General Information: The Weather
The summer rainfall can be highly impressive! However, there are many sunny and hot days, with temperatures frequently rising to 35° Celsius (95° Fahrenheit). In winter it is generally warm and sunny during the day, although temperatures do tend to plummet to freezing at night. Since there is little or no rain in winter the vegetation does become very brown and dry – a complete contrast to the lushness of summer. Throughout the year the night skies are usually clear and superb for star-gazing.
