Summer is the rainiest season almost everywhere. The temperature increases gradually from north to south, so that the south has a purely tropical climate. Altitude plays an important role as well: there are many cities located at high altitude, including the capital, which have a cooler climate. During winter, a cold wind from the United States, the “Norte” can blow, able to lower the temperature abruptly, especially in the centre-north. Because of this wind, the northern inland areas (and a little less the northern coastal areas) during winter may experience cold waves, especially in hilly and mountainous areas. *Vegetation: The four types of vegetation in Mexico divided into two important biogeographic zones by the Tropic of Cancer: Tropical vegetation, with both deciduous and rain forests; pine-oak forests, with coniferous and Quercus- Pinus forests; cloud, subtropical, or mesophytic forests; and arid or xerophytic vegetation. Meadows exist in all four cases.
