With Chile covering such a huge range in latitudes, the weather obviously varies quite dramatically between the north and south of the country. As a general rule, the the north of the country is warm and dry year-round, with the climate becoming cooler and wetter the further south you travel.

The summer months of November to March are warm in the capital Santiago, usually hovering around a comfortable 20°C. These are also the driest months with very little rainfall. The winters here are cool, with temperatures rarely dropping below 10°C, the wettest months being March to August.

The far north is arid and hot year-round with temperatures almost constantly in the 20°C. The south by contrast has a fairly steady rainfall all year with temperatures ranging from around 3°C in the winter in Punta Arenas to a maximum of around 13°C in the summer. In the further extremes of the south and at higher altitudes, temperatures frequently hit sub-zero levels.
