JUJUY

WEATHER & CLIMATE

The Mountainrange, which surrounds and crosses the Province of Jujuy, has a direct incidence on the local climate. Thus, it determines climatic variations all through the Province, from the cold and dry large areas in the Puna highlands, to areas with tropical temperatures and heavy rainfalls, alternated by areas with temperate and subtropical climates.

Geographically speaking, the area can be divided into four principal areas: The Valley of Jujuy; The Valley of the Ro San Francisco River; The Humahuaca Gorge, and the Puna Highlands. And these, in turn, can be classified as follows:

TEMPERATE REGION
This region includes the Departments of El Carmen, San Antonio, Dr. Manuel Belgrano, and the Capital of the Province. The very fertile soils make this an area where the main activities are agriculture and cattle breeding. The capital city of San Salvador de Jujuy, located 97 kilometres south of the Tropic of Capricorn, has a subtropical rainfall pattern; i.e.: Rainy (Southern hemisphere) summers and dry winters.

Useful Information of Jujuy
The average rainfall during the months of November through March is 750 mm, which represents 83 % of the annual average. In the summer the city is hot at noon, and during the early afternoons the humidity reaching 70% can make it a quite balmy place.

During the winters, the maximum temperatures hover around 20 C, which makes for comfortable noons and early afternoons. However, nights are cold and temperatures may drop below freezing level. The best season is springtime.

Clothing and Accessories. For the (southern hemisphere) winter and spring you will need warm clothing and headgear. Snowfalls may occur in winter in the areas of Yala and around San Salvador de Jujuy. In August it is common to encounter what is called the Northern Wind - "Viento Norte", which brings higher temperatures and a notable dryness. We suggest you bring cocoa butter and hydrating skin creams. During the months of November through March you should bring light clothing, always allowing for a sweater, camping jacket or windbreaker for the colder nights.

SUBTROPICAL OR WARM REGION
This Region includes the Departments of San Pedro, Ledesma and Santa Brbara, and part of the Valle Grande. Generally the climate is warm with humidity in different degrees. These conditions vary according to the altitude, latitude, locality and exposure.

These mountains form a barrier, which condenses the humid air currents coming from the Atlantic anticyclone, a phenomena which allows for the existence of a thick forest cover. Altitudes vary between 400 and 3,000 metres.
Annual rainfall is between 900 and a 1,000 mm. In some places it may reach 1,300 mm. Rains usually fall in summer and are concentrated across five to six months.

During the coldest months, condensation and the capture of humidity from the clouds covering these forests, help to compensate for the lack of rains during this time.

Average annual mean temperature is 19,5 C with average maximums of 23,7 C and minimum averages of 11,7 C. Relative average humidity is between 70 to 71 %, with extremes between 56 and 83 %.

Clothing and accessories.
During the (southern hemisphere) summer it is important to bring light clothing. Lots of sun blockers, sun hats and insect repellent. You will also need impermeable shoes or boots and several pairs of socks. Raingear and plastic sheets to protect your backpacks or bags. During the (southern hemisphere) winter you will need warmer clothing as well as a warm jacket.

THE HUMAHUACA GORGE AND THE RO GRANDE RIVER BASIN
The Gorge is part of the Ro Grande River basin. Due to its mountainous terrain there are many microclimates, and thus you can find both sun and rain on a 20-kilometre stretch. But generally speaking, it has a dry climate, with a touch of coldness, a desert climate. Most days are cloudless and sunny, and there are very few rainfalls during the dry season.

Average maximum temperatures throughout the year are between 19 C and 23 C. You will experience generally cold night during the rainy season and very cold night during the dry season. During this last season night temperatures can drop below the freezing point. In Huacalera, south of the Humahuaca Gorge, close to the line denoting the Tropic of Capricorn, you will find an allegoric monument pointing towards the zenith.

Clothing and accessories.
We recommend you to always bring warm clothing, especially for the nights.
We also recommend sun hats, sun block and skin hydrating creams. During the (southern hemisphere) winter you should bring warm clothing, warm gloves and muffler as well as windbreakers. However, there are very few very cold days and most days are sunny and warm.

THE JUJUY HIGHLANDS OR PUNA
It occupies and extensive area of the Province and includes the Departments of Cochinoca, Yavi, Santa Catalina, Rinconada and Susques. In this area the climate is dry and cold, with b winds throughout the year.

In La Quiaca, the temperature drops to - 15 C or even - 20 C below zero during the months of June to October; from November through April, minimum temperatures oscillate between - 2 C and - 5 C below zero, while the maximum average is 18 C, with peaks reaching up to 30 C.

Clothing and accessories.
You will need to bring warm clothing throughout the year. You will also need sun blockers, sunglasses and moisturizing creams for dry skin. We also recommend to bring resistant footgear such as hiking boots or similar. During the (southern hemisphere) winter months it is a good idea to bring down jackets, facemasks and warm gloves to protect against the wind.

During the time you spend in the Puna highland, we recommend you to bring a few coca leaves to use in a hot infusion to drink.
