• Plateau climate zone: Qinghai-Tibet Plateau A plateau climate zone is only found in North America and Eurasia. Typically plateau climate zones are dry with warm to hot summers and cold winters. Oceanic air masses are blocked by mountains allowing polar air masses to dominate in the winter and local continental air masses to dominate the summers which are dry. The plateau climate zones are located in western North America (Great Basin, Columbia Plateau, Great Plains), and the Eurasian interior where the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is found.
