However, if it rains, the rain falls mostly in the months from June to September.

The most pleasant temperatures prevail in the period from November to the beginning of February. During these European winter months it is springlike warm in Asmara during the day and freezing temperatures at night.

In the western lowlands the months April to June are the hottest with over 40°C and December with about 12°C the coolest. During this time strong temperature differences between day and night are usually measured.
