Lesotho is a mountainous country, and the weather is influenced by the altitude. The summer months are hot and wet, with the rainy season extending from October to April and most rain falling in afternoon thunderstorms. The high summer temperatures are tempered by altitude in the mountains, where snowfalls are possible all year but particularly in the winter between May and September. Highland winter weather in Lesotho is generally extremely cold but sunny. Even lowland temperatures can drop below freezing during winter.
