The contrast in the physical environment in Uzbekistan is the major cause of extreme diversity in Uzbekistan weather. The country has flat deserts in the south and lofty mountain peaks in the north about 4,500 meters above the sea level.
The climate of Uzbekistan is extreme continental. The country is basically dry and experiences sporadic rainfall. Precipitation is relatively scanty. Rainfall occurs mostly in winters and spring, during the months of March and April. The average annual rainfall of the country is only 100 to 200 millimeters. Humidity is relatively low, because of the dry Uzbekistan climate. The scorching summers are generally marked by a period of drought. The mercury rises to 45 degrees centigrade in the summers; sometimes the temperature rises beyond that. The Qyzylqum desert of Uzbekistan is supposed to be one of the most arid regions in the country. The winters in Uzbekistan see the mercury dipping to as low as minus 35 degrees centigrade. Snowfall is common from December through February, but the snow melts within a couple of days.
Weather in Uzbekistan is relatively moderate during the spring and the autumn. These two seasons are the best time to visit and explore Uzbekistan.
