This region’s relief determines that this climate element become changeable, longitudinally as well as transversally. There are four kinds of climate.
– Warm template with a four months short dry season: it is observed at the central western part of the intermediate depression, penetrating southwards until near Nueva Imperial. It shows abundant precipitations during winter, which become scarce and disappear completely in summer. Its pluviometer yearly averages are near the 2000 mm concentrating mostly between March and November. The temperatures present moderate amplitudes between day and night, reaching annual average recordings of 11°C.
– Cold rainy template with landlocked influence: it occupies the littoral plains, some sections of the intermediate depression and some spaces under the height of sea level of 900 masl. The temperatures varies between the 17,2°C in January and 7,6 in July, with an annual average of about 12°C. Precipitations fall during the whole year, though, during January and February lower considerably averaging only 28 mm. The annual fallen rain varies between 1.000 mm at the lowest relieves and 2.000 mm at the highest ones.
– Cold rainy template: it develops at the Andean and coastal slopes between the 900 and 2.000 masl. It receives an annual precipitation oscillating between 2.000 and 3.000 mm. Regarding temperatures, only in four months of the year presents an average superior to 10°C.
– Ice due to height: it is present above the 1.800 masl. And is characterized for having low temperatures during the whole year, generally inferior to 0°C and snow precipitations.
