Different weather makes people feel different; it influences(影响)health, intelligence and feelings.
In August, it is very hot and wet in the south of the US. People there have heart trouble and other health problems during this month. In the Northeast and Middle West, it is very hot at some times and very cold at other times. People in these states have more heart trouble after the weather changes in February or March.
The weather can also influence intelligence. For example, in a 1983 report by scientists, IQs of a group of students were very high when a very strong wind came, but after the strong wind, their IQ was 10% below. The wind can help people have more intelligence. Very hot weather can make it lower. Students in many schools of the US often get worse in exams in the hot months of the year.
Weather also has a strong influence on people's feelings. Winter may be a bad time for thin people. They usually feel cold during these months. They might feel unhappy during cold weather. And___________________________________________________.
