Climate
The climate is semiarid in the western lowland areas, where rainfall is less than 20 inches a year, and wetter and cooler in the central highlands, which receive an average 40 inches of rain annually. Temperatures range from an average 63F in the highlands to 86F in the lowlands. There is a hot desert strip along the Red Sea coastline, and some of the highest temperatures on Earth--often topping 122F--have been recorded in the southeastern Danakil Depression.
