South America is one of the largest continents and therefore enjoys a highly varied climate. South America‚Äôs seasons are generally defined as being wet and dry, although the regions of Bolivia, Ecuador, and Peru are dry and cold from November to May every year. The Amazon region enjoys hot and cold weather which suits the growth of rain forests.  The temperature also tends to get more hot and humid in this area. Argentina and Chile have more varied latitudes where winter months tend to bring freezing temperature, and in the mountainous regions of Patagonia bring some snow. The Antarctic region has the strongest winds anywhere in the planet, and is also easier reached during the summer months due to ice blockages on the road.

Those are the general types of climate in South America; however, its vast landscapes bring about more distinct climate types. Here you have the desert highlands which enjoy warm to very high temperatures and hardly any rainfall.

The grassland areas have above average rainfall with hot summers and cold winters, deciduous forests have four seasons with hot summers and cold winters and during autumn, the trees shed their leaves.

The rainforest has high temperatures as well as rainfall throughout the year, and the savannah has high temperatures all year as well as rain during the summer. The Mediterranean region has warm to high temperatures with occasional rainfall, and autumn and winter months. Lastly, the Alpine and mountain areas are cold and snowy, where temperatures can go below freezing from October to May.

South America is also affected by two climate phenomenon, same with other countries in the world, known as El Nino and La Nina. El Nino, also known as warm event, occurs when the circulation of wind is slow and warm, heating up the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Conversely, La Nina is the opposite and brings in more rainfall.

The seasons in the South America are the same as in North America, only they arrive in reverse order. These discrepancies are more pronounced as one moves away from the Equator.

The South American countries south of Brazil, Ecuador and Peru which include, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia and Chile all lie below the equator and thus in the Southern Hemisphere.

Since the earth revolves round the sun much like a toy top, it tends to shift on its axis. This we know is the cause of seasons. In summer the northern or top part of the earth tilts a bit towards the sun and the southern half away from it. Hence there's winter in the south.

In most parts of South America Summer is between December and February, Autumn is from March to May, Winter from June to August and Spring from September to November.

The same as ours, but six months ahead (or behind) ours. Our summer, their winter. Our spring, their fall, etc.
