Weather

The climate in Kolonia and the nearby officiall capital Palikir is tropical, with temperatures relatively even at about 80 °F throughout the year during the day and rarely below 70 at night.

The island of Pohnpei where Kolonia and Palikir are located is considered one of the wettest places on Earth, with an average rainfall in excess of 400 inches a year. It is in fact unusual to have a dry day on Pohnpei.

In general, the wet season lasts from July to November, when typhoons can striks the islands as well. The better season for a visit probably is the dry season from December to April.
