Hot and dry - desert. - Jan 2016

Weather is dry, but very good with 300+ days of sunshine a year. - Jun 2015

The weather pattern is dry-and-hot, dry-and-REALLY-hot, about two afternoons of rain, and dry-and-coolish.

Mostly dry. There is a rainy season but it is not constant. Usually it rains hard then dries up quickly. Summer is hot (in the 40s C./100s F.) and winter gets down to freezing overnight. Keep in mind Windhoek is south of the equator so seasons are opposite from northern hemisphere. - Jan 2013

Warm/hot most of the year. Winter is about 75 during the day but gets below freezing at night. Rainy season is Dec-Mar, but still hot. Perfect weather!!!! The sun shines every day. - Jul 2012
