Climate in ChileEdit This
Chile enjoys a Mediterranean, particularly in the capital city, Santiago. The Atacama Desert found on Chile's north naturally has dry and arid conditions. As one goes farther south of Chile, climate gets much colder. Note that Chile's seasons are reversed to that of North American cities as Chile lies below the equator.
Winter is during the months of June - August while summer is December - March. Summers in Santiago are usually hot and muggy, as influenced by the tepid ocean waters. Average summer temperatures are 7 to 29 degrees Celsius (45-84F).
Spring and autumn are generally very efficient. Temperatures range from 3 to 23 degrees Celsius (37-73F). Winters are generally smoggy and cold although there are a lot of things to keep people occupied. The winds pick up very high speeds at night.
