There are actually two very different seasons in a savanna; a very long dry season (winter), and a very wet season (summer).
Because in the dry season it doesn't rain, trees can only grow in the wet season. It can get as high as 120 degrees in the summer. Map http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/savanna_climate_page.htm Sources Cited http://room42.wikispaces.com/Savanna+Climate
