My city that I researched is Granbury, Texas.
Granbury is in a small town in Texas, so this makes it cooler and less polluted than if it were a big city.
for this project I interviewed my grandparents they have lived there for about 5 years and they are right on the lake.
They said that this week there it was a lot cooler than it usual and pretty rainy
Temperatures, Season, Wind
Right now Granbury is ending Winter and just about to start Spring.
Also during the week the highest wind speed was 9MPH and all through the week the speeds went up then down.
What was the precipitation and humidity like and over all climate?
The humidity average was 80% but the highest was 95% and that was on Sunday.
The overall climate for this town is sunny, cool, cloudy, and dry.
Latitude and Prevailing winds
So this means it is in the horse latitude (high pressure)
horse latitude includes the latitudes that are 30-35` both north and south, this area releases little precipitation. This affects the climate by making the area hot and dry.
Granbury is closer to the middle, this affects the climate by giving it a mix of all the different types of precipitation.
tornadoes happen around here because, of the climate how it is cloudy and dry.
since it is a small town a few hours outside of Dallas there are no mountains.
Granbury is not close to an ocean but it is on a lake (lake Granbury), this can affect the climate be not making it as humid.
I think if this city were to move closer to an ocean it would become more humid.
