Temperate Rainforest Climate

So what is temperate rainforest climate like?

Firstly, it is much cooler than the climate for tropical rainforest.

The average temperatures in places where temperate rainforests grow, is between 4 and 12 degrees C.

But these forests still need more rain than other temperate forests.

The rainfall in temperate rainforests is about 1400mm a year.

As opposed to tropical rainforests, which grow in areas with minimal seasonal changes, temperate rainforests grow in much higher latitudes.
