General precipitation patterns for seasons (rain, snow) General temperature patterns for seasons. (search on Google detailed map of he world.)
Climate Description The island of Akiba is found in the North Atlantic Ocean and located near the western side of Spain and the Moroccan border. The feature that controls its weather is the Gulf Stream. Because we are located in the path of the Gulf, our winter is not very cold, and our summer is not as hot as Florida, but typically warm.
Climate Description – 150-200 words Iceland is an island in the stormiest region of the North Atlantic between Norway and Greenland. The Arctic Circle just touches the north coast of Iceland. Two features control its weather and climate: it is located relatively close to the Arctic circle; it also lies in the path of the current of warm oceanic water called the Gulf Stream. As a result the weather is changeable throughout the year, but sea-level temperatures are surprisingly warm during the winter. Much of the winter precipitation is snow, and autumn and winter are the wettest seasons. Average daily maximum temperatures range from 2 °C in winter to 14 °C in summer. Inland, Iceland is mountainous with several volcanic peaks rising above 5,000 feet. These higher areas are covered with snow all year round and there are extensive ice fields at higher levels. Although Iceland is very cold, Arctic air occasionally affects Iceland in spring and winter and drifting ice may block some north coast inlets, the main port and capital (Reykjavik) is ice-free all year. Summers are generally cool and cloudy with brief spells of fine pleasant weather. (186 words) Source: Met Office: Island Past URL: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/europe/iceland_past.html
