Regional conditions do vary. For example, summers are more humid on the coast while winters in the mountainous region are colder and include the occasional snowfall. Spring and autumn see sporadic hot winds which cause temperatures to skyrocket, but for the most part are extremely pleasant, with temperatures in the 60’s-70’s.
