Analysts of rainfall over Ghana have traditionally concerned themselves with the attempts to explain the rainfall anomaly along the coast of the country in terms of the nature of the coast, and some upwellings of cold waters off coast of Accra. Rarely is the problem percieved as a meteorological process that causes the anomaly. Examined in this paper are the monthly and annual rainfall distribution along the coast of Ghana. Also examined are the weather and climatic mechanisms, and the effect of the sea and the coast on the rainfall distribution over the eintire coast. The results show that the rainfall anomaly over Ghana's coastal region is due mainly to meteorological factors
