Climate refers to a number of phenomena relative to a region and its weather.

Factors to be taken into account in order to describe a climate include:

  • Minimum cold season temperature
  • Annual rainfall
  • Length of periods without rainfall (droughts)
  • Likelihood of regular flooding
  • Wind speeds encountered
  • Cloud cover versus sunny weather

Climate affects the viability of flora and fauna in a given region. It also affects human beings desire to live (or not live), or vacation, in certain areas.
