Entering the second month of the year, Oshakati's climate contrasts slightly with that of January.

This warm weather month marks the last of the substantial rain, as the rain season nears its end. As temperatures and humidity witness a subtle decline compared to January, it sets a gradual transition towards more moderate weather conditions that characterize the upcoming month of March. Of note, the sun plays a dominant role, facilitating ample daylight that brightens life in this part of Namibia.
