Weather and Climate In Cusco

Cusco Peru


Cusco is relatively cool. The average annual temperature fluctuates between 10.3 2° C to 13 2° C (between 50.54 2° and 52.34 2° Fahrenheit). There is some uniformity in temperature between summer and winter. Normally it is cold at night and during the early hours of the morning significantly increases the temperature until midday. On sunny days the temperature reaches 20 2° C.

Cusco is influenced by macro-climate of masses of air from South Eastern jungle, Highlands, and even the distant region of Patagonia. Winds coming from the Peruvian -Bolivian Highlands are rather cold and dry, as those who come from the distant region of Patagonia, entering by the South Eastern and generally supose greater scale climatic events.

On the other hand, local winds generated in its valleys and Plains have function to distribute heat and humidity of the day. The winds of the southern forest imply huge masses of air loaded with humidity, which are driven by the trade winds from the East.

The elevation facing Cusco and its proximity to the Equator generate a variety of climates distinguish two well-defined seasons:

  • The wet season, which runs November February or March. The average annual precipitation varies from 600 to 1000 mm.

  • Station dry, February or March to October. During the month of June the temperature falls often up 5 2°-7 2° C (23 2° to 19.4 2° F) and can even reach below zero.
