temperate continental climate
Abstract:Urbana has a temperate continental climate dominated by maritime tropical air from the Gulf of Mexico from about May through October, maritime polar air from the Pacific Ocean in spring, fall and winter, with short-duration incursions of continental polar air from Canada in winter. Mid-winter high temperatures are typically in the 30s (°F), whereas summer highs are usually in the 80s, with lows about 20F lower. Spring and fall are composed of a mix of winter- and summer-like days, with rather large day-to-day temperature fluctuations common. The greatest day-to-day changes in temperature occur in late fall, winter and early spring.
