Destination Guide: Mendoza
Weather in Mendoza
Mendoza's weather is semi-arid with summer highs of 33°C (91°F) and winter lows of around 3°C (37°F). Yearly precipitation averages 250mm (10 inches) per year making it unlikely that you'll need an umbrella during your visit.
However the altitude and positioning of the Andes mountain range result in a dry Zonda wind, which is caused by polar maritime air and can reach speeds of up to 120 kilometers (75 miles) per hour, especially during the hot Mendoza evenings.
