Approximately 75% of the average annual rainfall of 1,550mm occurs between June and September. Temperatures do not change significantly throughout the year, however there is a huge variation between daytime and night-time temperatures – sometimes described as “summer every day, winter every night.” The coldest months are October – December. Daytime temperatures range from 11°C to 18°C (52°F to 64°F) although wind and strong sunlight can affect this, while night-time temperatures range from -2°C to -10°C (28°F to 14°F). From November to March, skies are clear and the sun is strong, although dust abounds. A short rainy season falls somewhere between February and March when you are likely to encounter a short period of rain every day.
