Even though they are different, all Tropical Rain Forests have to have lots of three things to grow: light, heat, and moisture. The temperature of the Tropical Rain Forest is warm because of its location in the Tropics with an average temperature of 25oC.There are 2 seasons:warm season,and cool season . Right on the Equator in the heart of Amazon, Indonesia,and New Guinea these 2 seasons don't change noticeably. But farther away from the Equator temperatures vary by 6oC. Also In Asia, Australia and Africa they have more pronounced seasons. The warm season is wet and the cool season is dry. Most of the rain falls during the wet or warm season. In South America, New Guinea, and Indonesia the Rain Forest receives 125-660 cm of precipitation every year with a humidity of 83% on average. In Asia, Australia,and some parts of Africa the warm season gets around 300cm of rainfall and in the cool season there is 160cm of rainfall.
