Mediterranean Climate

The Mediterranean climate is characterized by warm dry summers and mild, wet winters. As a result, areas with this climate receive almost all of their precipitation during their winter, autumn and spring seasons, and may go anywhere from 4 to 6 months during the summer without having any significant precipitation.
