downpour on Mechlin Street

A sudden downpour in Monrovia stops pedestrians on Mechlin Street. Monrovia, the capitol city with most rainfall, can exceed five meters in a year, with heaviest rainfalls of nearly a meter accumulating in June and again in July. Reduced sunshine keeps temperatures on the mild side, with temperatures in the mid 20C’s (mid 70F’s). Rain clears the air of haze and smoke, making those days between storms sun-filled and fresh. Humidity is usually high, and feels especially so magnified under a bright sun.
