The climate of Kandahar (Afghanistan)
Kandahar is located in the southern part of Afghanistan in the Kandahar province of which it also is the capital. The city has a bloody history and was conquered by the Arabs, Turks, Mongolians, Indians, Brits, Russians and the Taliban over the years. Nowadays it is one of the largest cities in Afghanistan. In the old city center the Ahmad Ahah Durrani mausoleum can be admired. In front of it is a small mosque containing one of the holiest relics of Islam. The city has its own airport. Before the airport was destroyed at the beginning of this century it was one of the largest airports in Asia.
Kandahar has a warm steppe climate characterized by cold and wet winters and hot and dry summers. During the summer it may get extremely hot here with temperatures around 50 degrees Celsius. During the coldest part of the winter subzero temperatures are not uncommon. The small amount of rain that falls here usually falls during the winter.
