central plains region, haboobs, Dust storms, southern Sudan, tropical climate

Sudan has a tropical climate. Seasonal variations are most sharply defined in the desert zones, where winter temperatures as low as 4C (40F) are common, particularly after sunset. Summer temperatures often exceed 40C (110F) in the desert zones, and rainfall is negligible. Dust storms, called haboobs, frequently occur. High temperatures also prevail to the south throughout the central plains region, but the humidity is generally low. In the vicinity of Khartoum the average annual temperature is about 27C (about 80F); and annual rainfall, most of which occurs between mid-June and September, is about 250 mm (about 10 in). Equatorial climatic conditions prevail in southern Sudan. In this region the average annual temperature is about 29C (about 85F), annual rainfall is more than 1,000 mm (40 in), and the humidity is excessive.
