2. Factors that influence climate
Four factors can influence climate:
: The distance from the equator.
Places near the equator are hotter than places near the poles.
: The height above the sea level.
Places at higher altitude are usually cooler and have more rainfall than places at a lower altitude.
: Changes in ground level.
Mountains can stop sea air from reaching inland areas and clouds must go higher, which causes precipitation
The distance from the sea
Coastal places are cooler in summer and warmer in winter than inland areas.
