Why not let the Climate Finder help you decide where to go on vacation?

Whereas several websites let you look up the climate of a particular place, very few let you do the reverse, i.e. find the places that match specific climate conditions. And those that do mostly only allow searching on temperature, and only for a single month. ClimateFinder.com has far more flexible search features.

The Climate Finder feature lets the user choose a climate that is "hot and sunny", "warm and pleasant", "cool and comfortable" or "snowy and sunny", for any month of the year, and displays the places that match.

The Advanced Search feature allows the user to set upper and lower bounds for each of the following climate variables:

  • Average daily minimum temperature over the month
  • Average daily maximum temperature over the month
  • Average daily temperature over the month
  • The number of days with precipitation (>0.1mm) over the month
  • The number of days with ground frost over the month
  • Monthly precipitation
  • Average relative humidity over the month
  • Average sunshine, as a proportion of daylight hours, over the month
  • Average wind speed over the month

The criteria (upper and lower bounds) can relate to any month or combination or months.

ClimateFinder.com works with both metric and imperial units; Celsius or Fahrenheit for temperatures, millimeters or inches for precipitation and meters per second, kilometers per hour or miles per hour for wind speed.

When using the Advanced Search feature, it is a good idea to specify only a few requirements to start with. Otherwise you might find that there are no places on earth that match your criteria!

The locations in the ClimateFinder.com database pretty well cover the globe. Most countries, and all continents with the exception of Antarctica, are represented.
