Sydney and Buenos Aires are at higher latitudes than Rio de Janeiro, while on average Rio is much hotter than both during summer, both recorded slightly higher extremes:

Rio de Janeiro: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_de_Janeiro#Climate

Buenos Aires: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buenos_Aires#Climate

Sydney: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climat...y#Climate_data

Do this have something to do with latitude, or maybe the closeness to arid climates of BA and Sydney ?

As we know, tropical regions receive more direct sun, while subtropics receive more sun hours during summer.

Its all because of stability. Tropics are far more stable than the higher latitudes

I totally disagree, the tropics are far more unstable than the temperate zones.



(I know Florida is subtropical, but i can assure you, by living in the tropics, that this is absolutely true, it happened here twice today).

Im talking about temperature swings and diurnal ranges.

I agree with Muslim12,Here in Northeast where i live,you must know Pedrinho,you almost never see my region in news due to crazy weather.

Most things who happen in our contry talking about weather are from Southeast/South.

Higher sun angle and longer daylight hours in the subtropics compared to the deep tropics, in the summer, and high humidity keep the deep tropics record high cooler (hardly any 35C/95F+ heatwaves)

Diurnal range has nothing to do with latitude, it is related to topography, humidity and elevation.

Tropical places can have high diurnal temperature ranges and temperature swings, here where i live the average diurnal range is 10c.

Sure, as more land is located in temperate regions, more climatic variation exists, so you have more extreme climates.

Higher latitudes have greater seasonal temperature ranges, but what i am asking is: do more sun hours in higher latitudes summer leads to more heat than more direct sun in tropics ?

Sorry for my engrish.

Well, this is true only for ITCZ, not for the entire tropics.
