Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A humid continental climate is a climatic region typified by large seasonal temperature differences, with warm to hot summers, and cold winters. Precipitation is relatively well-distributed year-round in many areas, while others may see a marked reduction in wintry precipitation and even a wintertime drought. Snowfall, regardless of average seasonal totals, occurs in all areas with a humid continental climate and is in many such places more common than rain during the height of winter. In places with sufficient wintertime precipitation the snow cover is often deep. Most summer rainfall occurs during thunderstorms and a very occasional tropical system. Though humidity levels are often high in locations with humid continental climates, it is important to note that the "humid" designation only denotes that the climate is not dry enough to be classified semi-arid or arid, not that humidity levels are necessarily high.
