  Temperate Climate
Temperate climates are those without extremes of temperature and precipitation (rain and snow).
The maritime climate is strongly influenced by the oceans, which maintain fairly steady temperatures across the seasons.
This is particularly true in North America, where the north-south aligned Rocky Mountains act as a climate barrier to the mild maritime air blowing from the west.

Climate refers to the average weather that occurs across the surface of the earth.
Climates vary dramatically from one region of the earth to the next, ranging from the warm, humid conditions found along the equator, to the hot deserts and cold polar regions.
The boundary between the Humid Equatorial climate of Subsaharan Africa with its abundant rainfall and the dry climate of North Africa with its low rainfall is a rather abrupt geographic boundary.

 Climate of Virginia
Climate changes gradually over the decades, and it requires many measurements to document if we are trending towards an ice age or global warming.
According to the climate classification system developed by Wladimir Köppen and refined by Glen Trewartha, Virginia's climate has a "mild mid-latitude" climate, and is in the subcategory of "Humid subtropical." It is coded "Cfa" on the Köppen classification system because the climate is mild, with no dry season and a hot summer.
Compare climate of today vs. the climate of the Pleistocene 18,000 years ago (when Pennsylvania was half-buried by ice) vs. the end of the Paleozoic 250 million years ago (when massive coal deposits formed), and the contrast will be clear.

 The Environmental Literacy Council - Latitude & Climate Zones
For example, the higher the latitude of a given place (the farther away it is from the equator), the sharper the angle of the sun's rays that reach it, meaning that the rays of the sun are spread across a broader area.
These climate variations increase the further an area is from an ocean or another large body of water; they diminish in areas where oceans and other large bodies of water are able to influence the climate more strongly.
Although there are different classifications of world climates, many of these sub-climates include low latitude tropical rainforest and tropical savanna; middle latitude maritime, mediterranean, and steppe; high latitude subarctic, tundra, and polar ice cap; as well as desert and highland areas.

 BBC - Weather Centre - Features - Weather Basics - Temperate Climate Zone
The hallmark of temperate zones is a relatively small fluctuation in temperature between seasons with rain that generally falls all year round.
Again, temperate zones which are further inland will tend to get a considerable amount of their rainfall during the summer from convection, that is when the sun heats the ground sufficiently to cause moist air to rise, forming clouds and then rain.
Temperate zones, such as Europe, get more of their rain in the winter from the effect of low-pressure zones coming in from the Atlantic driven by the prevailing westerlies.

The overall climate of the province is marked by considerable seasonality and volatility, often with short-term changes to the weather patterns that can be difficult to predict.
Because the province extends across a considerable span of latitude (46.5-60.5°N) and longitude (from the continental interior of western Labrador to the southeastern peninsulas of the island with their exposure to the sea), the timing, duration and climatic character of the seasons varies substantially across the province.

The region has a tropical monsoon climate in the far south, a humid, cool, temperate climate in the north, and a desert climate or steppe climate in the west and the northWest.
In the rest of the area-where most of the population of the region is concentrated-a humid, temperate climate prevails.

The climate is humid and subtropical in the southern plains and foothills, temperate in the inner Himalayan valleys of the southern and central regions, and cold in the north, with year-round snow on the main Himalayan summits.
In the south, a hot, humid climate helps maintain a fairly even temperature range of between 15° C and 30° C year-round, although temperatures sometimes reach 40° C in the valleys during the summer.
