The climate in Iraq is mostly desert, with mild and cool winters and dry, hot summers. Iraq has two climatic provinces: the hot lowlands, including the plains and deserts; and the damper northeast, where there are cooler temperatures.
The northern mountainous regions have cold winters with occasional heavy snows, sometimes causing extensive flooding.
In the lowlands there are two seasons, summer and winter, with short transitional periods between them.
Summer, clear skies, extremely high temperatures, and low relative humidity.
Winter Temperatures are generally mild, although extremes of hot and cold, including frosts, can occur.
