**Note to editors:**Please don't categorize this template by editing it directly. Instead, place the category in its documentation page, in its "includeonly" section.**Template:Climate** formats simple climate info. Give it Metric or Imperial units of measure depending which is appropriate for the location you describe.

Part of **Project:Climate Expedition**.

## Usage[edit]

**Note**: For US destinations http://mountaininterval.org/wikivoyage/climate.html can be used to automatically generate {{climate}} templates populated with data from the NOAA monthly normal dataset (1981-2010) that can then be copied into Wikivoyage articles.

**Template parameters**:

- units
- Either "metric" or "imperial". Set
**units = Metric**if the table is using Metric units (Celsius and centimeters) or to**units = Imperial**for Imperial units (Fahrenheit and inches). Please use units of measure appropriate to the location the page describes (Imperial in USA but Metric almost everywhere else) per Project:Measurements. - align
- Either "right", "left", "center" or "none". Default is "right". A value of "none" will display the table inline.
- xxxhigh
- The average high temperature for the month.
- xxxlow
- The average low temperature for the month.
- xxxprecip
- The average rainfall amount for the month.
- description
- Optional text that will be displayed at the bottom of the climate table. This field is often used to include the {{forecastNOAA}} daily forecast or other information related to the climate data.

**Copy and paste** the below wiki markup into a page and give values to as many of the parameters as you wish to use (empty parameters will be gracefully ignored by the template).

### Related templates[edit]

- {{forecast}} - Given a latitude and longitude, this template will provide a link to a National Weather Service website that provides an up-to-date weather forecast for the specified locale. This feature is only available for U.S. locales.
- {{forecastNOAA}} - The same as {{forecast}}, but it is for inline use and only generates the link to the NOAA forecast.
