In Buenos Aires, when it rains you are going to get wet.
Even the Hermanas can't resist a little fun in the rain.
In Buenos Aires the weather is usually mild, with the winter lows in the mid 20's and summer highs up to 100 degrees. Humidity is a big factor and makes these temperatures seem worse than they really are especially if you're used to a dry climate. Winter:
The winter months are from May - September. It rains considerably during the winter, and flooding is quite common in some areas. I can remember when we received so much rain that the Subway system in the Capital District was closed because it was inundated with water. The rain, combined with many dirt roads, can become quite messy, and often slippery. In some areas where sewage drainage is open, films of thick black sludge can cover the road.
Summer arrives in November, and temperatures usually peak in late January. During the summer you learn why there is a sun on the Argentine flag. Very few places have air conditioning, but most of the missionary apartments have oscillating fans. If you are really lucky, your apartment might have a ceiling fan. The church buildings do not have air conditioning as is common in the United States, with the exception of the chapel in Caballito, and the Buenos Aires Temple. The churches are equipped with ceiling fans, Argentine air conditioning.
