Climate in the generally used sense is determined by physical conditions over which man has no control, namely: latitude, prevailing wind, topography, and nearness to the ocean or continental interior. Locally, certain elements of climate, such as temperature, wind, evaporation, and rainfall, are modified by altitude, topography, direction of exposure, bodies of water, and vegetation. The extent of these modifications defines and characterizes the local climate.
