How could I analyze a climate diagram?

Humm...Well, here you've got a way, follow it!

Geography and history department. IES FRAY PEDRO DE URBINA


 A climograph is a graphical representation of basic climatic parameters, that is monthly average temperature and precipitation, at a certain location. It is used for a quick-view of the climate of a location.

1. Introduction to comment sentence.
2. Regarding precipitation:
• How it rains (annual total, is it wet or dry climate?)
• When it rains (number of dry months, higher rainfall seasons, rainiest month, driest month ...)
• Why does it rain? Frontal rains (passing Lows), convective (thunderstorms, cold drop ...) or orographic (mountain areas).
3. Regarding the temperatures:
• Annual average temperature (cold climate, warm, hot ...)
• Warmest month
• Coldest month
• Annual temperature gradient or range (Is it low / high? And why?)
• How are the summers (hot,> 25 °; warm, 20-25 °)
• How are the winters (fresh,> 10 °; cold, <10 °) and how much they last (they will be long, if over five months or more do not reach 10 º)
4. Climate type, characteristics, areas in which it occurs. Why do you think it is that and not another?
5. What plant vegetation and landscapes are associated with this kind of climate? (Forests, shrub or herbaceous steppes, altitudinal zones of vegetation in mountains, etc.).

6. Concluding sentence (you can insist on the kind of climate that is).
