FIGURE 8.3 Climographs for humid continental, hot-summer climate stations.

What are the reasons for the differences in temperature and precipitation between the two stations?

To determine

The reason for the difference in temperature and precipitation between the two stations.

Explanation

The summer and winter temperatures throughout humid continental regions are affected by the degree of continentality and the range of temperature. The range of annual temperature is consistently large, and it becomes progressively larger toward the poles and continental interiors. Due to small marine influences, the temperature may be modified mainly near the coasts. As a result, the temperatures are milder than those at comparable latitudes. Similar effects can be caused by large lakes as well. It can also be influenced by the size of the continents...
