Forgot to add the pole.

Anyway, I would rate this about a B-. I much prefer the drier climate of Wenatchee over this, but both are good. (Definitely both better than Seattle with all four seasons and low humidity).

B

The sharp temperature drop in October and November is interesting.

C-. Too dry during the summer. Late fall winter sunshine is atrocious. Also winter temperatures are colder than I'd prefer. Summers look very nice though. A decent 4 season climate.

C. Dryness a plus, very cold winters a minus, high summer sunshine is good.

B. I like it. Only drawbacks are the arid summers and the records a little more extreme than I'd like, though presumably it doesn't get near them very often.

Spokane's climate is a favorite of mine, that rare Dsb climate. Not much for me to complain about other than the occasional hot but dry day. A

D. Horrible sunshine hours in winter, and winters too cold. Summer okay for daytime temps and sun but cools down too much at night.

Average temps are nice, but summers could be a killer. I'd like it somewhat more wet and less sunny, but I'll still give it a B+.

I love Spokane's climate. More wind and colder winter temps would be an improvement, but it's still great as is.
