Iran weather

Iran is situated in the global arid zone and the Plateau of Iran enjoys a relatively dry climate. Alborz and Zagross mountain chains trap the humidity and air currents of the Caspian Sea and the Mediterranean climate preventing them from penetration to the inner parts. Iran, due to its location between 25 and 40 degrees latitude as well as its mountains, Iran enjoys considerably variable climates.The average annual temperature increases from the northwest to the southeast throughout the country and varies from 10°C in Azarbaijan to 2530°C in the south and southeast in the same season.

The northern and southern shores of Iran have diverse climatic conditions compared with the central, and mountainous regions. For example, the average annual temperature of Bandar Abbas in southern Iran is 18.5° C in January. Difference of average annual rainfall is also very high in different parts of the country varying from 2,000 mm. in Guilan to less than .100 mm. in the central parts óf Iran. Average annual precipitation in Iran is about 275 mm.
In January and February, there are three climatic zones in Iran. Shores of the Caspian Sea have mild and relatively cold weather, central parts have typical winter weather, and southern parts enjoy moderate and pleasant weather. Most regions of Iran enjoy pleasant weather in the spring, especially in April. However, the weather in southern regions of Iran grows very hot unexpectedly as early as March.
The climatic conditions of the country become more diverse in the summer. Due to high humidity, the weather at the Caspian Sea coast is hot during the day, but it is pleasant at night. In the southern coastlines of Iran, days are very hot and nights are relatively warm with high humidity, which can be intolerable by non-natives. It is therefore recommended that tourists choose their travel destinations while considering the weather conditions.
The best season for travelling to Iran is spring. However, in every season there are provinces, which are more favorable than others from climatic point of view.The cities of Shiraz, Isfahan, Mashhad, Tehran and Tabriz, which are the main tourism centers of Iran, enjoy different climates. Shiraz, with four months of warmth, ranks first and Tabriz, with only one month of warmth, ranks last. Azarbaijan, Kurdistan, Hamedan and Khorassan provinces are known as cool places in the summer.
In general, the entire northern part of the country, especially the northern slopes of Alborz 'Mountains, like Noor Valley, Kelardasht, Katalem, as well as provinces such as Azarbaijan and Khorassan and central regions of the Zagross Mountains - between Tooyserkan and Golpayegan - are very popular destinations for weekends and holidays by domestic as well as foreign tourists in the summer.
Tourists may use the southern regions of Iran 5-6 months of the year, especially in winters. Tourists, who visit the southern coasts of Iran in winter, can enjoy very pleasant weather; while at the same time the cities of Isfahan and Fars provinces are rainy and snowy. In general, in the summer, the weather in most parts of the "country is" warm but not intolerable.Spring and autumn are a suitable time for touring all arolind the country. Hotels are usually booked up during national holidays-for Nowrooz (Iranian New Year starting March 21).
