Question about English (US)

Yesterday I saw a sentence, which confused me: the closer south you are, the hotter you'll feel.
Is it the short form of "The closer (to the south) you are, the hotter you'll feel"? Cause this one's original sentence would be "I'm close to the south.", but the first sentence would be "I'm close south". I think it is not grammatically correct.
