The climate of Mendoza (Argentina)
Mendoza is located in the western part of Argentina not far from the border with Chile in the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Mendoza and the surrounding area are also known as Gran Mendoza. It is also the capital of the Mendoza province. At the end of the 19th century the city was largely destroyed by an earthquake. More than 10,000 people lost their lives during this earthquake. High-rise buildings were forbidden in the city for a long time, which is one of the characteristic traits of its cityscape. Nowadays high-rise buildings are no longer forbidden, but not many buildings are built this way.
Mendoza has a moderate climate with warm summers and little rainfall. Winters are short and very mild, subzero temperatures are uncommon. Snow and glazed frost also are uncommon. Most of the rain falls during the summer from October till March. Humidity figures may rise because of this.
