MEXICO
CLIMATE
OVERVIEW

Mexico has different climates due to its wide latitudinal extent and the presence of the Northern Atlantic and Northeast Pacific Oceans’ subtropical high-pressure systems. Two distinct climate zones may be identified through the Tropic of Cancer: the temperate one, generally arid or moderately rainy with mild to warm summers and cool to cold winters; and the tropical one, which is usually rainy and hot.
