The island of the 2 seasons

The weather in Boavista is always good. If you want to understand when to go to Boavista Cabo Verde, this information will be very useful.
Halfway between the tropic of cancer and the equator, Cape Verde enjoys a warm, dry climate for most of the year, with average temperatures ranging from 22 to 28 degrees. In cooler months (January and February), the trade winds from the Northeast change the weather, blowing more and sometimes carrying clouds of sand that create a mist of fine dust, called “Dry Brush.” Temperatures rarely fall below 20 °, not even at night, and the water temperature approaches the air temperature.
In the spring, this is in the months of March, April and May, the wind is less constant but more gusty, while temperatures increase by a few degrees. Winter and spring are very similar and for years they are almost “inverted”.
Rainfall mainly occurs in late summer when temperatures start to fall (in July and August it also reaches 32 °) and for some days it may rain, but it never rains for more than 24 hours continuously.
Autumn does not seem to exist: September, October and November become alternatively summer or winter, depending on the period when the wind feels more or less.
The island of Boavista is the natural continuation of the Sahara desert in miniature, with an arid climate and an almost serene sky, interspersed with fast white clouds that cross the sky.
Depending on the coastal area and the seasonal period, winds and tides alternate, giving paradisiacal periods for surfers and kiters, who enjoy long hours of light and the gentle temperature of the water (almost 30 ° in summer).
