Northport has a unique climate. Although it's subarctic, it tends to be moist and gloomy for it's type, with 221.2 precipitation days and only 1,193.4 hours of sunshine. Depsite the low sunshine hours, the gloom is mostly in winter, when precipitation is at it's maximum, which, when coupled with fog, adds up to a sunshine figure of only 10.6 hours in the gloomiest month. Summer, by contrast, is much sunnier, with July topping out at 228.1 hours.

Another quirky feature of this climate is the fact that snow is wet due to it's marine nature, kind of like the Newfoundland and Labrador climates in the real world. But this is balanced off by the frigid winters due to it's far northern location, creating a Snow:water ratio of 10:1 in the coldest month.

Basically it's a combination of the gloom in Cfc climates and the cold in Dfc climates. What do you think? I rate it a B. Winters may be cold, but other factors are great.
