Temperate Forests are located in many places in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Some places where Temperate Forests can be found are China, Japan, South Africa, Chile. The continents which include parts of this biome is North America, Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa. the average temperature of temperate rain forests is around 20 to 10 degrees Celsius. The average precipitation is around 250cm.

Climate:
In an average year in a temperate rain forest, the climate is very moderate because of all the rainfall, which amounts to about over 250 cm per year. The temperate rain forest has lots of rainfall, but is very moist and wet which supports growth for mosses. This climate is found near the equator. That means that there is more direct sunlight hitting the land and sea there than anywhere else. The sun warms the land and sea and the water evaporates into the air. The air can hold a lot of water vapor. As the air rises, it cools. The seasons usually are regular. Sping is warm and a little chilly. Winters are cold, and falls are moderate. Summers are hot, but never dry since there is such a high ammount of precipitation fall. It rains more than ninety days a year and the strong sun usually shines between the storms. overall, the temperate is very moderate, but can vary due to seasonal changes.


. The average annual temperature of a temperate rain forest is obviously above 0° C, largely influenced by the nearby ocean. The warmest of the temperate rain forests may have average annual temperatures around 20° C.
