Zimbabwe experiences two seasons, summer from October to April and winter from May to September. Daytime temperatures can reach 30°C (86°F) during the summer while nighttime temperatures can drop to around 14-16°C (57.2-60.8°F). However, the weather is considerably warmer all year in low-lying areas like Kariba, Victoria Falls and the Zambezi Valley. Summer days are characterized by sunny mornings with a chance of showers in the afternoon. These showers are the result of a rainy season that runs from November to March.
Winter daytime temperatures usually reach around 20°C (68°F), dropping to as low as 5° C (41°F) at night. Winter days are dry, sunny and cool to warm. Exceptionally cold spells have happened in the past but are not typical.
