Climate of Argentina

Argentina includes a very wide range of climatic zones, from the tropical to the Antarctic. The climate in provinces of Misiones and Corrientes, the northern area of Entre Ríos and the eastern section of the Chaco region is warm, humid and receives rainfall throughout the year. Buenos Aires, Entre Rios, Santa Fe and the eastern strip of Cordoba are in moderate climate. Patagonian Andes, Tierra del Fuego nearer to Antarctica are in cold climate .In the Andes, temperatures are dictated by altitude rather than latitude. It can be bitterly cold in the cordillera, while cities like Salta and Jujuy at a much lower altitude a few kilometers away may be baking under a tropical sun. In summer Santiago del Estero registers the highest temperature in Argentina, but the Chaco region of which it is part is pleasant in winter. Northern Patagonia, including Bariloche and the provinces of Neuquén and Chubut, offer some of the best skiing conditions in the world.
