Antarctica Weather

In case you don’t know, Antarctica is the coldest, windiest and driest continent in the whole world.

It does sound bleak and uninviting to say the least.

That is why its harsh unforgiving weather has kept human travelers away until the 19th century.

You can’t survive there without a warm shelter and extreme winter wear.

In the summer it gets a little better but some times you can occasionally get the snow and wind bearing down as well.

With such harsh weather, it is no wonder that there are no flowering plants in Antarctica .

It is colder than the Arctic where humans have lived since prehistoric times.
