Nigeria is located in Africa. The country is washed by the Gulf of Guinea. Nigeria is a small country. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track a total of nine settlements or resorts.

Equatorial monsoon and subequatorial, with high humidity. The average annual temperatures everywhere exceed +25 o C. In the north, the hottest months are March – June, in the south, April, when the temperature reaches + 30–32 o C. The rainiest and most cool month is August. The greatest amount of precipitation falls in the Niger Delta (up to 4000 mm per year), in the central part of the country - 1000–1400 mm., And in the extreme northeast - only 500 mm. The driest period is winter, when the Harmattan wind blows from the north-east, bringing in daytime heat and sharp daily temperature drops from the desert regions of the mainland (during the day the air warms up to +40 C and more, and at night the temperature drops to +10 C).

Nigeria: 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.
