Cause/Effect

Cause

Effect

heat loss
This is the transfer of heat from your body to the environment. The colder it is, the more heat is lost.
cold weather
severe low temperatures vary with latitude, elevation, and distance from the ocean;
East Antarctica is colder than West Antarctica because of its higher elevation
