Climates in the Pacific

Most islands in the Pacific lie in the tropics and are warm almost all year round. The average temperature near the equator is 81 degrees fahrenheit and 73 degrees fahrenheit near the tropics. Also, areas where there are mountains and higher islands are a bit cooler. In fact, the tallest mountains in Hawaii, New Zealand, New Guinea have snow on them all year round. Most islands also have a wet and dry season.
