But during the summer, temperatures are affected as much by altitude as by latitude, and the coast is cooled at night by breezes from the Gulf.
It is, however, less oppressive, as cool breezes prevail and damp is comparatively rare.
Autumn is warmer than spring, especially in the coastal regions, and this is exaggerated in the eastern region by local land winds, which replace the cool sea-breezes of summer: overcoats are ordinarily worn in Spain and Italy till July, and are then put aside till October.
At this station much lower values were found for A with sea breezes than with land breezes.
There are brisk diurnal sea-breezes, and seasonal trades and counter-trades.
