What is the climate of the Northern European Plains?
Chilly yet warm climate near the same climate in spring and winter.
sunny Most of the Great Plains region has a semiarid climate, with a wide range of temperature and little rainfall. The semiarid climate does not provide enough precipitation to support trees in much of the region where the natural vegetation is mostly grassland, but in northern regions the summers are short and cool and the sparse precipitation is enough to support a coniferous forest.
A major difference between the Italian and Northern Renaissance has to do with the medium. Italy has a much warmer climate than Northern Europe so the painters of the Italian Renaissanceâ??s favored egg tempera cured well in it. The climate of Northern Europe did not mix well with egg tempera so northern European artists turned to and developed oil paints.
