Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall.
For me, growing up in Colorado, the four seasons have meaning and are distinct. But in Panama, “Summer” feels pretty much like “Winter.” Even though Panamanians always complain in “Summer” how hot it is, there really isn’t much of a difference in temperature. We’re now back in “Winter:” the kids are back in school and Panamanians are wearing sweaters (ok, not really). But, the past few days have brought daily rain, which has prompted me to dig into the annual Panama weather trends. I found the graph below pretty clearly illustrates how the temperature pretty much is always in the 80’s and the “Dry Season” of December to April really is a lot dryer than the rest of the year.
