Owing to its size, weather in Brazil northeast
will vary between states, according to geographical location,
although with not much variation between the warmer and cooler
As already established, the hottest climate region in
Brazil is the northeast, where temperatures in excess of 38°C -
100 F are often recorded during the dry season, usually between
May/June to November.
The majority of Brazilian people reside on the coast, where Brasil
weather conditions, though humid is a lot cooler from the
tropical sea breezes, in comparison with the hot and dry interior -
sertao. This in itself make a Brazil visit to the
north east all the more appealing.
Brasil weather Seasons are quite different to those experienced
in Europe and the US. Most of Brazil, with the exception of the
south, have two distinct seasons. These are the rainy season,
which will vary from state to state in the northeast.
This can be anywhere from about mid-December to July, though even
then you will still encounter the most glorious of days. In Natal
for instance, the temperature is 83°F throughout the year and you
can expect approximately 300 days of sunshine cooled by a tropical
sea breeze. The dry season, which is between June and November give
or take a month or so difference in some northeast states.
As for the best time to make a visit to Brazil's north east cities
such as Fortaleza, Natal, Bahia in Salvador, Recife or Porto
Galinhas or many of the other tourist resorts, temperature-wise,
any time of the year is good, since temperatures rarely drop more
than 1-3ºC below those of the dry season.
If you are planning a visit to Brazil north east, the region does not have a Winter season as we would know
it in European or US terms. Brazil weather in the north east does
not get cold nor chilly, unlike in the South and Southeast, of
Central Minas Gerais to Rio Grande do Sul, which experiences the
occasional cold spell, yet remains relatively mild.
If you are planning your Brazil travel northeast during
Spring, then the worst you can expect from the Winter or rainy
Brazil weather, is short-lived heavy downpours or showers, which are
usually followed by beaming sunshine. Even in the rainy season, the
weather in Brazil northeast will be excellent most of the time and
rainfall won't be significant enough to ruin your Brazil vacations.
