So here are 3 'realistic' fictional climates I made based on a fictional island. Which one do you like best?

No poll, post your preference by reply.

Northford
Located on the extreme northern coast, with temperatures like Southern Alaska and moderate precipitation with a monsoonal pattern, though it's by no means dry in winter.

Kohoo
In Central-West Frozenland by the mountains. Mountains uplift Atlantic moisture causing huge amounts of precipitation and copious snowfall.

Beachopolis
A maritime climate on the south coast. It is affected by the Gulf Stream much more than the other two cities, causing a warmer climate. It is also not as variable, with winter lows subfreezing in only 2 months and summers are only as warm as Northford.

Ironically, Beachopolis is not even remotely suited to going to the beach. Cold wintry subarctic dross.

All of them are crappity crap, hesitantly going to choose Kahoo for the summer. Actually on second thought no... 10 meters of snow and 2,300mm of rain **** that

So which one would you choose? Beachopolis is named because of it's consistent record highs with beach weather recorded year-round, not year-round hot averages.

I find it very hard to choose between Kohoo and Northford. Actually, both are quite good climates. Kohoo is a little bit colder during mid-winter while Northford is a little bit colder during fall and spring, which I'd actually prefer over Kohoo's falls and springs... On the other hand, Kohoo receives amazing amounts of snow even in spring and fallb, but also Northford is far from being dry during winter.... there's also pretty much snowfall in Northford.... July in Kohoo is too warm, while June in Northford is too cool. so, the decision is really hard, but i think I'll go with Kohoo, because Northford is indeed colder in spring and fall, but it's not cold enough during mid-winter to win against Kohoo's amazing amount of snowfall.

All of these are pretty terrible, but I have to choose Beachopolis because it is the "warmest" year round and it has more reasonable snowfall amounts.

Beachopolis, I guess. Way too wet, too cold in the winter, and too much snow but it's better than those other two.
