The climate of Alabama (United
States of America)
Alabama is one of the states of the United States of America and is
situated in the southeastern part of the United States. Where slavery
and racism are concerned Alabama has an illustrious history. The
cultivation of cotton has always been one of the main sources of
income for Alabama. Although slavery was abolished a long time ago
racism remains a real problem in Alabama and several of its
surrounding states. Race murders, discrimination and segregation seem
to be unexterminable elements in the society of Alabama.
Alabama has a warm Mediterranean climate with mild
winters and warm summers. Summers here are among the hottest in the
United States. Average temperatures during the warmest months June,
July and August are about 32-33 degrees Celsius (89.6-91.4 degrees
Fahrenheit). During the summer peaks in temperatures of 39 degrees
Celsius (102 degrees Fahrenheit) are not uncommon. However, hot
summers do not guarantee summer weather. The sun shines about 9 hours
per day. Because of its relatively warm climate vegetation in the
southern part of the state grows for 300 days per year.
During the second part of the year there is a risk of
tropical storms and hurricanes in Alabama. Although Alabama is
officially located outside Hurricane Alley and the number of
“twisters” that occur here is low there is a risk of damage or even
casualties caused by tornadoes. This is because the highest number of
tornadoes of the highest category (F5) can be recorded here.
