The Weather in Ethiopia
Lying between the Equator and the Tropic of cancer, Ethiopia's seasons are reversed: spring here begins in September; summer runs from January to the middle of March. The first rainy season lasts from February to April; a more substantial rainy season lasts from June to September. The average rainfall between June and August is 39 inches, while the northeast and eastern plains receive less than 19 inches, often experiencing drought. The average rainfall in Addis Ababa is 49 inches.
The major portion of the country consists of a high plateau, which gives Ethiopia its mild, sunny climate. There are months of guaranteed sunshine, yet the altitude keeps the climate pleasant with upland temperatures rarely rising above 77 degrees Fahrenheit nor falling below 45 degrees. In Addis, the average temperature remains a consistent 59 Degrees throughout the year.
