November 57/40/0.50
December 53/32/0.10

Rainfall: 26.3 inches

Winters months are dry and very sunny, but summer is generally overcast and rainy. Spring and fall are transition seasons and see a mix of rainy days, cloudy days, and sunny/party cloudy days. Though the beginning and end of each transition season is usually sunny and dry (March and November). So I'd say from mid-November to mid-March you're almost guaranteed sunshine. Sunshine isn't unseen during the summer, but generally at a premium. So Phoenix-like sunshine during the winter and Seattle-like (with heavier rain) overcast/precipitation over the summer.

Looks quite similar to London but with the precip switched. I give it a C.

F. Way too much precipitation in the summer months, and winter highs are too high.

Yeah I wouldn't expect you to like it for the lack of winter. Though it'll be interesting to see if anyone would be willing to deal with rainy summers for the sunny winters.

C. The temps look similar to here, but with colder winters, and warmer summer nights. I like the summer rainfall totals, but the low sunshine is a bit of a problem. Winter is too dry, but the sunshine would be fine. It would be a better climate for me if it had a more even rainfall and sunshine distribution, like here. That could give it a B+

Actually not all that bad. I give it a 'C'.

I like how the winters have frosty mornings but then warm up to over 50 F and are bone dry and sunny.

The temps are comfortable, but the dry and somewhat mild winters would make me long for a snowier place. C+

C, temperatures are really nice but it would be better if the precipitation was reversed. I would rather have warm and sunny and cool and wet. It seems pretty gloomy the whole year. The only time it gets comfortable enough to be outside without a jacket it's raining anyways. Winters are not that cold so its nice and it shouldn't feel that bad with the sun but still not my ideal. Where is this by the way? It looks kind of like the Pacific Northwest with inverted precipitation.

It's a made up climate.

I think it would be a good place for those who need sunshine during the winter, though of course they'd have problems with the summers. But at least they'd be mild.
