The climate in Mongolia
The climate of Mongolia is characterised by extremes. Firstly, the extreme differences between summer and winter. In winter the mercury can drop to-50 °C, and in summer, with the same ease it can in the southern Gobi desert be 40 °C. The mountainous central area and north with an average summer temperature of 20-25 °C is a pleasant place to be. Extreme differences also exist between day and night. The minimum and maximum in 24 hours often differ by 15 to 20 degrees. Winters are bone dry, most precipitation falls in the summer which doesn’t amount to much.
