SOLOMON ISLANDS WEATHER SYNOPSIS

The Solomon Islands have a warm, tropical climate year-round. Temperatures across the country range between 23-31°C and precipitation ranges between 3000-5000 millimetres annually, although the most intense part of the rainy season occurs during the north-westerly monsoonal winds that bring tropical cyclones across the archipelago between December-March. The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is an important driver of climate in the Solomon Islands, heavily influencing periods of drought, the risk of floods and the frequency of tropical cyclones.
