What is the average climate in Antarctica ? – Travel & PlacesReport
The climate of Antarctica is the coldest on Earth, the lowest
temperature ever recorded on Earth being −89.2 °C (−128.6 °F) at
Vostok Station. It is also extremely dry (technically a desert). On
most parts of the continent the snow rarely melts and is eventually
compressed to become the glacial ice that makes up the ice sheet.
Most of Antarctica has an ice sheet climate with very cold,
generally extremely dry weather throughout the year and no month
averaging above 0 °C (32 °F).
Some fringe northwestern coastal areas of the peninsula have a
polar climate with a short summer averaging above freezing, and
much higher precipitation.
Technically, Antarctica is a polar desert.
