FRENCH POLYNESIA Climate : Located on the northern edge of the subtropical high pressure belt of the southern hemisphere, French Polynesia is practically all the year under the influence of the trade winds of the eastern sector. The convergence of the northeast and southeast trade winds creates a disturbed zone called the South Pacific Convergence Zone (ZCPS). It is on this discontinuity that the cyclonic perturbations that affect French Polynesia, generally from January to March, develop. Its climate is tropical maritime type. There are two seasons: the warm season from November to April, the cool season from May to October. French Polynesia can be divided into three climatic zones: - the first encompasses the Marquesas Islands, the two seasons are little differentiated in temperature and humidity, in rainfall rather low and equally distributed throughout the year. - the second includes the archipelagos of the Society and the Tuamotu, the two seasons are well differentiated as regards the rainfall regime with a very sharp maximum during the warm season. - the third is of interest to the archipelagos of the Australes and the Gambier, and the south-east of the Tuamotu, the two seasons are very distinct as regards temperatures. The rainfall is strong but the maximum in the warm season is less accentuated. the two seasons are distinct in temperature. The rainfall is strong but the maximum in the warm season is less accentuated. the two seasons are distinct in temperature.

GREECE Climate : Temperate climate, mild, wet winters, hot and dry summers. The climate in Greece is typical of the Mediterranean climate: mild and rainy winter, relatively warm and dry summer, and generally prolonged periods of sunshine for most of the year. A wide variety of climate sub-types, also in the Mediterranean climate approach, is present in several regions of Greece. This is due to the influence of topography (large mountain chains, along the central part), and to the air masses coming from the moisture sources of the central Mediterranean Sea.
GUADELOUPE Climate : Tropical, humid and insular climate. The Grande-Terre limestone plateau and the islands regularly experience severe droughts. In Basse-Terre, the relief, perpendicular to the flow of the trade winds, regulates the regime of the rains. Large-scale phenomena (cyclones, grain lines, for example) or on a local scale (diurnal convection encouraging the development of often violent and stormy vector clouds) sometimes provoke terrible weather, causing catastrophic flooding or blows equally devastating winds. Finally, the typical hurricane season extends from early June to the end of October, but can extend until the end of November.
GUAM Climate : The climate of Guam is a pleasantly warm tropical climate all year round. The average annual and constant temperature is 82°F as the temperature of the bathing water.

NEW CALEDONIA Climate : From December to March: it is the hot season, known as cyclone season. The intertropical zone of convergence is then located in the southern hemisphere, its mean position oscillating around the 15th parallel. During this season, the formation of about ten (on average) tropical disturbances occurs in the area between the southern equator and eastern Australia. These perturbations, at first more or less stationary, then have an erratic trajectory. They cause torrential rains and winds that increase with the importance of the phenomenon. April and May: it is a transitional season. The area of inter-tropical convergence rises towards the north. Tropical disturbances are rare and generally not very active. Rainfall decreases and temperatures decrease significantly. from June to August: it's the cool season. The intertropical convergence zone is located in the northern hemisphere. The cold fronts of perturbations of polar origin cross the Tasman Sea and sometimes reach the territory. Their passage is accompanied by precipitation often abundant, especially on the south of the Grande Terre and a burst of west wind blowing sometimes in storm. This peculiarity gave them the name of Â« coups d'ouest Â». The temperature of the air passes through its annual minimum between mid-July and mid-August. September to November: it is a transitional season. The zone of inter-tropical convergence descends to the south, crossing the equator. The subtropical anticyclonic belt, which then reaches its maximum importance, protects our regions from disturbances of polar origin. The trade wind blows almost permanently, it is the most beautiful period of the year, but it is also the dry season, favorable to the bushfires.
PANAMA Climate : Tropical maritime climate, hot, humid, cloudy, rainy season (May to January), short dry season (January to May).

REUNION ISLAND Climate : Located in the south-western part of the Indian Ocean, Reunion Island remains for most of the year under the influence of trade winds led by the semi-permanent high pressure of the Indian Ocean. The intensity and characteristics of these dominant southeastern trade winds vary according to the season. During the southern winter (May to November), this anticyclone is most often centered in the southern neighborhood of the Mascarenes and its action can extend to the equator. The generally stable trade wind flow results in relatively cool and dry weather in many places, despite some rainfall associated with frontal system passages. During the southern summer (December to April) the high pressure is moving towards the south, and the Mascarenes are interested only by its northern border. The zone of low intertropical pressures, along the thermal equator, moves southwards and directly influences these regions.
