The city experiences a warm and tropical climate throughout the year, with two primary seasons: wet season (November to April) and dry season (May to October). During the wet season, Suva receives abundant rainfall, resulting in high humidity levels. In contrast, the dry season brings drier and cooler conditions.
Located on the southeastern coast of the main island, Viti Levu, Suva is surrounded by lush mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The landscape has a significant impact on the atmospheric pressure in the area. The mountains act as barriers, causing the air to rise and cool, leading to condensation and cloud formation. This process often results in rainfall and cloudier conditions. The nearby ocean also influences the weather, providing moisture that contributes to the region's high humidity levels.
