The common features that are shared by all humid microthermal climates.

Explanation

The westerlies and storms of the polar front are shared by the humid microthermal climate with the marine west coast climates. However, the position of the westerlies and storms of the polar front in high latitudes and in continental interiors resists the microthermal regions from the moderating effects of the oceans. This type of climate does not prevail in the Southern Hemisphere due to the absence of large landmasses in the appropriate latitudes.

Many common characteristics are shared by microthermal climates. All humid climates except subarctic experience a surplus of precipitation over potential evapotranspiration, and they receive year-round precipitation, whereas the subarctic climate experiences bitter cold and winter droughts caused by dry air...
