dry for large parts of the year, due to hot winds
blowing from the Australian continent. Most rain
falls during the months from November to March.
Between 82% & 94% of all rain falls during
the west monsoon, with little or no rain falling
for the months of August to October. The mean
annual rainfall for Savu Island is 1019 mm.
During the dry season, most of the islands'
streams dry up, so the islanders depend on wells
for their water supply.
