May can be hot. The temperature continues to increase to an average between 19 °C (66.2 °F) and 27 °C (80.6 °F). During the day, the sunshine is much stronger than in April, so you may feel hot after noon. Sometimes it rains a lot, and may rain heavily with thunder and lightning. Bring an umbrella and add one more layer of clothing when it is raining.
A light jacket or a sweater is adequate for comfort during this month.
