World Cities by Climate

This is the list of cities by climate. The grouping follows the Köppen climate classification, which has been standard in climate science for about a century and is named after its inventor, Wladimir Köppen.

The codes are either 2 or 3 letters in length, with the first letter indicating the main climate group: A (tropical), B (dry), C (temperate), D (continental), and E (polar). The second letter describes the type of seasonal precipitation and the third letter describes the variations of temperature in the zone.
