The Republic of Congo has an equatorial climate with a bimodal rainfall pattern and temperature structure. March through May sees a rainy season as well as September through November. Mean monthly temperatures range from 23-26°C, with February through March experiencing the highest temperatures, and June through August experiencing the lowest. The length of the dry season follows a gradient from south to north, with southern locales experiencing a longer dry season than northern ones. The dry season extends for 3 to 4 months at 2°S and 1 to 2 months for the rest of the country. Mean annual precipitation for the Republic of Congo is 1,612 mm. The wettest areas of the country are between 1-3°S, with annual precipitation above 2,000 mm. The Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is also an important force in driving the rainy seasons as it migrates between the equator and the tropics throughout the year.

HEALTH

Be aware of possible health risks in 

Congo

Yellow fever - The yellow fever virus is found in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America. The virus is spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. There is no medicine to treat or cure an infection. To prevent getting sick from yellow fever, use insect repellent, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and get vaccinated.

Malaria - Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a parasite that commonly infects a certain type of mosquito which feeds on humans. People who get malaria are typically very sick with high fevers, shaking chills, and flu-like illness. Although malaria can be a deadly disease, illness and death from malaria can usually be prevented.
