What is a microclimate?

We speak of a microclimate when the conditions on a small scale are different than you would expect based on the climate. Geography, vegetation, urbanisation, wind direction and sometimes also human intervention can have an influence on the temperature, the number of hours of sunshine and the amount of precipitation.

The city of San Francisco is a good example of a microclimate. Due to altitude differences and the influence of the sea, temperature variations may rise by up to 5°C in different neighbourhoods.
