Default Rate the climate - Saqqez, Iran

Iran seems to be a treasure trove for those who, like me, enjoy/appreciate wide temperature ranges. Saqqez, for example, rivals some Canadian and Russian locations for record lows (especially if those recent record lows are to be believed) and summer highs are pretty impressive for the altitude!

Rate away!

C-

Way too sunny and summer afternoons look unpleasant. Cool summer nights are nice and the winters okay. Precipitation on the low side though.

D+

Winter average temperatures aren't that cold. Summers are too hot and extremely dry.

Could be worse but it's a bit too extreme for me. Summers are too dry. C

Wow, an average summer maximum of 34C at that altitude and latitude? That's insane, but then again this is the Middle East.

I'll have to go a C, decent winters but summers are just too hot, although nights cool down nicely.

Wow, impressive climate. I'm especially impressed by these record lows if they are accurate.
Minus: the summer is bone dry, and I don't like the resulting high diurnal range. If the summer mean stayed the same, but with half the range, it would be much better. C.

The record lows seem on par with what a North American climate would be like with similar averages.

I'd rate this one a D, as I'm not fond of this kind of climate (too high highs in summer, cold winters and too much diurnal range).

It's interesting how the rainfall pattern is concentrated in spring. April showers indeed.

Although it must be hard from growing plants' point of view -- the growing season seems, like a short moist spring, sandwiched between a winter where it's too cold and a summer that's too hot and dry to grow.

D+/D. Would be a C, but the temperature swings suggest dry air, which really annoys me.

Iran is a bit like Turkey actually, much of the country's interior is a high plateau, with lots of high altitude cities that have very hot summers and cool/cold winters.

Isfahan at 1,590m or 5,217ft has an average high of 37C in July!
