Oceans have a moderating effect on temperature. They have what is known scientifically as a large heat capacity, larger than that of the dry land. It takes a great deal of energy to heat up an ocean, so they do not heat up as quickly as the land does, and then once they heat up, they remain warm longer than the land does. As a result, temperatures tend to be less extreme in coastal regions. The ocean can keep them warm in cold weather, and keep them cool in hot weather, to some degree. Inland regions, such as the central plains of North America, do not have this moderating influence, being far from the ocean.
