The threshold for Koeppen Dsc is 30 millimeters, which is met in two months, with the driest summer month having 29 mm. Furthermore it meets the criterion of the wettest winter month having more than 3 times as much precip as the driest summer month. 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
