The climate of Santiago (Chile)
Santiago is the capital of Chile, a long-drawn country in South America. Santiago lies on an altitude of five-hundred meters in a lowland plain between the Chilean coastal mountains and the Andes. Santiago is a big metropolis with more than seven million inhabitants and has, by Chilean standards, a very agreeable Mediterranean climate. During the local summer, which lasts here from December up to and including February, the thermometer rises to 25 to 30 degrees during the daytime, sometimes with peaks to 35 degrees or more. In the winter months (June, July and August) it is on an average approximately thirteen degrees during the daytime and the average night-temperature is just above freezing-point. Night-frost and surely groundfrost may regularly occur. With an average of approximately 320 millimeters of precipitation per year Santiago is rather dry. During the summer months there is almost no rain and the sun shines abundantly.
