The humid subtropical climate (Cfa) has hot muggy summers and frequent thunderstorms. Winters are mild and precipitation during this season comes from mid-latitude cyclones.

High humidity occurs in summer months. Summer climate is much like humid tropics. Frost can occasionally occur with the presence of Continental Polar air masses in winter.  Precipitation varies from 650 to 2500 mm (26 and 98 in.).

CFb: These climates have mild winters and cool summers with low annual temperature range. Frontal activity produces heavy cloud cover and high humidity during fall, winter, and spring. Long periods of rain and drizzle from frequent occurrence of mid-latitude cyclones. Frost can sometimes occur during the winter season.
