  • Landforms
    • Plains: Plains are broad, nearly level stretches of land that have no great changes in elevation. Plains are usually well populated because the soil and terrain are good for farming, and roads and railways are easily built between rural towns and cities.

  • Climate
    • The Midwest is fairly cold and dry during the winter.  The further north you go in the Midwest, the colder it gets.  More snow can also be found in areas near the Great Lakes. 
    • It is very warm and humid in summer in the Midwest. More rain falls during the summer because of the thunderstorms caused by hot and humid afternoons. The northern part of the region still averages out to be mostly sunny with less humidity.  The nights are cool up north and mild down south.
