Do you want to know about the Time zones and weather divisions in the USA ?
Posted on June 4, 2020
Time in the United States, by law, is divided into six standard time zones covering the states, territories and other US possessions, with most of the United States observing daylight saving time (DST) for approximately the spring, summer, and fall months.
The United States is spread across six time zones. From west to east, they are Hawaii, Alaska, Pacific, Mountain, Central, and Eastern.

There are 344 climate divisions in the CONUS (Continental US). For each climate division, monthly station temperature and precipitation values are computed from the daily observations. The divisional values are weighted by area to compute state wide values and the state wide values are weighted by area to compute regional values.
The U.S. is typically grouped into five different regions: The Northeast, the Southwest, the West, the Southeast and the Midwest. USA climate varies dramatically by region.
The area could be split even further into three types of climate: coastal Mediterranean climates, Desert climates and Mountainous alpine climates. In all three of these areas, summers are hot and dry.
There are 4 major climate zones:
- Tropical zone from 0°–23.5° (between the tropics)
- Subtropics from 23.5°–40°
- Temperate zone from 40°–60°
- Cold zone from 60°–90°
The six major climate regions are polar, temperate, arid, tropical, Mediterranean and tundra.
