The climate of the United States varies due to differences in latitude, and a range of geographic features, including mountains and deserts. As in most land masses located in the middle and lower-middle latitudes, the primary drivers of weather in the contiguous United States are the seasonal change in the solar angle, the migration north/south of the subtropical highs, and the seasonal change in the position of the polar jet stream.
