The results showed there was a direct correlation between mortality and some of climate parameters (humidity, pressure, and precipitation) while this correlation for sunshine and temperature (minimum, maximum and average) was reversed .Among three diseases cardiovascular showed the greatest sensitivity to climate parameters. T-test results also showed that there are significant differences (p
