Climate and Average Weather in Antarctica

The continent Antarctica covers a large area around the South Pole at the most southern point of the earth. The climate in Antarctica is very extreme and it is the coldest place on our planet. The whole of Antarctica has an ice cap climate. Antarctica is also an extremely dry and windy area. The closer you get to the coast, the stronger the wind.
