The climate of New Orleans (Louisiana - United States of America)
New Orleans is located in the southeastern part of the state of Louisiana on the banks of the Mississippi River. New Orleans is the largest city in the state of Louisiana and is also known as The Big Easy. Both the New Orleans Saints (NFL) and the New Orleans Hornets (NBA) play their home matches in New Orleans. The city is also known for its annual carnival: New Orleans Mardi Gras. During hurricane Katrina in 2005 about 80% of the city got flooded. Almost the entire city had to be evacuated. In the city of New Orleans alone more than 1,500 people lost their lives. New Orleans has a warm maritime climate characterized by cool and mild winters and warm summers. During the summer temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) are not uncommon. High temperatures in combination with high precipitation figures cause humidity figures to be high as well. During the winter subzero temperatures are not uncommon. However, subzero temperatures mainly occur during the night . There is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes in New Orleans.
