It is salubrious by northern European and US standards. No "real" snow where people live. About 12C (54 F) daily highs where I live in Winter. It used to get a bit colder sometimes, but not so much these recent years.
It's very sad, but a bunch of tourists died of dehydration/Heat exhaustion during this Summer's heatwave, the last couple of months. We've had a bunch of days over 40C (104F), and a lot of foreigners just aren't used to that type of temperature. Some of the most popular tourist destinations are in the heart of the interior desert, and they've been closer to 50C (122F) and over.
