Climatic conditions differ in every area. There are various factors affecting the climates around the world. Some of the major factors influencing climatic changes are the distance of the place from the sea, the ocean currents, the direction of wind prevailing in each area, the relief features, the area's proximity to the Equator and the El Nino phenomenon and its effect on the changes in climatic conditions in each area of the world.

The distance of a place from the sea is known as continentiality. The sea plays a major role in affecting the climate of a place. Coastal areas are cooler and wetter than areas that are located farther away from the sea. This cold and wet weather is known in geographical terms as moderate climate. Clouds are formed when the cooler air from the coastal areas meets the warmer air from the inland areas.

The centre of continents experience frequent fluctuations in temperatures. In the summer, the weather at the centre of a continent is hot and dry because the moisture from the sea evaporates before it reaches the centre of the continent.

We have not had sunamis or tornados "yet" that does not mean that they are not going to be possible in the future. The wind gathers the moisture and the temperature from the surface of the oceans/lakes/streams and blows/brings/carries them into the state/continent. You have to take into effect the weather patterns from the other countries/continents as well coming from the north/south/east/west at different times of the years as the weather patterns change the storms and temperatures change. If I am not mistaken which has to do with our position/orbit whether we are closer or farther distance from the sun at different times of the year. The simplest way to think of it is as a boiling pot of water the sun heats or lets cool a area on the earth producing what are called thermal(hot and cold pockets of moving air and moisture) creating an circulation pattern for the air and moisture over different areas at different times and temperatures as the wind moves these patterns over different areas they collide (warm /cold fronts) creating storms or releasing the energy of the fronts forming rain /snow/high winds/storms. Like when we have blizzards/tornadoes/winter /spring storms.

Here it is!
Water absorbs traces of Almost every thing it comes in contact with! That's a Fact!
This includes heat and cold too! So the currents created by waves and currents of the world relocate these temps through out the world!
This includes the BAD things in the air too! (global warming)
This effect is most profound at the North and South Poles, and these colder temps slowly move to the Equator absorbing all these warmer than normal temps, and then go up to the air, and travel back to the poles,as warmer than is normal temps!
Now it starts all over again!
This is called by Science "The Chorales Effect", and this is as SIMPLE as I can explain it, but there's a lot more!
This is compounding Global Warming by moving the Bad Pollution from one Continent to another with currents and wind, to in could the Jet Stream!
Plus it makes the tornadoes turn one way in the North and South of the Equator it turn the other!
The winds are relocating these things, and the temps too!
This Effect is totally excepted by the Science world!
This is Science made easy for you to grasp!
So your simple question involves a lot of things!
