As such, its climate is classified as being sub-tropical.

A sub-tropical climate is hot and slightly humid, but not quite as dramatically so as a tropical zone. Winters are generally cool to cold, but never present snow or frost. In Port Elizabeth, rainfall occurs all year round, but is slightly heavier and more frequent during the winter months.
