The climate of Charleston (South Carolina - United States of America)
Charleston is located on the coast of South Carolina. The city is located at the mouths of several rivers and is located in a calm bay. Charleston is a beautiful historic city and is very popular among tourists. Charleston was one of the first places on the east coast where colonists settled, many well preserved remains dating back to this period can be found in the city. During the 18th and 19th century the cotton plantations brought a lot of prosperity to its owners who built large villas in the city. These beautiful old houses take you back to the atmosphere of the old south. Charleston was also one of the first cities along the coast that allowed freedom of religion. Because of this many old churches and several synagogues can be found here. Nowadays Charleston is one of the largest cities in South Carolina. Charleston has a warm maritime climate characterized by high precipitation figures all year round. Because of the influence of the ocean cold winters are uncommon. During the winter temperatures only drop a few degrees below freezing point. Summers are warm and wet. The ocean has a tempering influence causing temperatures to remain between 20-30 degrees Celsius (68-86 degrees Fahrenheit).
