This study is aimed to be a contribution to climatic regionalization of Saudi Arabia. The data used here have been obtained from 56 meteorological stations. The results obtained by a multivariate factor-cluster analysis are compared with those of some traditional methods. They produce richer regions and show clear climate variations within this vast country
