What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Moderate climate with a good amount of sun year -ound. - Aug 2020

Winter runs from about May-August. Mornings and nights get rather chilly and cold, but daytime temps are in the 60s or 70s F. Summer is hotter, but it's not unbearable or really humid like Asia or other African countries we've lived in! We had a horrible drought this past year. - May 2016

Very pleasant; very little rain. Cold winter months are tough because houses typically are not insulated. The only source of heat in our house was underfloor heating in the kitchen and living room - nothing in bedrooms. We cautiously used electric oil heaters and lots of blankets. Summers were awesome. On the hottest days, ceiling fans kept us comfortable. We didn't have A/C in the house, either, but some expat houses have both heating and A/C. - Aug 2015

There are 4 season in Lesotho - this is NOT tropical Africa! Rainy season is October to March (spring/summer), and winter is dry and sunny but quite cold. June/July/August often have lows below freezing and daytime highs in the 40s or 50s F. - Jun 2010

No humidity. It is generally clear sunny skies. Though I hear it gets very cold in winter (the houses are poorly insulated). There are impressive lightning and thunder storms in summer as well as some rain. - Mar 2009
