Lima Weather

The Lima weather is in contrary to what people might think not the hot dry desert climate we know from other desert cities in the world. Lima weather is mainly dominated by some additional circumstances created by its location. Perched between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Lima has two air currents affecting the Lima weather. The Humbolt Current coming from the South of the Continent and the northern warmer current together with the currents coming from the Andes, make the Lima weather quite unpredictable as these two current provoke a thick fog at times, blocking out the sun. Most sun can be seen in the summer months, December through March, when temperatures easily go over 30 degrees and the whole of Lima goes to the beaches. Temperatures hardly go under 15 degrees, but in the winter months, July through September Lima weather can feel much colder due to the humidity. True rain one will see almost never in Lima, but some drizzle does happen at times.
