• Due to its close proximity to the equator and the Atlantic Ocean, the climate in Nigeria is tropical.
• Temperatures are generally consistently high. The seasons are more defined by the difference in rainfall than a change on the thermometer. In Lagos, the average high in January is 88°F (31°C) and 73°F (23°C). There is hardly a drop of water that falls from the sky. In June it’s 82°Ω(28°C) and 73°F (23°C); June is the month with the heaviest rains.
• In the south of the country, a coastal region that includes Lagos and the oil-rich area of Port Harcourt, it’s incredibly humid, but it rarely gets hotter than 90°F (32°C). This area is characterized by two rainy periods: one short period and one long one. The long rainy season begins in late February or early March and lasts until July. The short rainy season starts in September and runs through October, though rains are not nearly as heavy as in the long season.
• Trainees taking their TEFL training in Nigeria would do well to bring light, loose-fitting clothes and, most importantly, an umbrella. In general, one can leave the winter jackets and long underwear behind, and can pack a favorite swim suit and a high-SPF sun lotion.
