Chile Geography, Climate, and Weather




Geography

Chile is 2,705 mi/4,329 km long (about the distance in the U.S. from San Diego, California, to Charleston, South Carolina), but averages only 100 mi/160 km in width. Desert dominates the north, tundra the south. The center has many fertile valleys and lovely scenery.
The nation's coastline is indented by many bays and fjords, while the eastern regions terminate in the Andes Mountains. Some people associate all of South America with the Amazon jungle and heat, but there is no jungle in Chile-in fact, much of the land can be freezing cold.


Climate
Seasons are well defined. Spring between September and November has mild temperatures, which contribute to the flourishing greenness of plants and trees.
Summer, between December and February, is dry and hot with temperatures that can reach above 30C (87 F) and at night it cools down slightly, however in the seaside this temperature drop can be more notorious.
Autumn is between March and May, and temperatures decrease gradually. Winter has cold mornings down to -2 C ( 28 F) and temperature rises at midday but always below 15C ( 60 F).
