The Climate & Weather of Asia

Asia’s weather and climate are affected by winds known as monsoons. During the Northern Hemisphere winter, these monsoons blow southwards from the Arctic into East Asia, causing cold, dry weather.

In summer there is a reversal. The monsoon comes from the seas to the south and southeast of the region, making the weather hot and humid. Most of East Asia’s rain falls between April and October, being heaviest in the east and decreasing away from the coast.

Northeastern monsoons pass through South Asia and Southeast Asia between November and March. They cause the coolest weather in those regions. During April, temperatures rise due to the Southwest monsoon.Wet weather and heavy rains that cause flooding in some areas are usual between May and October.

‘Tropical’ Asian countries are those lying midway between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator (and the rest of Southeast Asia in the Southern Hemisphere towards the Tropic of Capricorn) have warm and hot weather throughout the year, with temperatures usually dropping only at night around December and January, but remaining above freezing except in higher and mountainous regions.

Central Asia’s climate ranges from bitterly cold in mountainous regions to extremely hot and dry in the deserts, affected by Arctic winds blowing south through Siberia.
