The entire country of Kazakhstan is very arid, with the exception being the mountain ranges, east and southeast, where precipitation (in the form of snow) is usually quite heavy.
With that lack of rain (no clouds), beautiful sunny days are the norm. Wide variations in temperatures stretch across the country, where daily highs in summer reach into the low 80s (26°C) in the central and southwest, and mid-70s (21°C) in the south. Winter low temperatures (way below zero) are quite common countrywide.
