Weather

Iran has Mediterranean climate characterized by long, hot, dry summers and short, cool winters. The climate is influenced by Iran's location between the subtropical aridity of the Arabian Desert areas and the subtropical humidity of the eastern Mediterranean area. In the northwest, winters are cold with heavy snowfall and subfreezing temperatures during December and January. Spring and fall are relatively mild, while summers are dry and hot. January is the coldest month, with temperatures from 5°C to 10°C, and June is the hottest month at 20°C to 30°C or more.

 In most of the areas, summers are warm to hot with virtually continuous sunshine, but high humidity on the Northern and southern coastal areas of the Caspian Sea and Persian Gulf, respectively. About 70 percent of the average rainfall in the country falls between November and March; June through August are often rainless. Rainfall varies from season to season and from year to year. A small area along the Caspian coast has a very different climate, here rainfall is heaviest from late summer to mid winter but falls in general throughout the year.
