Climate of Monolia

Mongolia has an "extreme continental climate," that is long, cold, dry winters (it is below 0C from November to March) and short, slightly wetter summers. Mongolia is high up (the lowest point is over 500 metres above sea level). The southernmost part of Mongolia is the northernmost part of the Gobi Desert and so receives less precipitation. Here is the climate information for Ulaanbaatar, the capital, which is in the north:
