weather in Manaus

The graph shows that:
1) Average temperature is high, and with little variaton throughout the year; this is a consequence from the fact that Manaus is located very near the Equatorial Line, and therefore the sun rays reach the city near perpendicularly, at any season of the year. Temperatures oscilate between 26 and 27 degrees Celsius.
2) Manaus is very wet, most of the year. The jungle around the city is continuously cycling a huge volume of water, causing frequent raining. There is a drier season from June to October, but even during these months (the winter of Southern hemisphere), the pluviosity levels are around 100 mm per month, which is about the same level as most of the year in Rio de Janeiro, and much more than what is observed in Fortaleza. From November through May, showers are frequent in Manaus.
