We have done some work on Australia’s climatic zones but it looks like we need to go over just what the weather will be like in the different climate zones.
Weather: temperature, rainfall, weather condition on the day or short term
Climate: is the weather (above) pattern over a longer time – this becomes the weather we expect in the different seasons.
In different climates, the seasons are really quite different as you learned in the video we watched the other day. We learned about TEMPERATE, TROPICAL and POLAR CLIMATES.
Can you remember which climate type we have in Margaret River?
Let’s look at the map you coloured in again to check just where these climate zones are, and more detail showing a few more climate zones. What are they?
