Often considered as 'summer' in the Cook Islands, the wet season is characterized by higher temperatures, increased humidity, and more frequent rainfall. Rain usually comes in short, heavy bursts, often in the late afternoon or evening. Despite the rain, the temperatures remain warm. This season also coincides with the South Pacific cyclone season, though cyclones are relatively rare.
