The Jade Coast Metropolitan Area experiences a tropical wet and dry climate, although isolated microclimates exist. The southern portion of Castine is the wettest in the nation and the Jade Coast receives an abundance of rainfall during its relatively lengthy wet season, which runs from April through November. The dry season, although short, is very pronounced, and it is not uncommon for most weather stations in the area to record no precipitation at all in January and February. This climate results in a heavily wooded terrain of mixed evergreen and deciduous forest, with the deciduous trees losing their foliage during the dry season. The exception to this are the slopes of the Weeping Peaks and other highlands where evergreen tropical jungle dominates.
