Although it straddles the Tropic of Capricorn, Botswana experiences extremes in both temperature and weather. In the winter (late May through August), days are normally clear, warm and sunny while nights are cool to cold. Temperatures can range between 27˚C (80.6˚F) and 38˚C (100.4˚F). The summer in Botswana (October to April) is also considered the rainy season with rainfall in the south averaging 15 cm, with 38-51 cm in the east. This is also the time of the highest humidity and the most stifling heat; daytime temperatures of over 40˚C (104˚F) are common.
