The rains are plentiful, but the rainfall pattern in the mainland is the opposite to that of the islands.
In the continental part, known as Rio Muni, precipitation is above 2,000 millimetres (80 inches) per year; the rains occur from September to May, while there's a dry season from June to August; in the north (see Bata) the rains decrease slightly from December to February, while in the south (see Cogo) it rains a lot even in this period. The amount of sunshine is never good, and it is even scarcer in the driest months.

In the winter months, a hot dry wind from the mainland can blow. Here, too, the sky is often cloudy, especially from June to August. Malabo is one of the least sunny capitals in the world, being usually cloudy, and also foggy. It follows that the vegetation is lush.
In Bioko, at no great distance from Malabo, there is the highest peak of Equatorial Guinea, Pico Basilé, 3,011 metres (9,879 feet) high. The slopes of the volcano are very rainy, but they protect the capital, located on the north coast of the island, in the period from July to October, when it rains more than in the capital also in the eastern and southern coasts of the island.
In southern island of Annobón, located southwest of the state of São Tomé and Príncipe, the rainfall pattern is similar to that of the mainland, with a dry season from June to September. Here, too, the sky is often cloudy.
