If the earth were like the Mercury(there were no atmosphere but remain the 23.5 degrees axial tilt), could it be possible that not only?

the latitudes will effect the climate and temperature, but also the longitude will effect the climate and temperature too

    If Earth were tidal locked to the sun, so that one side is always daylight and the other side always night, longitude would have a great effect on temperature. But it the planet is rotating, then longitude has no effect.

    there is no climate without air.

    temperatures will be determined by radiation input and output and conduction from other nearby materials, which includes thermal energy stored in the interior.

    Heat from the molten core will also be a factor.
