Iran Weather

Iran Weather is generally of continental type with warm summers and chilly winters. In fact, the weather conditions of Iran vary between sub-tropical to sub-polar, bringing down the temperature to freezing points in some parts of the country.

Basically, the Iran Weather is dry in nature, receiving scanty rainfalls and little or no precipitations in the months of October to April. Majority of the Iranian mainland though a tableland, the average annual rainfall is poor, usually ranging between 13 cm to 30 cm or even lesser. Only the Caspian Sea surroundings receive sufficient rainfall, from 100 to 150 cm. In fact, the arid desert areas and the regions surrounding the Persian Gulf does not at all receive any showers all through the year.

Weather of Iran during summer becomes unbearable in some parts of the land, obviously the deserts regions. The intensity of heat rises to almost intolerable points, with the average daily temperature exceeding 38° C and above. In places like the Khuzestan plain, high humidity accompanies the summer heat.

The freezing Iran Weather in the winters is pleasant compared to the summer heat, yet unbearable in certain places like Tehran, where the night temperature drops to -3°C (27°F). In the north-western parts and on the mountain summits, snow falls profusely, with a sharp drop in temperature. However, the snowfall occurring on the peaks during winter forms the principal source of water used for irrigating the agricultural lands in early summer and spring.

The 'Fall' season or Spring in Iran is characterized by relatively mild and pleasant weather conditions. This is perhaps, the ideal time when tourism flourishes properly on the land, bringing in lots of money to the national exchequer.
