The coolest time of the year, yet with daytime temperatures of at least 31 °C (88 °F), comes during the rainy season between December and March. Nighttime temperatures are subject to greater fluctuations, which reflect the continental steppe climate. During the driest months, the starry night sky complicates heat storage.

During the rainy season there are daily tropical cloudbursts and thunderstorms, causing the amount of precipitation to reach up to 330 mm (13 in) at the season’s peak in January. During the dry months from April to September, however, very little or no precipitation is expected.
