    I live in Jamaica and the weather here is very warm and windy, sometimes rainy. Most people here and globally who I have interacted with and observed, do not like this kind of weather- they prefer the colder weathers but I love this kind of weather. Most people here try to avoid the sun at all costs because it burns the skin, has the potential to damage the eyes and tan them.

    I love this Tropical Weather because: it feels great on my skin, nourishes the Earth, dries my clothes fast and naturally, I don't have to pay for heat and gives my skin natural Vitamin D. It makes me very relaxed and propelled or motivated to explore the outdoors and interact with nature.

    I live in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. In the summer season it is very hot here. During the rainy season, it is hot in the morning and cool in the evening when it rains. During winter season, it is very cold in the early morning and evening. Fog also forms in the early morning and evening causing visible distraction.

    Portugal, an almost tropical country,
    Weather and climate in Portugal is Mediterranean. Portugal is one of the hottest European countries.
    Portugal has on average 300 days of sunshine, doing the math, about 80% of the days of the year are sun.

    I live in Northern Indiana, and our weather fluctuates as well. They say if you don't like the weather in Indiana, just wait until tomorrow because it will be different. At least in Michigan, you have some beautiful scenery. We have corn fields. I do like the fact, though, that none of our weather is too extreme. It gets cold in the winter and hot in the summer, but not nearly as much so as in some places.

    I live in Mumbai, India. This city never sleeps and is the economic capital of India. Mumbai has a very humid climate, so you are bound to sweat a lot during summer anytime when you step out of the house. Temperatures range between 25-39 degrees Celsius during summers. Mumbai has moderate temperature most of the time all year round. Monsoons can be very severe, sometimes and is capable of bringing the city to a complete stop. During winters the temperatures can come down to as low as 15 degrees Celsius.

    The weather right now is quite unpredictable. Since I live in Florida, it could be sunny one minute and a storm the next. Usually I would be outside under the sun but lately, i have been trading shorts and a tee shirt with raincoat and umbrella. Hopefully, the sun will come out more often because I'm tired of being stuck inside.

    The weather out here in New Orleans, Louisiana is very flip floppy. Overall it's very hot and humid. Feels like the sun is eating through your flesh with its sun rays. Even during the winter time, it's very hot!

    I stay in Bangalore, India. The best part about this city is the weather here. Surrounded by beautiful lakes and gardens, this city stays pleasant most of the time. The cool breeze that starts early morning rises up in temperature slowly as the sun starts hitting us with it's photons. Always ready to be surrounded by clouds, the people who live in this city prepare themselves by carrying an umbrella as the clouds can come all over any second. Afternoons can be really pleasant with cloud cover or sometimes be really hot in the summers. Winters are generally cold but not that cold, so you don't really need heavy woolen jackets and accessories.

    I am a South Mississippi native who now lives in the Midwest. I would give my right arm to have a Mississippi winter again. Who needs seasons when you can wear shorts on Christmas?

    I live in Kenya and right now its raining really heavily. Most parts of the country is flooded and the run off water is causing a lot of damages to properties and hinders the transport system. Accompanying the heavy downpour is a cold weather condition that gives an advantageous opportunities to coffee shop owners.

    Being a planting season, most farmers are benefiting from the rains to grow their crops and improve food diversification in the country.

    Hi. It's good to know that I have a fellow Filipino citizen here too. Well, as a citizen in our country, we are used to our two official seasons of weather: the dry and rainy season. Honestly, I did not enjoy our dry season because it gives us extremely hot weather that irritates me whenever I'm at home. We can only enjoy this season during summer vacation and it only lasts for few days and we endure the extreme heat in the city the rest of our dry season. Yes, we can always use some cooling machines like air conditioner but it costs a lot to our electric bill. The only way that I can be able to enjoy the season when I'm at home is to have some refreshment drink like halo-halo, fruit shake, iced coffee or any cold drinks. The biggest phenomenon that might happen during dry season is having a massive drought which we called as El Niño.

