It has a moderate climate, tempered by its high elevation and tends to be less hot than the rest of Kenya. As the city is near the equator there is little variation between the seasons and generally people talk about wet or dry seasons as opposed to summer, winter, spring or autumn. However, summers, between November and February, are warm and pleasant, with temperatures hovering around the 77°F (25°C) mark. Winter days, between June and August, are mild to cool, with cold evenings when the temperature can drop to 50 °F (10 °C). The rainy season in Nairobi is during late summer and into autumn, when it is often cloudy and damp, but rainfall is seldom very heavy.
