so, this is a new, strange and unrealistic Dfa climate I created lately. How would you rate it?
I'd give it a D+... Winters are pretty good, though way too short and too warm, but summers are way too long and too hot... Precipitation is good year-round.... Especially the combination of high rainfall/snowfall and very little precipitation days would be very interesting... Sunshine is way too high, too...

Very interesting... The temperatures are very good, but it's too sunny, and that brings the grade down to C, otherwise it would've been an A.

Inspired by Subtropique? This looks similar just a little colder, with alot more snow and precip...

Anyway I would have a D. Way too hot, sunny, rainy. Not a good climate but way better than most subtropical climates.

D, winters are far too cold and snowy, and it is too wet all year. Give July and August more normal temps, get rid of 90% of the rain and it would be an A-.

Temperatures are similar to my Subtropique, but this climate is much wetter, but paradoxically also much sunnier. D + for the interesting factor.

I give this one a B. It's too sunny and too wet (how often does that combination happen?) but other than that it's pretty good. The winters are too cold and snowy for my liking but since they're so short and it's nice and warm the rest of the year it really doesn't bother me much.

If you cut precipitation in half and brought the sunshine down to the 2000 - 2500 hour range it would be a solid A climate for me.

Probably the only type of continental climate I could truly enjoy due to abundant sunshine, brief yet snowy winters and warmish temps for the rest of the year (along with, I presume, heavy downpours).

Hard to rate but I could go probably push to B- thanks to sunshine (this is extremely unusual from me to give such a high grade to a climate with freezing winters)

You and I have extremely similar tastes in climate in many regards (especially in what we consider ideal), but this is exactly where we strikingly differ - you hate cold above all but I don't, I hate coolish gloom (which this climate precisely avoids)

C+ - too wet year round. Way better than a regular tropical climate as it doesn't have that stupid neversnow.
