Afghanistan is known for hot summers and very cold winters, especially in the higher reaches of the northeastern mountains, where blizzards with heavy snow are common.
Throughout the year the southwestern areas of the country are quite dry, while the valleys to the east and southeast of Kabul are more humid.
Summer high temperatures (June - August) reach the low 90s (32°C) in the central and southern regions. Winter low temperatures hover near freezing, with much colder conditions in the higher elevations.
