The 2016 Summer Olympics will begin in just a few weeks on August 5! People all across the globe are growing more excited about seeing national teams compete. This year, the games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While people are looking forward to the games, they may not be concentrating on another crucial element of the Olympics — the weather.
We’ve seen a few golf tournaments in the US Open get delayed this summer due to rainfall. Though we don’t always think about it, the weather plays an instrumental role in the planning and execution of high-profile sports events. So as the Olympics draws near, let’s investigate how conditions are predicted to be in Rio de Janeiro.
Because of its location below the equator, Rio de Janeiro experiences summer between December and March and winter between May and October. Fortunately, Brazil winters aren’t like US winters; the average temperature during the winter in Rio is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius). On average, the coolest month in Rio is August and the hottest month is February. The rainy season takes place between January and April. For more information on the typical Rio weather, click here.
