Seasons on the equator vary, and depending with the position of the equator, you are at. Night, Day and Seasons are determined by the proximity of where you live to the equator. There are 14 land and territorial waters where the equator crosses. By living on the equator, you will get to experience very quick rates of the sunrise as well as sunset in minutes. Living in this place means that you leave in a place with a constant twelve hours of day and night as compared to the time while living in the north or south of the equator where the length of the day varies with the seasons.
The sun passes directly over the equator twice a year, which is on March and September, which is part of its seasonal movement through the sky. People always have a misguided notion that the weather on the equator is the same throughout the year. This is not so because while some tropical areas are experiencing wet and dry seasons others can be wet for the whole year .In as much as the temperatures on the equator can go up high, there is an area at the equator you can find snow.
The change in seasons are more dependent on the place or region one is in. Therefore weather conditions become barely discernable and have little variations, while the warm summers become discernable from the balmy winters. Radiation is constantly received where the equatorial region has the outer curve of the earth formed. In this case, equatorial therefore have hot summers while tropical regions experience icier winters.
Where its hot
There is no doubt that Africa is one of the hottest places in the world, but it is not exclusively the only place. The rest of the world has its own share of the heat. However, logically speaking the temperatures around the equatorial plane is high but it is also the places that experience very heavy down pours which causes the temperature to cool.
The myth and concept that the hottest place in the earth is around the equator while the coolest is on the poles is completely a misguided concept. The desert is hotter because as the temperature rise and it does not rain then the temperature will keep rising as opposed to the equatorial regions where the temperature rise but it is broken and cooled down by rain.
The climate around the equator
Equatorial regions always receives hot climate a little seasonal variations, in this case receiving only two seasons which are wet and dry. The wet season which is also known as the rainy season goes for most of the year. These long warm but rainy seasons are the seasons that are responsible for the creation of the tropical rain forests. Nevertheless not all equatorial regions are humid and hot. Some areas like Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is very close to the equator. The climate there is cool and dry due to its elevation.
