Climate and timezone
The Huge size of the USA means that the climate varies considerably from region to region. The temperatures reach both extremes of the scale, from the freezing -80 F in Alaska to the smoking 135 F in the Mortal Valley of California. Generally the climate is moderated.
In winter (December-April) the states of the North are the coldest, with extreme, freezing temperatures. The low temperatures in January and February are slightly hotter thanks to the Chinook winds coming from Rocky Mountains. The states of the South, known as the ' sunbelt ' are quite the opposite, with temperatures rarely falling below 0.
Summers (June-September) are hot, but for the New England, the Oregon and Washington they tend to be rainier and less predictable. The states of the Northwest of the Pacific are generally moderated whereas the South, the East coast and the Midwest are wetter. The heat waves are common in the Southwest.
The spring and the autumn are generally soft, hot and sunny with some wet zones, the Northwest of the Pacific coast in particular.
The season of tornados arrives at Midwest between April and June and hurricanes are common at the beginning of the summer along the East coast of the South and the coast of the Gulf of Mexico - the TV and the radio will emit warnings for these two regions, but the chances to meet this kind of thing on a short visit are rare.
The best moment to go in the US is from June till August and it is the most popular because the time weather is top! It is also the most expensive moment.... The winters in the states of the North can be very cold but the snow is an advantage for the lovers of winter sports, but the states of the South are brightened up almost all year round.
