Marine West Coast

By Chris

Climate location

Its located poleward of the Mediterranean climate region on the western sides of the continents, between 35° and 60° N and S latitude. In the Köppen-Geiger-Pohl system, the marine west coast climate is divided into the Cfb and Cfc subtypes.

yearly precipition 20-98in of rain

Season and temp. 50-59F


marine west coast climates are located near the farthest poleward extent of the subtropical anticyclone, and they experience the mid-latitude westerlies and traveling frontal cyclones all year. Precipitation totals vary somewhat throughout the year in response to the changing location and intensity of these storm systems Not only is precipitation plentiful but it is also reliable and frequent. Many areas have rainfall more than 150 days per year, although the precipitation is often of low intensity. Fog is common in autumn and winter, but thunderstorms are infrequent. Strong gales with high winds may be encountered in winter.
