As Senegal has a dry and rainy season, Dakar offers the general country climate, but its position as a peninsula makes the town and its surroundings more moderate. It will never be as hot as in the deep East or as rainy as in Casamance in the very South.
The temperatures vary from 20 to 25 °C in the dry season (from November to May) and from 25 to 35°C in the rainy season (June to October). Furthermore, it helps to note that it does not rain every day during the rainy season. And even when it occurs, the rain usually does not last longer than 1 h, although it is a strong rain.
