How does the Earth’s wobbling axis affect the weather?

    The weather is not immediately, directly affected by the precession of the Earth’s rotational axis, because the movement happens over thousands of years.

    What change one would see is that the equator would move up on one side of the Earth, and down on the other. (Imagine shifting a ring slightly over a spinning marble.)

    But note that the Earth’s daily spin around its own axis, and its yearly spin around the sun are responsible for practically all weather.

    So there are three different things going on: one daily, one yearly, and one, the wobbling of the axis, over thousands of years.
