What Is the Wettest Country in Africa

What Is the Wettest Country in Africa

Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Equatorial Guinea are the wettest countries in Africa


Sierra LeoneLiberia, and Equatorial Guinea are the wettest countries in Africa according to The World Bank weather, water, and climate statistics. Africa has the world’s least developed weather, water, and climate observation network, with half of its surface weather stations not reporting accurate data.



Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone receives 2,526mm of precipitation per year. The climate is tropical hot, humid; summer rainy season May to December and winter dry season December to April. Rainfall along the coast can reach 495 cm (195 inches) a year, making it one of the wettest places along coastal, western Africa. Population clusters are found in the lower elevations of the south and west; the northern third of the country is less populated.


Liberia 

Liberia receives 2,391mm of precipitation per year. The climate is tropical hot, humid; dry winters with hot days and cool to cold nights; wet, cloudy summers with frequent heavy showers. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, the coastline is characterized by lagoons, mangrove swamps, and river-deposited sandbars; the inland grassy plateau supports limited agriculture. More than half of the population lives in urban areas, with approximately one-third living within 50 miles, 80 km radius of the capital, Monrovia.


Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea receives 2,156mm of precipitation per year and has violent windstorms and flash floods. No part of the Equator passes through Equatorial Guinea; the mainland part of the country is located just north of the Equator. Despite Equatorial Guinea is the third wettest country in Africa and one of the richest African oil countries, the tap water is non-potable water that is water that is not of drinking quality.

Don't throw away the old bucket until you know whether the new one holds water.
