It is summer all year-round in Uganda. The country straddles the equator which means there is no winter and no summer months and you can come at any time of the year. Temperatures in most parts of the country vary between 25°C and 30° C (77°F and 86°F) dropping only by about 5° overnight. Traditionally May and November are the wettest months in the country where morning cloud build-ups are followed by torrential rain and spectacular thunder and lightning shows. 99% of Ugandans do not own raincoats because the storms are usually of short duration.
