Two-thirds or more of the rain falls between June and September. Veracruz receives about 1650mm of rain annually. From April to October it features temperatures well over 30°C, falling into the teens at night only from December to February. Tuxpan and Tampico, on the north coast, are a bit drier. In the mountainous region inland it can range from 4°C to 15°C in winter.
