How does closeness to water affect temperature?
Closeness to water refers to the distance a place is from the ocean. It can affect temperature because during winter time the land but oceans are still warm. When winds blow over the warm ocean it absorbs the heat from the water. As the warm winds pass over the colder land it will raise the temperature over the land. Therefore, places closer to oceans have milder winters then places farther from oceans which will have more extreme winters.
