The climate of Yosemite National Park (California - United States of America)
Yosemite National Park is located in the eastern part of California in the Sierra Nevada. Yosemite National Park is one of the oldest national parks in America and has been a Unesco preservation site for years. Yosemite National Park is mainly known for the mammoth trees, or sequoia that grow here and the spectacular granite mountains and cliffs that can be found here. The park is very popular among active people. Most tourists spend a few days or weeks to explore this park and go on long hikes or go rock climbing. During the winter it is very nice to go skiing in the Badger Pass Ski Area. Yosemite Park has a Mediterranean climate with mild and wet winters. During the other seasons hardly any precipitation falls. Because of the differences in altitude rain is pushed up the mountains to an altitude of 2,400 meters. In the higher regions snow falls all year round. However, only during the winter a thick layer of snow forms. Very heavy thunderstorms are not uncommon here. These thunderstorms may cause forest fires. The figures below apply to the lower situated regions of the park. The higher you travel the colder it gets.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period.
