We have the words "septentrional" and "meridional". "Boreal" and "austral" wouldn't be good fits as they relate to the north of the Northern Hemisphere and the southern parts of the Southern Hemisphere. Then again, "septentrional" and "meridional" can refer to the northern or southern part of any country or region respectively, irrespective of the hemisphere where they are located. Surely both words are dated and we would rather use "northern" and "southern".

Addendum: In BrE "meridional in temperament" relates to "Southern Europe" or Mediterranean, especially the South of France.