    The other season that we have is the rainy season. During this season, we finally feel at ease from the exhaustion feeling of the extreme heat of the dry season because the weather starts to cool down which is good and eventually forms some dark clouds that will officially start the rainy season. As a Filipino, we enjoy this season by taking bath in the rain and let us feel of its droplets. Sometimes, we invite friends or even our family to play and to shower together in the rain. I've tried it already and it a fun thing to do. I enjoy it. But during rainy season too, we also have this fear for the strong storms to come because it affects many people's lives including their livelihood system or businesses. Strong storms may also be turned into a giant one which gives a lot of raindrops per hour that also causes a big volume of water to flood in different areas. Sometimes, there are cases of state calamities which means that people's lives are already endangered or in high risk. Just like the dry season, if it records a massive volume of raindrops per hour then it will consider a phenomenon and a counterpart of El Niño and which we also called La Niña.

    I live in the eastern portion of the Canadian province Ontario. When it comes to describing the weather that we experience from season to season it can sometimes sound like a story was made up to entertain potential visitors. It has been said that you can experience all four seasons in a single day and I have come pretty close.

    Our longest season is winter. It tends to start around November and the mercury drops like a stone. We may or may not get snow before Christmas but once it appears there is no getting rid of it until spring. We routinely experience wind chills of -30 and commonly see snow storms which leave us with more than a foot of new snow. Freezing rain is also a frequent visitor, leaving plenty of destruction in its wake.

    Spring starts to arrive around mid-April. Everything is dirty and muddy from the melting snow but we usually get plenty of sun and wind to help dry things up. Temperatures are usually comfortable during the day but they drop below zero again once the sun goes down. Rain is the most dominant weather trend throughout much of April and May.

    Summer usually is said to have arrived by mid-June. The temperatures soar during the day and do not cool down much over the evening. The further we progress into the summer, the higher the humidity we deal with daily. Blackflies and mosquitoes are also out in droves which is why no Canadian medicine cabinet does not contain bug spray.

    Fall makes an appearance sometime around mid-September with cooler temperatures and more comfortable sleeping conditions. As the leaves change Ontario is a beautiful sight to behold. Unfortunately, fall seems to get shorter and shorter every year so it is an "enjoy it while you can" season.

    I also live in Texas I was born here I live about 2 hours from Houston and the weather is crazy hot and humid! I love the hot weather here but do wish that during the fall and winter time it felt more like winter and fall instead of summertime!

    I did live on the Oregon coast for 11 years and it rained 9 months out of the year and it was cold most of the time but I loved all the outdoor activities you could do like hiking and rafting where in Texas you don't get much of that. But honestly as much as the Texas heat sucks sometimes I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

    Our country, The Philippines is located near the equator. We experience two seasons in the country, the wet season and the dry season. This is dependent as well on your location in the country as some areas experience rain all throughout the year. In my location, we experience seven warmest months of the year which starts from March up to October. The winter monsoon brings cooler air from November to February. May is the warmest month, and January, the coolest. Sometimes here in the tropics, rain can fall any day. If it rains in the dry season it will usually be a nice afternoon shower to cool you down and wash the dust away, more relieving than anything else. During the rainy seasons, we experience heavy rainfall and thunderstorm. Our country is surrounded by oceans and seas so often have storms in different islands of our country.
    The Philippine climate is the best during the months of December to May, the ideal month is March just before the heat and humidity really start to kick in. If you are traveling in May we suggest you head up to the Summer Capital which is Baguio City where my hometown is.

    I live in Maui where you would think weather would be beautiful all year long but that is not the case. I live in what we call here upcountry which is just a way of saying up on the hill away from anything. The weather here compare to the rest of the island is quiet different. Very windy yet still hot but can turn into pouring rain in a blink of a eye. Nights get pretty cold. Wh et re as the rest of the island is hot and humid all around the clock.

    I live in Philippines and we have a tropical maritime climate so the weather is generally hot and quite humid. You can sweat everyday even when you are sedentary. Usually, the temperatures in in my country range between 21 °C and 32 °C but it gets even hot in Summer which can go up to 38° to 40°. For me, it' better to live in a tropical country because it's healthy and if I feel comfortable, air conditioner and cold drinks are everywhere so it's not a problem at all. Plus, you'll enjoy the beautiful beaches in Philippines. It's more fun in the Philippines!
