Idaho has a varying climate. Though landlocked, the maritime influence is still felt in Idaho. This influence affects the winter months moderately, as winters are not as harsh as they could be with the high altitude. The climate in Idaho can be hot, with low relative humidity and cooler evenings, since the highest diurnal difference in temperature is often in the summer. Winters are cold, however, rarely reach below zero.
