Climate

João Pessoa has a tropical climate, specifically a tropical wet and dry climate, with very hot temperatures and high relative humidity throughout the year. Generally speaking, the dry season (from mid-September to early June) is characterised by long stretches of warm wind, sunny weather with unpleasant temperatures throughout the day and night (35°C and 26°C). However, these conditions are slightly relieved when the wet season begins (from mid-June to early September) with highs between 28°C and 30°C and lows around 23°C.

Environment


João Pessoa has approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) of beaches (both residential and virgin) as well as many small, natural islands.

João Pessoa has many green areas distributed among its avenues, parks, and residential neighborhoods, which support its claim as "the second greenest city in the world" with more than 7 square kilometres (2.7 sq mi) of forested land, second only to Paris. It was considered thus in 1992, after a survey of urban centres in various countries carried out by the United Nations (source: Embassy of Brazil in the UK).[5]

João Pessoa is situated in a tropical zone, with regular rain regimen and thus a lush vegetation (tropical rain forest).
