Uruguay is the only Latin American country not situated within the tropics, and its location provides a sunny and warm temperate climate, with rain (mostly brief showers) distributed evenly throughout the year.
Temperatures rarely reach below 40°F (4°C) and daily high averages in winter approach 60°F (16°C). In summer, daily high averages reach into the mid 70s.
Note that seasons in Uruguay are just the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere.
