The climate in the Congo is the same across the country, with slight variations between the northern and southern regions. In general, the year is divided into four seasons:
A long rainy season from October to December, a short dry season from January to February, a short rainy season from March to April, and a long dry season from May to September.
The north is equatorial, hot and humid, while in the south the climate is tropic and humid with slightly less rain from October to May and a dry period from June to September. The centre is distinguished by a sub-equatorial climate marked by a very pronounced dry season.
