Today the warmest water in Ghana is recorded in Axim. Its value in this location is 81°F. And the coldest one is in Sekondi Takoradi, its value 79°F.

The trend can be seen on the graph. It shows the change in average sea surface temperature over the past two months.

For the two most popular locations for swimming in Ghana, the graphs of changes in the average water temperature throughout the year are as follows:

We process, analyze and store data for every beach and city in Ghana. Below is a table with current weather data and trends in some places of the country.

Climate in Ghana

Ghana is located in Africa. The country is washed by the Gulf of Guinea. Ghana is a small country. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track only five settlements.

Equatorial monsoon, in the south-west of the country - transitional to equatorial. The extended territory contributes to the formation of quite noticeable differences between the climatic conditions in the north and south of the country. The average monthly temperature in summer is from +26 C in the south to +32 C in the north, in winter - + 22-24 C and +30 C, respectively. Moreover, the highest temperature in the southern regions falls, oddly enough, from April to June (from +27 C to +35 C in the shade). In January-February, the Harmattan blows, a dry, dusty wind from the north, although its influence is almost not felt in the coastal regions of the country. Precipitation in the north of the country falls from 1000 mm per year, and in the south-west - up to 2000 mm. There are two main rainy seasons - from April to June and from September to October. However, the general distribution of precipitation throughout the country is uneven - coastal areas (including Accra) receive up to 1700 mm of rain per year in two periods - from April to June, and in October. At the same time, up to 1300 mm of precipitation falls in the interior of Volta, and May and October are considered the wettest. At the same time, in the northern regions affected by dry air masses from the Sahara, the rainy season lasts from May to September. At the same time, a short-term rainfall regime is characteristic of the whole territory of Ghana - rains quickly begin and end quickly even in the rainy season. However, the amount of water that has fallen in one such rain can reach 100 mm.

Ghana: oceans and seas

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
