Extremes in temperature are the norm here. A subtropical dry climate with scanty rainfall occurs only in winter. The rest of the year sees clear skies and unbearable heat at the height of summer. Sandstorms cannot be ruled out. Temperatures range from 1 degree C to 48 degrees C in different seasons, averaging off to 24 degrees C in the early parts of the year. It has been known to touch 41 degrees C in the latter half though.
