The subtropical climate of Madagascar is essentially determined by southeastern trade winds originating from the Indian Ocean. There are two seasons: the rainy season and the dry cooler season. Between December and April, the northern monsoon prevails, which brings warm air from the equator and makes the climate wet and sultry.
The east coast is hot and humid during the rainy season and receives most precipitation. Occasionally, this area can also be affected by cyclones between February and March. Along the coast, the temperatures range from 27°C to 32°C during the rainy season and 18°C to 22°C in the dry season. In the rest of the year, from April to December, the winds come from the southeast direction (south monsoon) and are normally cooler and drier. The dry season, on the other hand, is much more pleasant and is considered the best travel time for Madagascar, and is usually from April to October. The area is, however, accessible all year round.
