The summers fall between the months of November and February and the winters fall between the months of May and August. The country has two major rainfall seasons. One comes between December and April and the other between October and December.

The central region of Tanzania is the Singida and Dodoma regions. These areas are semi arid and have hot and dry climate. The rainfall here is less than 500 mm annually. As against this, the Northeast and Southwest regions are mountainous areas and have a much cooler climate. Mount Kilimanjaro is located in this region which is the highest mountain of African continent. The highest parts of the mountainous areas can have freezing temperatures all thought out the year, especially at nights. In the peak winter months of June and July, the temperatures at night can fall below 15 degree Celsius.
