During the wet season, temperatures range from 22-31°C (72-88°F) during the day and 17-24°C (63-75°F) at night. This time of year is characterized by high humidity and frequent rainfall, often accompanied by thunderstorms. The dry season brings cooler temperatures with highs ranging from 19–29 °C (66–84 °F) and lows around 14–24 °C (57–75 °F).

The south, which borders the Bight of Benin, is clearly wetter than the north. In the north, the rainy season lasts from May to October. In the south from mid-March to November. The coastal area, with the capital Porto-Novo, is cooler due to the moderating influence of the sea. In the warm period, November to April, the average temperature is 32°C. In the far north it can reach 40°C during the same period. November and December are the best months to travel. Check a2zgov for Benin government and politics.
