Le Climat du Méxique/ The Climate of Mexico/ El Clima de México

(click on the poster for a larger view)

Mexico is situated in the subtropical and temperate regions of North America. The topography of Mexico ranges from lowland coastal to high mountain areas. Mexico's geographic situation and diverse topography lead to variable climatic regimes.

January temperatures range from 5ºC in the North (montane Sonora & Chihuahua) to 28ºC in the South (southern Chiapas). July temperatures range from 13ºC in the montane regions (Mexico) to 31ºC in arid regions like Sonora.

February is dry throughout Mexico with the only significant precipitation falling (<55mm) in Quintana Roo, Yucatan and northwestern Baja California. In June, high precipitation (>400mm) occurs in Veracruz-Llave and southern Chiapas but may be absent in the arid northern Baja California and Sonora.

The variability of the Mexican climate allows this part of Northern America to support a diverse vegetation, including desert, tropical, subtropical, temperate and montane communities.
