2 The wind is very directional and that the W-NNW sector predominates for velocities greater than 8m/s (30km/h). However, the wind in coastal areas tends to exhibit a diurnal pattern, with onshore winds during daylight hours changing to offshore at night.

3 The temperature is relatively mild from October to May and hot from June to September.

4 The relative ambient humidity is generally low from October to May and generally high from June to September.

5 Under certain climatic conditions, considerable condensation may take place.

6 A considerable amount of salt is contained in the atmosphere which together with the relatively high ambient humidity, can produce sever corrosion problems.

7 Distribution and occurrence of rainfall events are very erratic. Rainfall events are generally of a high intensity with a short duration and usually occur between December and March.

8 The prevailing wind directions are from the north and west.
