Cook Islands Weather
Despite the Cook Islands offering a pleasantly warm climate all year, seasons can be split into summer months: November to April, and winter months: May to October.
The summer rainy season begins in December and lasts until April. Days are hot and humid with rain in the afternoons and an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. November to March is known as hurricane/cyclone season, however, extreme storms are rare.
The winter months are also known as the dry season. July and August are considered the coldest months with temperatures dropping to around 19 degrees Celsius at nighttime. The lowest winter temperature ever recorded in the Cook Islands was 9 degrees Celsius back in 1965.
Although there are winter and summer seasons in the Cook Islands, the water temperature is pleasant all year long.
