Didn't even have to read anything here to know Yreka would be my answer. The second I saw the thread title I knew. Much better the Eureka for sure!

Eureka is near climatic hell for me too. A perpetual spring/fall. And lots of rainfall. Ick!

Re the diurnal range diurnal range vs the seasonal range. I was meaning that very few places have a bigger day/night range (outside of the tropics/warm subtropics) than seasonal range. Eureka and here ( Motueka specifically) have that in common, although here has an even bigger difference than Eureka.

Eureka still has a smaller seasonal range than the Azores though, which is interesting. The Azores has a very small night/day range, partly due to lower sunshine hours and warmer sea probably.

Yreka is pronounced Y-rayka while Eureka is pronounced U-reka. So if you're a local you can tell them apart.

Eureka for the rain and the lack of hot summers.

The mild winters of Eureka and lack of frequent frosts make it a tough decision. I suppose I'll go with Yreka.

Yreka.

Eureka's "summer" would make me accept Yreka's freezing winter in a heartbeat.

Am I seeing this correctly? Eureka's July record high is only 76F?

I choose Yreka.
