Tropics (from the Greek. "Turning circle") - the climatic zone of the planet. The tropics are characterized by a hot climate, hotter than at the equator, little rainfall and little cloud cover. In the tropics, it is customary to distinguish not four, but two seasons: the rainy season (winter) and the dry season (summer). The average temperature of the "winter" rarely drops below +10 ° С, and in the "summer" it fluctuates within +35 ° С. At the same time, several abnormally hot "spots" stand out, the temperature in which often rises to + 53 ... + 58 ° С.
