Cape Verde's climate is milder than that of the African mainland; because the island is surrounded by the sea, temperatures are generally moderate.

Average daily high temperatures range from 25 �C (77 �F) in January to 29 �C (84.2 �F) in September. Cape Verde is part of the Sahelian arid belt, with nothing like the rainfall levels of nearby West Africa.

It does rain irregularly between August and October, with frequent brief-but-heavy downpours.

A desert is usually defined as terrain which receives less than 250 mm (9.8 in) of annual rainfall.

Cape Verde's total (261 mm/10.3 in) is slightly above this criterion, which makes the area climate semi-desert.

Hurricanes that form near the Cape Verde Islands are sometimes referred to as Cape Verde-type hurricanes.

These hurricanes can become very intense as they cross warm Atlantic waters.
