Köppen climate classification

ClimateKöppenKöppen-Geiger climate classification system
Under the Köppen climate classification, Cfa and Cwa climates are either described as humid subtropical climates or mild temperate climates.

United States

AmericanU.S.USA
While many subtropical climates tend to be located at or near coastal locations, in some cases they extend inland, most notably in China and the United States, where they exhibit more pronounced seasonal variations and sharper contrasts between summer and winter, as part of a gradient between the more tropical climates of the southern coasts of these countries and the more continental climates of China and the United States’ northern and central regions (localities around the Ohio and Yangtze rivers exhibiting continental influence from the north, compared to climates around the Gulf of Mexico and the South China Sea, which exhibit tropical influence due to their southern coastal positions).
To the east of the 100th meridian, the climate ranges from humid continental in the north to humid subtropical in the south.
