This climate is probably going to be an obvious choice for most of seasons lovers, heat haters, and cold lovers, and even warm weather fans who don't mind some damp and chill now and then; however, it will be a challenge for the heat lovers....

1) My fictional climate of Bakensteam which is extremely hot and dry half the year and extremely humid, steamy and rainy the other half of the year. Temperatures are like a hot day in Death Valley during the dry half and you feel like you're in an oven. During the humid and rainy half of the year, the temperatures cool slightly but the heat index make it feel like it's even hotter than in the dry half of the year. Dewpoints during the dry half of the year are in the 50s with temperatures in the 120 range during the day. During the wet half of the year, dewpoints are in the mid 80s with temperatures in the upper 90s creating heat indexes of 140 making it feel even hotter than the dry half of the year. The rain is a hot, steamy rain so it provides no relief from the heat. You feel like you are in a sauna with no relief even in shade. Thunderstorms and torrential downpours are common place and the water feels warmer than your bathtub.





2) This real-life climate (I'll call it Moderateville) with cool, gloomy, wet winters (mostly rain and lots of it (not heavy but a a lot of precip days with sunshine being rare and also usually from 1-5 light snow events each winter), and summers with warm days and cool nights, lots of sunshine and usually a few days of light rain each summer month (I've covered the location so let's see who can guess where it is). The winter temperatures are quite moderate but the damp, chilly cloudiness of winter can be annoying for heat/warm weather lovers. Let's see who can guess the location as well.

I kind of like Moderateville, winters could be colder and snowier, otherwise it's great. I know what it is, but I'm gonna give time for other people to guess.

Bakensteam is fictional, so of course, it's gonna be a bit quirky,as all my fictional climates are. Nonetheless, I bet that the some of the hardcore heat lovers/ cold haters will choose it.

If you are so sorry, then why make yet another stupid unrealistic climate thread? Really? This infestation of silly unrealistic climates is getting real old real fast.
