Climate of Quito

Quito's climate is often described as eternal spring, meaning balmy days between 8-21° C, warm direct sunlight cooled by light steady breezes, painfully picturesque clouds that usually gather for a short afternoon shower, all capped by a cool--but not cold--darkness. The Quiteño saying, that the city experiences all four seasons in a single day, isn't far off the mark.

Dry season in the capital lasts June-Sept., with July and August receiving the least precipitation. A shortened dry season runs Dec.-Jan. More rain falls Feb.-March and Oct.-Nov., with at least half of April seeing a torrential downpour taking up most of the afternoon.
