Thunderstorms are common from October to May, with an average of 9 occurring in each of those months.

I'll give it a B- as it isn't that seasonal, averages wise, but the extreme temperatures aren't too shabby relative to the averages.

This one gets an F from me. Perpetual warm and heat, very hot record highs, and no cold or snow to speak of at any point.

Solid A. Consistently warm but never crossing over into uncomfortably hot (highest low 17 C, highest high 28 C). Good sunshine, good rainfall distribution with a brief dry season (that isn't completely dry).

But why does the temp min occur in May?

D. At least it cools down somewhat at night.

C record highs are ridiculous high. I have to ask the same as the others, how did you arrive at the temperature distribution?

B

What I like:

- Enjoyable monthly average maximums in every month, except for May
- The record highs would keep this climate interesting... 112 F in January might be too hot, but that's okay; so short lived.
- Pleasant sunshine hours

What I don't like:

- Inconsistent warmth
- Two-to-four months of cool average lows; the remainder cold average lows
- Record lows are too cold April-October
- Record lows from November-March are too chilly for summer imho
- Too many rainy days, unless this rain is usually short in duration; under 30 minutes a day would be nice.

This climate is oddly continental in terms of monthly record lows and highs,
given that there not a lot of variation between summer and winter average temperatures. I can't say I dislike that feature though.
Sometimes Australian weather is boring because they lack "severely-sharp cold-front-induced storms" like eastern North America.

From what I've seen,
A thunderstorm in Australia hardly ever lasts a half-hour,
where in Toronto 1a -4 hours long thunderstorms is normal.

C, it's a nice climate.

It's cooler than I'd like, the diurnal range is larger than I'd like, and the temperatures are a little too uniform for me. However I'd choose to live here over most climates.

This climate has Gosford's summers and Eugene's summers with May being the coldest month, incidentally. The record lows in Eugene are pretty close.

Sunshine hours are guesstimated for both locations. Record highs are realistic as well.
