New Caledonia lies astride the Tropic of Capricorn, between 19� and 23� south latitude.

The climate of the islands is tropical, and rainfall is highly seasonal, brought by trade winds that usually come from the east.

Rainfall averages about 1,500 millimetres (59 in) yearly on the Loyalty Islands, 2,000 millimetres (79 in) at low elevations on eastern Grande Terre, and 2,000-4,000 millimetres (79-157.5 in) at high elevations on the Grande Terre.

The western side of the Grande Terre lies in the rain shadow of the central mountains, and rainfall averages 1,200 millimetres (47 in) per year.

There are two main seasons: a dry season, and a warm and wet season. The dry cooler months are from April to November with daily temperature ranges from 17-27 �C (63-81 �F).

During the wet season (December to March) the temperature can reach 32 �C (90 �F).

The south-east trade winds temper the heat, and evenings are pleasantly cool. The wet season sees the occasional cyclone hitting the islands.
