Arabia Weather - It is truly amazing to live in the same country. If you are a fan of winter and extreme cold, you move to the south of your country, and if you want to enjoy the warmth and high temperatures, you go north, and this is exactly what South America experiences, where the cold of the south goes to the north and the warmth of summer to the north, which means seasonal. At once but how?

 

The geographical location of South America greatly controls weather patterns and climatic conditions

 

The continent of South America is located between latitudes 23.5 and 25 degrees north and 56 degrees south. Thus, it includes about (81) latitude circles extending over a distance of (11,200 km). These circles include (the tropical latitude and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn), and this is what distinguishes it from the North American continent, and this site puts The continent is within the scope of the tropical, subtropical, and tropical regions, which constitute an area of more than 75% of the continent and place it within the tropical and tropical climatic characteristics and place it on opposite sides of the North American continent, which includes 90% of its area that falls within the temperate and cold climate.

 

The extension of the continent southward to a latitude of 56 C, with the presence of 25 latitudes north of the tropical latitude, means that it falls within the framework of a moderate and cold climate in the south of the continent. This means the presence of all climate patterns on the continent, starting from the tropical and tropical climate to the cold, humid climate in The far south

Geographic nature: elevation and depression above sea level and terrain affect climatic characteristics

 

The variation in terrain leads to differences in temperatures over the same latitude on the continent. For example, we find that the temperature in Mexico varies over the same latitude, reaching (26°C) in the low coastal area to less than (10°C) above the mountains and high plateaus, and this also appears. The effect of the terrain in the Andes Mountains at the same tropical latitude is that the highlands are covered with snow throughout the year due to the altitude factor, while the average annual temperature in the Amazon Plain and at the same latitude is not less than (26 m).

 

Hot weather in the north of the continent and negative temperatures in the south due to the geographical nature

Here, all of the above can be summarized that the South American continent’s weather and climate are largely controlled by its geographical location, as most of the countries located in the north of the country, especially those located north of the equator, live in hot climates with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius, coinciding with the prevalence of unstable weather conditions characterized by severity as a result of heating. The elevation of the Earth's surface, which is enhanced by moist air currents from the ocean, creates thick thunderclouds accompanied by very heavy rain, interspersed with hail falling of large sizes and high intensity. It is also possible for the formation of tornadoes from severe thunderstorms to form.

In complete contrast to this, the south of the continent lives in very cold climates, where temperatures at night reach below zero degrees Celsius, and God has affairs in His creation.

 

God knows.
