Solution

  1. The air over the continental areas gets heated and cools faster than that over the oceans.
  2. The temperature in the continental areas changes faster as compared to the temperature over the water bodies.
  3. Due to this, the isotherm line deviates to a large extent while moving from the oceans to the land.

Hence, the isotherms run zigzag over the continental areas.
