Temperature, probability of rain, clouds and ultraviolet rays are some of the information that you should know before leaving home. (Infobae/Jovani Pérez)
The type of climate that exists in a certain place is determined by different conditions, among which are the altitude, latitude, orientation of the relief, distance to the sea and marine currents and gives guidelines to the so-called “weather weather” which in turn is supported by in other elements such as temperature, pressure, wind, humidity and precipitation to delineate the atmospheric conditions in a territory in a short term.
To catalog the climate, the system developed by Wladimir Köppen is generally used, although there is also the Thornthwaite system, the latter which also takes into account biological diversity and the effects of climate change on it. Others, such as Bergeron and Spacial Synoptic, focus on the origin of the air masses that define the climate of a region.
Due to climate change, the planet is currently undergoing a redistribution process in which any modification, however minimal, in the average annual temperature causes changes in habitats and their conditions.
In this context, here we leave you the weather for Cuzco.
In Cuzco, a maximum temperature of 18 degrees Celsius and a minimum of 8 degrees Celsius are expected.
As for rain, the probability of precipitation for this city will be 61% during the day and 72% throughout the night.
In the same sense, the cloudiness will be 86% during the day and 100% during the night. While the gusts of wind will reach 30 kilometers per hour in the day and 15 kilometers per hour at night.
Cusco is one of the departments that registers the most climates in Peru, with 16 types, characterized by a rainy, temperate weather state and with a lack of humidity, mainly in autumn and winter.
In the north of the department, where the city of Cusco is located, the predominant climate is temperate, with abundant rain and humidity throughout the year.

The climate in Peru
In Peruvian territory, up to 38 types of weather are felt, according to the National Meteorology and Hydrology Service (Senamhi), this as a result of the interaction between different climatic and geographical factors.
These main factors, details the Senamhi, are its geographical position in the Tropic of Capricorn and the proximity of the Andes Mountains.
Of the 38 climates, Senamhi highlights three main ones that are defined according to the area of the country in which they are located.
On the coast of the South American country, which meets the Pacific Ocean and covers barely 11.6% of the national territory, the prevailing weather is arid and temperate, its main climatic characteristic being the scarcity of rain.
In the mountains, the area close to the Andes Mountains and which occupies 28.1% of the Peruvian territory, the climate is mainly rainy and cold.
While in the jungle, where the tropical climate of Peru is most fulfilled, occupying 60.3% of its surface, the weather is defined as very rainy and warm.
