Climate

Because of its subtropical location and flat topography, Larkano experiences a pleasant climate during winter and extreme heat during the summer.  Summer season starts in March when abrupt changes in temperature are observed.  These keep on rising and remain high until October.  May, June, and July are the hottest months of the year while August and September are characterised by somehow lower temperatures and higher humidity (monsoon period).  The average mean maximum and minimum temperatures during the summer are 43oC and 33oC, respectively.  The winter season, which is mild, extends from November to February.  During the winter average mean maximum and minimum temperatures are 21oC and 11oC, respectively.  Other striking features of the area climate include low and unpredictable rainfall (about 86 mm per year) and low humidity (between 40% to 60%).
