It's notable that the territory does not have climate variation among different cities due to its compact size.

While the chill in the air is perceptible, particularly in the evenings and nights, it is not severe or discomforting.

In terms of precipitation, January follows closely behind December, the rainiest month. However, the rainfall is less intense than in December, averaging 120mm (4.72").
