Climate classification is Köppen Csa but I wouldn't call this Mediterranean by any stretch.

Mean temp in July and August is 74F / 23.3C

Mean temp in December and January is 31F / -0.5C

Rainfall in the warmer months is completely convectional.

I'll give this a B+. Summers never really get horribly hot and highs usually don't exceed 90F more than twice a year.

Too wet from November-January, the winters could be a bit cooler but they're alright, same thing with summers, decent enough that I won't die, but they could be at least 5 degrees cooler. Way too dark in winter also. The last thing I want to see is not even an hour of sunlight for an entire month, let alone TWO MONTHS! C

B-

Temperatures look much like NYC which I like. Would prefer a more evenly distributed precip pattern and more sunshine as well.

Too much snow for too many days. Still give it a B.

Winter sunlight is pointless with temperatures that low. No complaints there.

Love the winters; spring and fall are nice, too.

Temperatures are good year round.

But there is a dry season, so C+ it is.

Very strange climate.

2 months of total sunshine deprivation (4 of quasi total deprivation) would drive me insane, especially with those freezing temps, but it has proper summers (despite coolish nights) with a lot of sun, so that brings it up to a D.

B+. Nice, cool season. Lack of sunshine during the winter and too much precipation prevent it from getting a A.

Its not Csa but Csb by the way (well Dsb if you use the 0C threshold for winter, which I do); you need a month above 22C for a "-a" summer

I'm creating a fictional climate which is more extreme than this one but similar.
