Spring is considered as the best time to go to Iran, this time is vary from mid march to late of the may where daytime temperatures will be very pleasant between 15-25 C in the cities of Tehran, Shiraz, Yazd, Isfahan, Kashan and Kerman while sometimes there’ll be some rain at evening times. Though at the north Iran and Caspian Sea regions can be rainy, but no flood.
Summer (mid-June, July, August, through mid-September) is quite hot and dry in most of the country when temperatures in the high are generally vary between 25-35 C. Tehran will be hot; Isfahan & Shiraz are between 25-38 C particularly hotter at afternoon times. Temperatures of the desert cities of Yazd, Kerman and Kashan are hot and dry ranged from 33-40 C.
Autumn (mid-September through October) is second best travel time with mostly mild weather with shorter days, and rain may begin again in October. However, traveling during the autumn can be also pleasant to most of the country.
Winter (November, December, January and February) can be chill and rainy with some light snow, with occasional cold but sunny with light wind during the day in Esfahan, Tehran, Shiraz and Yazd, however, west and northwest of Iran during the winter is quite colder with heavy snow than the rest of the country.
When deciding when to go to Iran you must first work out where you’d like to go. Temperatures can vary wildly: when it’s -5°C in Tabriz it might be 35°C in Bandar Abbas, but for most people spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to visit. At other times, the seasons have advantages and disadvantages depending on where you are. For example, the most agreeable time to visit the Persian Gulf coast is during winter, when the humidity is low and temperatures mainly in the 20s. At this time, however, the more elevated northwest and northeast can be freezing, with mountain roads impassable due to snow. Except on the Persian Gulf coast, winter nights can be bitterly cold, but we think the days (often clear and about 15°C in much of the country) are more pleasant than the summer heat.
And when we say ‘heat’, we mean it. Between May and October temperatures often rise into the 40s, and in the deserts, southern provinces and along the Gulf coast, very little is done between noon and 4pm or 5pm. For women, who need to wear head coverings whenever they’re outside, summer can be particularly trying.0
