What is tropical climate?

Answer

A tropical climate has warm temperatures throughout the year and a significant amount of precipitation. The average temperature each month is higher than 64 F, and tropical areas get at least 59 inches of rainfall annually.

Tropical regions of the world are located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. There are three types of tropical zones: tropical rainforest, tropical monsoon and tropical wet and dry. Temperatures in a rainforest remain consistent year-round, and there is usually a daily afternoon shower. A tropical monsoon climate is similar, although one or two months are drier. Tropical wet and dry territories have specific rainy and non-rainy seasons. The dry season lasts for more than two months.
