Climate in Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is located in Australia and Oceania. The country is washed by four seas, such as the Pacific Ocean, the Coral Sea, the New Guinea Sea, the Solomon Sea. Papua New Guinea has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we monitor 17 settlements and resorts.

Equatorial and subequatorial, marine. The climate of Papua New Guinea is hot and almost everywhere very humid. Summer temperatures fluctuate around + 24-32 o C, winter - + 24-28 o C, while the maximum air temperature on the coast at any time of the year can reach +40 o C, and in the mountainous areas it also stably holds at 7 -10 C below. Moreover, in the central regions, even in summer, the temperature at night can drop to +6 o C, and during the day the air warms up to + 26-28 o C. On the coast, the climate is more even - the difference between day and night temperatures rarely reaches 4-5 oC, but always very hot. Precipitation falls from 1300 to 5000 mm per year, and their nature can radically differ in different regions of the country. About 1,000 mm of rain falls annually in Port Moresby (the southeastern coast of the Gulf of Papua), while in Lae (just 300 km to the north) - up to 4,500 mm, and in the western regions of the island of New Britain - (300 km east of Lae ) - up to 5200-6000 mm per year. In most of New Guinea, the wet season is from December to March, the dry season is from May to October, although most often the seasonality depends on the nature of the main winds and can noticeably change even on two nearby slopes of the same mountain range. During the two transition months (April and November), the weather is unstable and is not suitable for travel due to strong winds and short-term, but very powerful showers.

Papua New Guinea: 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.
