Weather & Climate in Peru

South AmericaPeruWeather & Climate in Peru

The combination of tropical latitude, mountain ranges, topographical variations and two ocean currents (Humboldt and El Niño) gives Peru a wide variety of climates. The coastal region has moderate temperatures, low rainfall and high humidity, except for the warmer and more humid northern areas. In the mountainous region, summer rains are frequent, and the temperature and humidity decrease with altitude until the icy peaks of the Andes. The Peruvian Amazon is characterised by heavy rainfall and high temperatures, except for its southernmost part, which has cold winters and seasonal rainfall.
