The climate of Pernambuco: when to go to Pernambuco

In the area of the Sertão Pernambucano, which includes more than half of the territory of the state, the climate is semi-desert, here the duration of the rainy season is significantly reduced, the rainy months are those between March and June, drought is common in dry months between July and February.

The average rainfall is not too low, it varies between 600 mm and 800 mm, but they fall almost exclusively in the four months of the rainy season. In the highest areas of the plateau, thanks to the altitude, the climate is characterized by hot days and cool nights.
