For those who didn't think Srinagar was cold enough... rate Leh, India. I give it a big fat "F" for those awful winters

C+

Comfortable year-round, but too dry and presumably sunny.

C. Very little precipitation in the winter months, and even though I like the cold, this is a bit too much, though I still prefer this to a tropical climate, that's for sure. Nice summer temperatures and precipitation.

I guess I have a biased experience of Leh because when I was there in August it was very enjoyable, around 30°C in the day, 15°C at night, and abundantly sunny.
But by looking at the chart, I'd say D for very cold winters and very limited warmth from mid-June to mid-Sep. Another problem is that due to its high altitude and drought, vegetation is very lacklustre.
However a good point is that it seems like a sunny climate overall.

Same here.

At those temperatures, whether it's sunny or not must make a difference in comfort, if you prefer the warm side of things.

I noticed the diurnal range from the stats isn't really that high, even though it's so dry and at a high altitude.

I wonder why the range is not especially big, even compared to some of the mountain climates of California and the American southwest (examples from previous rate the climate threads are Taos, New Mexico and Bodie, California with quite a huge diurnal range) that actually get more precipitation?
