Average Aitutaki Weather in July

Daytime air temperatures in July hover around 81°F ( 27°C), usually falling to 72°F (22°C) in the night.  July extremes of late have ranged from a max of 99°F (37°C) to a min of 60°F (16°C).  Humidity will hover around 78% until a front rolls in and drives it up.

Water temperatures in the main lagoon will be very similar to air temperatures, averaging 79°F ( 26°C) with more extreme temperature fluctuation in the shallower shoals near mainland beaches.

We can expect to see at least some light drizzle every third day or so in July with the monthly rainfall total hovering around 79 mm (3 inches).  Wind speeds will likely average 20 kph (12 mph) and peak as high as 50 kph (31 mph) if a storm blows through.
