Equatorial Climate

An equatorial climate, also known as a tropical rainforest climate, is a type of tropical climate in which there is no dry season – all months have mean precipitation values of at least 60 mm (2.36 inches). Equatorial climates have no pronounced summer or winter; it is hot and wet throughout the year and rainfall is heavy and falls throughout the afternoon on an almost daily basis. One day in an equatorial climate is very similar to the next, while the change in temperature between day and night may be larger than the average change in temperature between "summer" and "winter".
