The climate of Shiraz (Iran)
Shiraz is located in the southern part of Iran in the Faris province at the foot of the Zagros mountain range. The Rudkhaneye Khoshk River flows along the entire northeastern side of the city. This river eventually flows into Lake Maharloo. During large parts of the year this river is dry. Shiraz is an old city. The first signs of civilization date back to 2,000 BC. Nowadays the city is an important trading center in the southern part of Iran. Besides a large oil refinery the city produces large amounts of cement and sugar. The city also plays an important role in the electronics industry of the country. The city has always been known for its carpets and the Shirazi wine. Shiraz has a warm steppe climate influenced by its location at a high altitude in the Zagros mountain range. Summers are warm. However average temperatures remain below 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). During the summer hardly any rain can be expected. Winters are cold. However, subzero temperatures do not occur as often as you would expect in a city located at this altitude. Almost all precipitation falls during the winter. During the coldest days precipitation falls in the form of snow.
