Antarctica is the coldest and windiest continent on earth. The Antarctica weather is much colder than the Arctic temperature at the north pole.
The diagram above shows that the south pole is a lot colder than the north pole. This is because Antarctica is higher up due to the hills under the snow and the higher it gets the colder it gets, also it is surrounded by water which keeps the temperatures lower.
Rankin Inlet is found in North Canada in the Arctic. The Graph shows the monthly average temperatures(the blue lines) and the average monthly rainfall(the red bars) Because this is in the Northern Hemisphere the summer months are in June July and August, this is where we find the temperature the highest , with it reaching just above 10 degrees. The coldest temperature is in January . It gets as low as -30* Rainfall matches the temperatures. Themost rainfall happens in the summer months, while when it is cold during winter it does not rain much.
McMurdo Station is one of the bases in Antarctica. Scientists spend summer here to study the area, but due to the extreme cold most leave during winter. The red line shows the average temperature and the blue bars show the average rainfall. In the southern hemisphere the summer months are during December , January and February, this graph shows that they are the months with the highest temps, reaching a very hot -3*. During winter, the coldest temperature is in August where it gets as low as -27*. Rainfall in the Antarctica is low the whole year around with less than 25mm. The most rain falls in the first half of the year . The least amount falls between August and November.
