Why mornings are cold?

I have noticed.....even during hot summer, at early mornings temperature is slightly less. Why so? One may answer, it's due to the absence of sun in the early mornings. But how? Sun rises very soon in the early morning. Obviously sun is very near and earth should be hot. If distance between sun and earth is the only criteria, earth should be more cold at midnights. But it's not the truth. We feel chilled during early morning. What's its explanation?

N.B: I am not neglecting the fact that due to rotation, one side of earth always faces sun and when it's day in Asia, it's night at US.

The reasons for morning coolness depends on one or all the following
Depending on Longitude and Latitude of a place the intensity of heat on that particular place varies.
The angle at which the sun's rays reach Earth is directly related to the intensity of sunlight at the surface.
You know Sun is highest at noon. And this highest point is known as ‘Zenith.’ And this zenith varies from place to place depending on latitude and longitude.
Now if you want to know the reasons why Kovalam is cooler than Kottayam or Kozhikode, you have to attribute the reason for their variation of Latitude and longitude.

Sandhya Rani Kovalam? My native place (My hubby's). Actually when we reach Trivandrum from Thrissur, we feel like we reached 'Antartica'...haha..Vast difference! His home is just 1km away from seashore. If we sit in the work area, we could feel the cool breeze even at day time. So I assumed that it's reason why Trivandrum has less temperature comparing Kochi and Thrissur. ...(near to sea). But you are giving some another reason....." variation of Latitude and longitude"??? - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago
Sandhya Rani But how can we relate the terms of Latitude and longitude to morning chillness? - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago
rambabu Kovalam is known for its world class Beaches.
From the zenith of the sun at noon which again varies from place to place you can relate to morning chillness.

I think During daytime Sun is over ourself but after evening to till morning climate remain cool as compared to day time. This make morning a little bit cooler as compare to daytime.

The temperatures would drop at night and the temperature would rise only when the sun is out in the morning.
