Brazil seasons

The climate can change significantly depending on where you’re visiting in terms of temperature. Brazil has two main seasons; The dry season runs from March to November, and the wet season usually falls between December and February, so if you’re heading for Carnival, you’re almost certain to get rained on. Temperatures in the north are almost always warm all-year-round as it’s near the equator, but further to the south, it usually gets cool between June to September, which is considered as Brazil’s winter.
