Weather in Cusco
Weather in other cities
Cusco territories are under the influence of macro-climate of large air masses from the south eastern jungle, the highlands and even the distant region of Patagonia. The winds of the southern forest involve huge masses of humid air, which are driven by winds from the east.
The winds coming from the Peruvian Altiplano of Bolivia are rather cold and dry, like those from Patagonia and generally involve larger-scale events. They enter through the south east.
On the other hand, the local winds that are generated in the valleys and plains of Cusco have the function of distributing heat and humidity throughout the day.
Generally there are two climatic seasons: the rainy season from November to March and the dry spell from April to October.
