Why does air temperature decreases closer to the river in Manaus? Keeping in mind that Manaus CBD is located next to the river.?

large bodies of water tend to retain their heat or cold. The river, in this case, is retaining some cold from the winter. Plus it probably is cooler at the source of the river, and that keeps it cooler as the cooler water flows downstream. Plus evaporation cools it.
