The average temperature is a very complex issue since it depends on numerous factors. Fortunately, complete and even compiled weather data can be obtained freely on database sites such as Weatherbase . There is, for example, the World Bank , a reputable organization that contains a multitude of databases as well – a history of inclusive temperatures. Based on these two sources, check out the 10 countries with the highest temperature averages in the world. Source: animalerts.com
10. GHANA – AVERAGE ANNUAL TEMPERATURE 26.98 ° C
One of the many hot countries in West Africa, Ghana is tenth in this selection of the 10 countries with the highest temperature averages in the world. It is no wonder that the tropical climate impacts the dry and rainy seasons in this country, and that average monthly temperatures do not drop below 25 ° C. It is basically positioned at the central point of the planet, being in longitude between 4 ° to the west and 2 ° to the east, and only 4 ° to the north of the Equator.
9. BENIN – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 27.18 ° C
Another open country towards the Gulf of Guinea, Benin lies entirely in the north of the Tropic. If it is desired to cool off in Benin, try the northern part of the country. Avoid the winter period between December and March, however, because it is the season when Harmattan, dry wind from the Sahara tends to cause a lot of problems for the local population.
8. SUDAN – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 27.36 ° C
The deserts of Nubia and Bayuda have a large percentage of the traditionally warm territory of Sudan. Since parts of the south of the country are close to the equator, it is easy to see how vast a territory can remain hot all year round.
7. GAMBIA – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 27.39 ° C
The climate is tropical and it is difficult to be there during the hot and rainy season, which runs from June to November. Until May, temperatures are generally lower for a bit of stretch, but they warm up in a hurry during the mentioned month. One of the poorest countries in the world , Gambia would have been a landlocked country had it not been for the Atlantic Ocean. The country cut by Senegal from west to east, but still remains one of the smallest countries of the continent in Africa.
6. NIGER – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 27.57 ° C
The Sahara desert actually takes over 80% of the area of the country. The desert, however, does not extend to the south, but it is where the tropical heat tends to balance things, with Niger being sixth in this selection of the 10 countries with the highest temperature averages in the world.
5. MAURITANIA – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 27.6 ° C
Another Saharan country in West Africa, Mauritania has similar temperature fluctuations as its eastern neighbor, Niger. While it has a strip of the Atlantic Ocean, 90% of Mauritania is still a desert. It is the reason the temperatures between May and September do not fall below 30 ° C, and unlike in Niger, does not fall below 20 ° C as well. Mauritania is fifth in this selection of the 10 countries with the highest temperature averages in the world.
4. SENEGAL – AVERAGE ANNUAL TEMPERATURE 27.64 ° C
Positioned south of Mauritania, Senegal does not follow through the Sahara desert, but its northern parts come in contact with Sahel, which is a transition zone between the desert and savannah. This is why Senegal exhibit more balanced, monthly combined temperatures, but overall, the annual average is still very hot. Whether it is the tropical heat of the south, the heat of the northern desert or dry, semi-arid climate of the interior, Senegal remains predominantly dry, sunny and above all a warm country.
3. DJIBOUTI – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 28.07 ° C
Found in the Horn of Africa, Djibouti divides the Eritrean and Somali coasts and controls the western side of Bab-el-Mandeb; the south entrance to the Red Sea. And it has a small territory that makes things quite simple, of sensible climate. The coldest month is December with the average temperature of 23.67 ° C, while the warmest month is July, with an average temperature of 32.38 ° C.
2. BURKINA FASO – ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 28.19 ° C
Back to West Africa now. Burkina Faso is north of Ghana and Benin, and west of Niger. Temperatures here do not fall below 25 ° C, but differences can be noticed between the northern and southern parts of the country. In fact, Burkina Faso can be divided into 3 climatic regions, Sahel, Sudan-Sahel, and Sudan-Guinea, from north to south respectively.
1. MALI – AVERAGE ANNUAL TEMPERATURE AVERAGE 28.25 ° C
With average monthly temperatures reaching as high as 33.38 ° C in June, Mali is the leading position in this selection of the 10 countries with the highest temperature averages in the world. It is not surprising, indeed, since Mali is bordered by no less than 4 countries that make up this selection, Niger, Mauritania, Senegal and Burkina Faso. Most of the country is from the Sahara, but the large parts still fall under warm, semi-arid climate. The tropical south takes a small chunk too, but the only thing that changes is the precipitation. Temperatures are still frighteningly high all year round, with the lowest December average of 21.65 ° C.
