The Okanagan would fail spectacularly on my "Bad Day" acceptance criteria too.
Okanagan should have even more bad lows than Vancouver.
Probably nowhere in Canada can have less than 130 bad highs a year, even in an abnormally-warm year.
I think it's safe to say that everywhere in Canada will always have 100+ bad days a year, forever
or until we get an Earth cycle like back when there were dinosaurs.

I don't have a particular desire to stay in Canada,
and our range of climates don't help me reconsider staying.
It would just be easier if there were good climates for me, since I'm already Canadian.

Bunbury:

bad highs: 6
bad lows: 108

Perth:

bad highs: 7
bad lows: 73

Brisbane
:

bad highs: 1 (12.6C this June! )
bad lows: 12

Kalbarri: (about same latitude as Brisbane)

bad highs: 0
bad lows: 25

I think the differences between Kalbarri's lows and Brisbane's is due to heat-island effect.

Beaudesert: (near Brisbane)

bad highs: 0
bad lows: 88

Beaudesert seems to be worse than Bunbury for lows in winter, or at best the same.
Beaudesert has been much worse this particular winter than Bunbury, with several frosts and two lows below -3 C.
I wonder what makes its nights so cold.

But one thing that Beaudesert has that SW Oz doesn't have;
no more cold mornings by September... it's like the calendar "knows."
April too, however May seems to be fair game for crappy mornings.
I knew Brisbane would come out on top. But how does it change when you look at data for western suburbs such as Ipswich? I imagine there would be more bad nights but the same number of bad days.

Ipswich is probably milder than Beaudesert, even though Ipswich is further from the sea.
The diurnal ranges at Beaudesert really do make it sound like a desert.

I can look that up next when I get time.
