The climate of Tehran (Iran)
Tehran is located in the northern part of Iran and is the capital of the country. Tehran has a population figure of about 8 million. The city was founded thousands of years ago. However, it became a real city only a few centuries ago. About one fifth of the total population of Iran lives in Tehran and its suburbs. Tehran has a cold steppe climate with hot summers and fairly cool winters. Although really low temperatures are uncommon here you can go skiing during the winter on one of the pistes in the vicinity of the city. Tehran is located at an altitude of about 1,100 meters above sea level. During the winter daytime temperatures usually remain above freezing point. During the night subzero temperatures are not uncommon. Tehran is quite sunny and dry with about 3,065 hours of annual sunshine and 233 millimeters of annual precipitation. Most rain falls from November till April after which precipitation figures rapidly decrease and temperatures rise. In June, July and August temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) can be recorded almost on a daily basis.
