Mexico Geography, Climate, and Weather




Geography
Mexico, known as United Mexican States (Estados Unidos Mexicanos in Spanish). The nation's capital, Mexico City, is one of the largest cities in the world.
Mexico is bordered by the United States on the north, the Pacific Ocean on the west, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea on the east, and Guatemala and Belize on the south.
It is characterized by an extraordinary diversity in topography and climate and is crossed by two major mountain chains, the Sierra Madre Occidental and the Sierra Madre Oriental.

Climate
The climate throughout Mexico is characterized by high temperatures and moderate to low rainfall. The highland climates vary considerably with elevation, but the central plateau generally has a moderate climate with few extremes of hot or cold.
Mexico City, for example, has an average July temperature of 17 C (63 F) and an average January temperature of 12 C (54 F). Cities at lower elevations on the plateau have somewhat warmer climates.
