Equatorial Climate
Many regions close to the equator experience an equatorial climate. These regions include, the

temperature range may be as low as 3 degrees Celsius. The diurnal or daily temperature range
(the difference between the highest temperature in the day and the lowest temperature at night) is
usually greater. Humidity is usually very high.

regions are affected by the ITCZ. As the ITCZ passes over these areas it brings heavy rainfall
and thunderstorms. In some areas, the ITCZ causes two periods of very heavy rainfall every year.
