What is weather?
 Local or short term
changes in temperature,
rainfall, wind, cloud cover
What is climate?
 The average weather

moderate (cool or warm)
nearby coastal
landmasses
How does latitude affect the
amount of solar radiation
(direct sunlight)?
 As latitude increases,
there is a decrease of
solar radiation.
