Gee it's hot
in Brazil! The tropics always get my direct rays!
Low Latitude = high Temp
Middle Latitudes= seasonal temperature
Higher latitudes= lower temperature

Let’s draw this!

75 °at bottom

Water and land heat and cool at different rates which affects temperature and precipitation.
When a place is completely surrounded by
land. (landlocked) and away from water!
St. Louis is hotter than Houston in the Summer
Experiment: Bucket of sand vs. a bucket of water. Which one will heat up quicker and will have a higher temperature?
O = Ocean Currents
Cold water moves away from the poles
North Atlantic Drift
S- Storms. Seasonal storms will greatly influence the climate of a place.
Hurricanes- Atlantic O, Gulf of Mexico
Typhoons- Pacific O.
Cyclones- Indian O.
Monsoons- the seasonal shift in winds that affect South Asia.
