General characteristic of monsoon in Sierra Leone is discussed in this paper. The months July, August, September may be considered as monsoon months in Sierra Leone, Most of the rain in this country occurs in these three months. Rainfall data for the period 1954 to 1973 were analysed. It was found that rainfall gradually decreases from west to east and from south to north. Though the rainfall increases in monsoon, there is considerable reduction in the thunderstorm activity. The diurnal variation of rainfall indicates, that the rainfall is maximum in early morning and minimum in the evening. A comparison of rainfall characteristic has been made with those over west.
