Weather
Antarctica is the world's coldest, windiest and driest continent. The lowest temperature ever recorded on earth was -89.6ºF, at the Antarctica's Russian Vostok station on the inland ice cap. All this said, during the summer months, the temperatures are surprisingly comfortable, averaging between 20º and 50ºF. Expect wind, and perhaps precipitation, but also be ready for brilliant sunshine.
