There are three main factors that affect the elements of climate and weather. These are the latitude, the distance from the coastline and the altitude.

Latitude

Latitude has an effect on temperature. The temperature is lower and lower from the Equator to the Poles because the angle of the Sun rays becomes less and less.

The distance from the coastline

The distance from the coastline has an effect on temperature. The distance from the coastline increases, the summer will be warmer, the winter will be colder and the amount of the rainfall decreases.

Altitude

Altitude has an effect on temperature. The temperature gets colder with increased altitude, 1°C every 200 m. Altitude has an effect on rainfall. There is more rain in the mountains.
