What is the weather like in Chile?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Chile about the weather in Chile, they said...

"The weather in Chile varies greatly depending on the region. In the northern part of the country, the climate is generally dry and hot, while the central and southern regions tend to be more temperate and humid. The coastal areas of Chile experience a mild climate with cool temperatures and plenty of rainfall. In the winter months, temperatures can drop to below freezing in the southern regions, while the northern regions remain relatively warm," explained one expat living in Chile.

" Summers ( December thru March) are fantastic. Not hot enough for air conditioning. a good breeze is all you need. There are no mosquitoes so windows don't need screens. It cools off at night and is fresh in the mornings so a light jacket is always at hand. In winter, the remaining eight months of the year, it is cold and wet. Occasional snow falls in the dead of winter but not enough to accumulate or be a problem. It is about like Seattle or Vancouver. Heating in most homes, and cooking in some, is done with a wood burning slow combustion device, or a combination of firewood and propane / hot water radiators. ," said another expat in Pucon, Chile.
