Precipitations are extremely insufficient within the semi-desert zone in summer. The summer weather mode forms in as early as May in the semi-desert zone. Sunny dry weathers dominate starting the second half of May almost everywhere sometimes even exceeding the July values.
There are no precipitations at all sometimes. The impact of very dry and hot winds is observed from the south. The recurrence of hot and dry weathers increases up to 65 - 70% in the areas of the Usturt Plateau, Betpak Dala, Syrdarya midstream and South Balkhash.
