WEATHER AND CLIMATE IN IRAN
Iran has a variable climate. 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. In the south, winters are mild and the summers are very hot,
having average daily temperatures in July exceeding 38° C. On the
Khuzestan plain, summer heat is accompanied by high humidity.
In general, Iran has an arid climate in which most of
the relatively scant annual precipitation falls from October through April.
In most of the country, yearly precipitation averages 25 centimeters or
less. The major exceptions are the higher mountain valleys of the Zagros
and the Caspian coastal plain, where precipitation averages at least 50
centimeters annually. In the western part of the Caspian, rainfall exceeds
100 centimeters annually and is distributed relatively evenly throughout
the year. This contrasts with some basins of the Central Plateau that
receive ten centimeters or less of precipitation annually.
