Botswana is semi-arid, due to the short rain season. However, the relatively high altitude of the country and its continental situation gives it a subtropical climate.

The country is remote from moisture-laden air flows for most of the year.

The dry season lasts from April to October in the south and to November in the north where, however, rainfall totals are higher.

The south of the country is most exposed to cold winds during the winter period (early May to late August) when average temperatures are around 14 �C (57.2 �F).

The whole country has hot summers with average temperatures around 26 �C (78.8 �F).

Sunshine totals are high all year round although winter is the sunniest period.

The whole country is windy and dusty during the dry season.
