Solution

The local winds blow in certain places and these are warm and cold according to the area from which they blow, e.g. Foehn winds blow descending on the slopes of the Alps and make the temperature ideal for grapes due to its warm effect. In the same way, Chinook winds blowing, and coming down from the Rockies mountains in North America helps to increase the temperature and is beneficial to keep grasslands ice-free and warms the ranches, so good for animal rearing.
