South America is located in the southern hemisphere. Those countries to the south of the continent have four distinct seasons. The countries in the north of the continent have more constant high temperatures and high rainfall throughout the year.
In the southern part of the continent, winter (June to August) is the coldest part of the year and sees temperatures fall below freezing. It’s the best time to visit South America’s number one attraction – Machu Picchu.
In general, the weather in South America is hot and humid. Countries in the Amazon baisn like Northern Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela have are dominated by rainforest and have consistent hot and humid weather year-round with high rainfall.
The wet season in South America extends from January through March, which also brings the warmest temperatures to most regions in the area, especially along the coast. The rest of the year is relatively dry, but brings cooler temperatures – and some precipitation – in some areas.
As a general rule however, the seasons run as follows: Summer (December to February), Autumn (March to May), Winter (June to August) and Spring (September to November).
It is warm all year round. There is a very large daily range of temperate, up to 30 degrees celsius. Central Chile has a mediterranean type climate with long, hot summers and cool, wet winters. The best seasons are spring, September-November and fall, March-May.
The coldest part of the continent is in the extreme southern tip, in the area called Tierra del Fuego; in the coldest month of the year, which is July, it is as cold as 0°C (32°F) there. The highest temperature of the continent is reached in a small area of northern Argentina, and is about 42°C (108°F).
Seasons split into cool and dry (June-November) and warm and wet (December-June).
As Brazil lies in the Southern Hemisphere, its seasons are the exact opposite of what Northern Hemisphere residents are used to: summer is December through March and winter June through September. Within the country the climate varies considerably from region to region.
Temperatures are still high and annual variations small, but daily temperature extremes are greater, typically ranging from a low of 65 °F (18 °C) to a high of 95 °F (35 °C).
Temperature averages for July at major cities throughout South America are listed below in degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Earth’s tilted axis causes the seasons. Throughout the year, different parts of Earth receive the Sun’s most direct rays. So, when the North Pole tilts toward the Sun, it’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere. And when the South Pole tilts toward the Sun, it’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
Spring – March, April & May. Summer – June, July & August. Autumn – September, October & November. Winter – December, January & March.
Australia’s seasons are at opposite times to those in the northern hemisphere. December to February is summer; March to May is autumn; June to August is winter; and September to November is spring.
Death Valley, California, USA The aptly named Furnace Creek currently holds the record for hottest air temperature ever recorded. The desert valley reached highs of 56.7C in the summer of 1913, which would apparently push the limits of human survival.Sep 2, 2021

Coldest place: Sarmiento, Argentina It is worth noting that this is the lowest low altitude temperature recorded in South America: it has almost certainly got colder in the High Andes at some point.May 5, 2014
Spring (September – November)
Widely considered the best time of the year to visit South America due to its balance of comfortable temperatures and dry weather, spring hails the arrival of stunning wildflowers and newborn animals and the departure of the winter tourists.
Visiting South America in August
August is one of the best times of the year to visit the tropical wetlands of the Pantanal and is a great time to visit Rio with spring weather, largely blue skies and rising temperatures.
Roughly speaking, the summer months are December to March, autumn is April to May, winter is June to August, and spring is September to November. Because southern Africa is such a large area, and each region’s offerings change with the seasons, when you go may determine where you go.
