the climate is warm and humid.
Rio de Janeiro is at 22 latitude, so most of the time it receives direct rays year

Elevation is not an issue for Rio de Janeiro because it is only 10 feet above sea
level.
It is surrounded by forest. These forest make it a tropical climate.
On the Western side of the city is a mountain, which helps keep moisture over
the city.
The winds cause some areas, especially the ones located near the ocean to be
cooler. However the southeasterly trade winds bring in warm water that cause
the warming of the city.
