Observed and simulated cloud change patterns are consistent with poleward retreat of mid-latitude storm tracks, expansion of subtropical dry zones, and increasing height of the highest cloud tops at all latitudes," the researchers wrote in the study.
If a pole-ward displacement of the mid-latitude storm tracks also occurs, this will shift mid-latitude precipitation pole-ward, impacting regional agriculture, economy and societY.
