Climate of Zhenia

From Themys Project
Koppen climate map of Zhenia, identifying the various climate types existent in the nation.

The climate of Zhenia comprises a wide range of long-term average weather conditions across Zhenia's vast geographic scale and diverse topography, from subtropical to subarctic. Being situated at the eastern seaboard of a continent in the northern hemisphere, northern Zhenia is generally colder than southern Zhenia, while western Zhenia is generally drier than eastern Zhenia. Based on the Koppen system, there are 14 different major climatic subtypes that can vary greatly, ranging from tropical monsoon climate near its southern edges and humid subtropical climate throughout much of southern Zhenia to humid continental throughout much of northern and northeastern Zhenia, and from arid deserts in the northwest, alpine tundras and glaciers in the north and west to subarctic climate subarctic climate in the far north. Its diverse topography has resulted in the existence of several contrasting microclimates. With the exception of arid deserts and tropical monsoon regions as well as alpine tundra and glaciers, four seasons are visible throughout most of Zhenia, with local adjustments: spring (usually March, April and May), summer (June, July, August and early September), autumn (late September, October and early November) and winter (late November, December, January, February).
