The Weather in Nigeria .
The Weather in Nigeria is characterised by heavy rain, high humidity, and relatively low temperature. Lagos in the south is particularly hot and humid between the months of December and February. And, discomfort from heat and humidity can be pretty high.
Most houses, hotels and offices are fully air conditioned during the intense heat. The south and coastal areas experience two rainy seasons annually. The heaviest rain falls in June and October. Temperatures could reach as high as 31°C during the day and 26°C at night.
The north has a much prolonged dry season between October and April. There's hardly any rainfall with more sun and even higher temperatures. But humidity is relatively lower there. The North experience only one wet season between July and September.
Places inland like Abuja experience high temperatures, humidity and lots of rain from March to October. There's really nothing you can do about the weather as they say. But it's worth mentioning the Harmattan , which are winds blowing from the northeast, bring some relatively cooler but dusty air to the south coast during December and February. For a few days there's light relief from the more prevailing sticky weather.
