Types of Weather






Weather, which is a temporary status of the atmosphere, varies with time and place and various types of weather can be seen in various parts of the world. Weather is never constant anywhere.
It depends on the climactic conditions and changes with the change of seasons too. Weather may of different types, such as coastal weather in the oceanic regions, hot weather in the Equatorial Climate zones, cold weather in the polar climate zones and mountain weather in the hilly and mountainous regions of the world. Lets talk about a little about these different types of weather conditions in the various parts of the world.

Coastal Weather
Coastal weather can be observed in the coastal or oceanic regions. The western coasts of the continents and the southeastern regions of Australia are characterized with their coastal climate.

The southeastern Australia is located between the South Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. One of the most prominent characteristics of coastal weather is that the temperature does not vary so much with the change of seasons throughout the year in these of these coastal areas. The climate of marine regions is never extremes.

Hot Weather
Extreme hot weather can be seen in the equatorial regions of the earth. Throughout the year, the temperature remains very warm in these equatorial locations. The climate in equatorial regions is also characterized with a very damp and humid weather. The amount of rainfall is also very high throughout the year. Sometimes the temperature falls a little (only about 3 degrees of Celsius) in the winter months.

Cold Weather
Cold weather can be observed in the polar climate zones. These regions are known for their extreme cold climates. The temperature remains almost same throughout the year n these Polar Regions.

Mountain Weather
The weather in the mountainous regions is known as the mountain weather. The climate of those regions is generally cold enough. New Zealand comes under those high countries that enjoy the mountain weather conditions.
