- June, July & August – Again, winter clothing is needed for almost any activity scheduled for mornings when it commonly drops below freezing (average temperature of just 2°C/35°F ). Afternoons will be mild with clear skies, and temperatures of around 23°C/74°F.
- September – Temperatures increase to an average of 29°C/84°F in the afternoon. Mornings are still cold, but more tolerable at an average of 7°C/44°F.
Low humidity (although it’s the wet season) and high temperatures are characteristic of the summer season. Typical daytime temperatures range from a steady 35°C/95°F to a peak of 45°C/113°F or more. Occasional rain breaks the heat and usually comes in the form of dramatic storms, often followed by dust storms.
- October & November – The first rains cleanse the haze from the sky. Rainfall is still low and usually only occurs in the afternoon. Temperatures are between 12°C/53°F in the morning and 32°C/90°F in the afternoon.
- December, January & February – These are the hottest months. Temperatures average around 35°C/95°F, but peak temperatures can reach much higher. Early mornings are lovely with temperatures around 19°C/66°F. Occasional showers clear the air and lower the heat.
- March & April – With average daytime temperatures of 31°C/88°F and nights of 13°C/55°F, the summer heat begins to wane. Rains still occur occasionally but by the end of April it is mostly dry.
