Month High Low Precip Sun(hr) (averages)

Jan 59 50 8.8" 104
Feb 62 51 7.3" 120
Mar 67 54 7.3" 174
Apr 74 58 6.1" 230
May 81 63 4.2" 300
June 86 68 2.7" 341
July 90 71 1.0" 351
Aug 91 72 1.3" 331
Sept 86 69 4.1" 273
Oct 80 64 7.3" 221
Nov 70 60 8.7" 151
Dec 62 53 8.3" 100

This climate is simply perfection, a proper temperate climate. About 35-45 days with thunderstorms, which happen mostly in Spring and Autumn.
Too hot! yuch

Yes, this looks like another "ideal climate thread."

I do not see "rankings" in anyones' posts,
and they are not broken down into seasons either, but months.

Does anyone want to follow a pattern like mine from page 1?

91/72 F as the hottest average month?

There are countless climates in the SE USA that see a hotter month; this seems pretty tame imho.

Living in an oven full of moisture would be preferable to the SE USA!

In Leeds:

Winter: 8/10
Spring: 7/10
Summer: 4/10
Autumn: 8/10

The reason I rank summer the lowest because, over the past 5 or 6 years, summer has been the dullest, most uneventful season. I dread the countdown to summer in May.

I rank winter so high because when it's cold, it's usually sunny and frosty and looks stunning.

Same with Autumn, the colours are amazing and I love the cool mornings.

Spring is kind of depressing, especially March as nothing much happens weatherwise but cloud and drizzle.. April is really nice though and this year April was warmer than June I believe.

Winter: 1/10. Sometimes as "good" as 3/10 but rarely. A stinkeroo of a season.
Spring: This year 2/10, most years 4-6/10. A lot of clouds still, but the rain is warmer.
Summer: A really bad one, maybe as low as 7/10 but most of them are 9's.
Fall: Don't know what this one's going to be like but most of them are 6-8/10

Slightly revised from what I've posted in the past. The temperatures in my dream climate are a carbon copy of St. John's, NF. Only difference is that my climate would be much rainer, winters would be more prone to extreme cold, and it'd be quite windy.

Here's an overview:

Winters: Cold, cloudy, and snowy (though warm ups and rain would occur on occasion)
Spring: Delayed, cold to cool, cloudy, snowy, and rainy
Summer: Cool to mild, somewhat cloudy, and somewhat wet (but not nearly as wet as spring, fall, and winter)
Autumn: Cool to cold, cloudy, and wet. Wintry precipitation would fall as early as October.

January 30/15
February 30/15
March 34/21
April 41/28
May 50/35
June 60/43
July 68/50
August 68/52
September 61/46
October 51/38
November 43/31
December 34/22

Record High: 87
Record Low: -23

Fantastic climate. I could definitely live in such a place, as long as it isn't too sunny.
