I don't think we need to know this, was it on the rule sheet?

Yeah, he/she is talking about a Climograph, which is on the rules..

Oooooo, I don't think you would need to match it to a city. Matching to like a specific biome seems more likely to appear.
To answer your question, know where the city is located and if the weather seems to match the place. I hope there are choices because coming up with one city seems too cruel.

Perhaps (hopefully) the city will be labled on a map, and from there you'll already know what factors affect the city's climate, and matching the climograph to the city will be a breeze :D
Goodbye Science Olympiad, until next year.

I actually have had questions like that where you have to match the right climograph to the right city.. But there are choices, thank gosh :P

So I have state in 10 days, and I am supposed to medal...a gold. Since I have to do eight other events not including this one, I really need to prioritize.
Anything I really HAVE to know before anything else? Priorities?

Check the Meteorology Wiki... Climate is VERY hard.

WAIT! You have nine events? That sounds like a lot to me. :o

Start with the difference between weather and climate. Then do the Koppen Classification. After that, El nino and La Nina. Those are topics that appear commonly appear on Climate tests.

All right, thank you.
Yes, I have 9 events. Not that terribly much, I suppose.
