  1. The prevailing westerly winds usually bring oceanic air in the form of tropospheric winds, clouds and stratospheric jet stream onto the western continental coasts at the middle latitudes. The reason has to do with the direction of the Earth's rotation. The air that comes in from the ocean is typically cooler in summer and warmer in winter, than air that has spent a lot of time over the central continent and eastern seaboard. Thus the western regions of continents at middle latitudes then to have milder climates
