Climate and Average Weather in Seychelles
The Seychelles islands have a warm and humid tropical rainforest climate. Because the islands are relatively small, there is relatively little climate variation. The largest differences can be found in the rainfall amounts. The afternoon temperature for all the islands is around thirty degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) in summer months, after which the temperature drops to an average of 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) in the cooler winter months. Because the Seychelles lies south of the equator, the coolest months are June till September and the warmest months December to March. Night temperatures are just a few degrees lower than daytime temperatures.The area where tropical depressions and hurricanes occur during hurricane season is located just below the Seychelles. This means the islands may experience significant rainfall due to hurricane activity south of the Seychelles between December and May. December until March officially belong to the rainy season, with especially a lot of precipitation in the months of December and January. In addition to the large amount of precipitation these are also very warm and humid months. The best time to visit the Seychelles is from March to November, when you have a pleasant or warm temperature and hardly any or moderate precipitation. April and May are the warmest months of the year, since there is not much wind.
