are reached in February with an average of 31.7 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is July, with an average of just 28.4 °C. In France, July is the warmest month, with 26.0 °C. There, it is coolest in January with an average of 7.8 °C.

Night time lows

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In Equatorial Guinea, temperatures drop as low as 22.2 °C in August. The warmest nights are in March at 23.6 °C. In France, it is coolest at night in January at 1.7 °C and warmest in July at 15.1 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 6.0 to 8.3 °C in Equatorial Guinea and 6.1 to 10.9 °C in France.

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. October brings the most rainy days (15.6) in Equatorial Guinea. With an average of only 2.1 days, January is the friendliest. In France, it rains most often in January with 11.0 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 Equatorial Guinea occurs in November, when about 9.4 liters per square meter fall per day. In France, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 1.7 liters per day in March to 2.5 in November. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 10.4 rainy days in Equatorial Guinea in November, each of them accounts for about 27.0 liters.

Sunshine hours per day

With 2,008 hours of sunshine per year, France is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (8.4 per day) are in July. Equatorial Guinea falls into second place with only 1,241 hours. There the sun is visible in July for only 1.9 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 January, the day in Equatorial Guinea is only 12.1 hours long. In April, on the other hand, it is 12.2 hours. In France, it is 8.7 hours in December and 15.8 in June.
