Geography’s Impact

Miami is closer to the equator than any other contiguous state so it gets much warmer. Florida is only 100 feet above sea level and that means Florida has a low altitude. Florida has mostly flat land so the temperature doesn't vary throughout the state. Florida is a coastal state, surrounded by ocean so it acts like a giant air conditioning system, and that keeps the weather moderate because it is a peninsula, it gets a lot of humidity. Florida is in the South East of the U.S.
