winter is hard. The hours of sun are few. Frost lasts a long time and snow is frequent in the upper parts of the mountain.
The regular rainy season is in the months of November and December. In summer and spring storms are frequent, previously very feared due to the flooding of the river that formed deep ravines capable of endangering the houses located on the slopes of the mountain.
