That's interesting, but it is not very illuminating IMO, because it neglects the effects of the jet stream, of elevation, and of the tempering influence of the Mediterranean. There are differences between Italy, for instance, and the states of Colorado and Wyoming that go far beyond and are far more significant than the influence of latitude.
