The climate in Mali
Mali is one of the largest and poorest countries in Africa. The north of the country lies in the Sahara. Here it is dry and extremely hot, sometimes up to 50 °C. Central Mali is located in the Sahel region where it is also hot, but less extreme. The South has a savannah climate and the extreme south-west even a tropical climate. This means that there is precipitation here, especially from June to late September. From October to March it is 'winter' in Mali. That means that in the south it is only 30 °C during the day. Unfortunately, during this period the Harmattan often blows. This is a desert wind that brings public life to a standstill.
