The data contained in this article refers to the measurements of climatic factors during an entire year in low latitudes regions with warm and humid climates, in Santa Rosa city from Ecuador. Since the geographical location and the importance of cloudiness in these regions, these measurements have focused on the solar radiation flux, cloud cover and sky temperature. The data obtained have been configured in a weather file for energy calculations, which has been used in the research article "Assessment of the reflectivity and emissivity impact on light metal roofs thermal behaviour, in warm and humid climate" [1].

Keywords: Cloudiness; Sky temperature; Solar radiation; Warm-humid climate.
