The climate of a region can be influenced by many factors in the area. The strength of the sun can affect the climate and weather. The latitude shows the location of the climate. The further away the location is from the equator, the higher the temperature. Wind and ocean currents provide cooler temperatures. Atmospheric pressure is associated with elevation. The pressure will decrease when elevation increases.

So, when there is less pressure, the temperature would most likely be cooler. Precipitation also affects climate. The location of a place may determine how much and the kind of precipitation in a certain climate. If a city is located is the north, there is a greater chance of having a snowy precipitation than a location closer to the equator.
