In summer the rains are rare, and typically occur in the form of downpour or thunderstorm.

Winter: December to February is relatively cool and rainy.

Spring: March to May is generally mild and gets nicer as summer comes near. Cool and rainy weather gradually becomes rare while nice, temperate weather becomes more frequent.

Summer: June to August is hot and sunny with temperatures occasionally hitting highs of 95-100 °F.

Autumn: September to November starts off warm with the occasional hot day. Toward the end of fall, cold days become more frequent bringing on the start of winter.
