There are different climatic zones in this territory due to the contrast between the region’s northern part and the southern sector, as well as the islander area. In general, we can distinguish five types of climates in the continental zone:

Steppe with abundant cloudiness: it stretches by the littoral until Zapallar, although in some occasions reaches the interior of the valleys. In the coast, the stratocumulus is quite low, for the contact with the ground produces, frequently, coastal fogginess.

Warm template with winter rains: prevailing from Zapallar southwards, exceeding the regional boundary. Is a long dry very cloudy season. An example is Valparaiso, that has and average temperature of 14,4°C and annual precipitations above the 450 mm.

Template steppe with winter precipitations: is characterized for having clear skies and a relatively low humidity. It stretches by the center of the region, as in Los Andes that presents an annual average temperature of 15, 2 °C and 300 mm yearly rainfalls, concentrating in March and September.

Cold mountain steppe: it has a dry atmosphere with a great sky transparency. The temperature oscillations, that are superior to the 10°C, are ruled by the altitude. A representative place of this kind of climate is the Ju8ncal sector where is located the likewise named hill.

High mountain tundra: is characterized by low temperatures during the whole year (the average is 1,7°C). The lowest limit is located near the 3.500 masl and precipitations are generally in the form of snow.

The climate of the islander zones, as in the case of eastern Island, is typically tropical and the Juan Fernandez archipelago is warm- template with a dry season from four to five months.
