OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Brasilia and the Cerrado
1,172m above sea level in the remote heartland of Brazil, the country’s futuristic capital offers brutalist architecture, a modernist Cathedral and wind-funnelled avenues. Brasilia has two well defined seasons: dry (May – September) and wet (October to February) and a transitional season March - April. Temperatures hover in the mid to late 20°Cs most of the year, with the hottest and sunniest months July - August. Weekends and the holiday season of July and January - February are quiet in terms of visitors.
The savannah grasslands and dry forests of the Cerrado are warm and temperate, with a significant amount of rainfall throughout the year. January is the warmest month at 22°C, while June has the lowest average temperature at 15°C. The best time to visit for wildlife spotting is February - November, with pleasant temperatures and limited rainfall.
