"Situated in the tropics, temperatures in Rio can be high, but due to the presence of the Serra do Mar, a wide variety of climate variations are not unusual in Rio, including both precipitation and temperature. On the shore, the thermometer can get as high as 40 centigrade (104 Fahrenheit), and can descend to 18 centigrade or 64 Fahrenheit when it gets chilly. Areas in the mountain regions, Paraty and Itaipava, are cooler and there is more rain. Like Bahia, cold spells move in occasional.
