Description:

Namibia's Coast: Ocean Riches and Desert Treasures - Weather and Water.

Summary / Notes:

For most of the year the weather along the coast of Namibia is characterised by relatively cool temperatures, strong onshore winds and frequent grey skies. Although rainfall is extremely rare, fog blankets the coast in a shawl of moist air on about arnthird of the days each year. In winter, winds from the interior bring a cascade of heat and sand (and sometimes swarms of flies) as they blow over the land out to sea.
