Brazil climate is predominantly tropical, although strictly
speaking, there are five climate regions of equatorial, tropical,
semi-arid, highland tropical and subtropical, across Brasil.
The climate in Brazil northeast is humid-tropical
and semi-arid in the interior - sertao. With no less than
seven thousand kilometres of coastline so near the equator, Brazil
north east enjoy a very warm tropical climate all year round.
It is little surprising that with this very favourable coastal
climate, most of Brazil northeast's population live on or near the
The north east can get very hot, in fact, the Rio
Grade do Norte state is noted to have the hottest climate in
brazil. This is largely attributed to the fact that the large
chain of Serra da Borborema, which runs parallel to the humid
coastal cities and physically separating them from the dry interior,
only extends a mere few dozen miles into Rio Grande do Norte; unlike
other states such as Paraíba, Pernambuco, Alagoas, Sergipe and Bahia.
In the northeast, the lowest Brasil climate temperature will
often exceed 23°C (73°F) and reaching highs in excess of 27°C (82F)
on the coast. In the interior, temperatures have been recorded to
get as high as 40°C (104°F) during the dry season between June/July and
As for Brazil weather conditions, rainfall is often
sparse and irregular, though when it comes, it can be terrential
downpours. While there is generally no wintery conditions, as a
rough guide, you can expect cloudy days with a 1-2 °C dip in
temperature so good weather conditions for your Brazil travel
northeast is assured.
