Climate of the Amazon Rainforest
The Amazon Rain forest Climate is typically a tropical climate, also known as equatorial climate, found approximately 12 degrees to the North and South of the equator.
Like any other tropical rain forest, it's hot and humid throughout the year, with an average annual temperature of 27°C.
There isn't such a thing as summer or winter, or it's not pronounced, the annual temperature range is about 2°C.
In fact, the difference between day and night temperature is greater than the difference between any two seasons.
And it's not as hot as it may be expected - temperatures rarely reach over 33°C - not much if we compare it with other parts of Brazil, such as Rio, where is not unusual to find temperatures in the range of 40°C during summer.
