So although it is marginal and not all that dry during the summer, it is Dsc .

Oh, okay then. For some reason I thought the driest month had to be 1/10 of the wettest. I thought I read that somewhere, I either mixed up the numbers or there are different definitions floating around. Looks like my dream climate is almost Dsb anyway!

The 1/10 standard is actually the Koeppen standard for a winter dry season, so a mix-up it is .

F+. Summers aren't totally abyssmal (I'm assuming they're dry and sunny with very long daylight hours due to the high lattitude?). Sunshine is very high considering.

I change my rating to an A-, I'd rather there be zero chance of above freezing temperatures in the winter

Hahaha.


F+ from me, due to decently mild summer days and quite good yearly sunshine, though I suspect a very uneven distribution.

PM, I thought you hated sunshine
