What is the climate in Fiji?

Fiji's climate is tropical. Overall, temperatures between Novemberand April (summer) are slightly higher than the winter months, asis the humidity and the resulting tropical downpours. Light cottonclothes are advisable at all times - only between May and October(winter) will a light sweater be needed for nights and earlymornings. However, the weather in Fiji varies considerably between islandregions. This is due to the dominant south-east trade winds whichtraps clouds over the mountains on the south-eastern sides of thelarger islands - rainfall in Suva is much higher than in Nadi onthe western, leeward side of the main island which is good if youwant to experience the vibrant rainforest but not so good forsun-bathing. Summer - December to April Summer begins early in December and lasts until April. During thistime it is hot and humid (32oC by day) with bright sunny morningsand predictable late afternoon downpours on the larger islands,although the small offshore islands often miss these downpoursaltogether. This 'wet season' is a good time to come to experiencethe lush vibrancy of the rainforest - rivers are full, waterfallsgushing and the hills of the larger islands become refreshinglygreen. The down side is the high humidity, the increase inmosquitoes and the possibility of tropical storms or mightiercyclones. Winter - May to November By the end of April, Fiji experiences a more moderate climate.Temperatures are comfortably warm by day (27oC) and pleasantly coolat night (19oC) when a light jumper may be necessary. By midwinter(July), many parts of the country welcome rain - the hills aroundNadi turn brown and water shortages occur on the smaller islands.However, on the eastern sides of the larger islands, notably Suva,Savusavu and Taveuni, rainfall is never far away keeping the airclear and scenery green year round.
