Midlatitude and high-latitude climates  as a group:  o occupy the midlatitude zone, part of the subtropical zone and extend poleward into the subarctic latitude  zone.  o are located mainly in the northern hemisphere.  o are affected by the poleward portion of the subtropical high-pressure cells, the westerly wind belt and the  conflict between warm and cold air masses that occurs along the polar front zone.  The  dry subtropical climate is a poleward extension of the dry tropical climate, but shows a greater annual temperature  range due to its higher latitude.  experiences a cool or cold season influenced by invasions of air from higher latitudes.  receives occasional precipitation from midlatitude cyclones.  is divided into arid and semi-arid subtypes.
