Anyways, being a weather enthusiast and calling 0 C "bitterly cold" is stupid. That's something I would expect a random moron to say. And to only be 4 C colder than London yet London is mild and NYC is "bitterly cold" makes no sense. So 4-5 C is the only difference between bitterly cold and mild?
But it is rarely overcast. It is normal to see the sun the vast majority of days. It'll be higher of course if we record sun like they do in the US.

Well I hate anything below 6c and will wear gloves if it is that cold during the day. Some of our extrenely cold winters of 5-8 years ago had average highs of 4-6c, and I would describe those as bitterly cold. London doesn't have mild winters, it has cool winters. Sydney has mild winters.

These winter months are cold or bitterly cold.

Because it's warmer, drier and not as windy. Even Southampton (where went to uni for 4 years), is noticeably windy and rainy compared to London.

Why even ask the question if you don't want me to answer? You just want to start another argument.

What I find stupid is people like Cambium complaining 24/7 at temperatures in the high 20s C in early September and saying it's bad for his latitude when it just isn't. He acts like Connecticut is the Persian Gulf

Portsmouth is warmer, has less rain days, and is considerably sunnier.

Mainly because you just talk ****. If nobody on this forum knew London's climate, you'd have us all believe it's some warm, sunny paradise.

Yeah, because posting the stats from the Met Office is claiming that it's a warm and sunny paradise. You always go on like it's the worst climate on earth.

London gets far more warm/hot days that Portsmouth does.

Well they have self-seeded on parts of the south coast. It's only a matter of time before the same happens in London, when more have been planted.

Yes. This and this over and over again. He thinks CT is more oppressive than FL because of soil type.

It's not that bad at all, but you're the one that exaggerates it. I'm not talking about the figures ffs. I'm talking about how YOU talk about London's climate. I'm not the only person that notices this.

Oh, so conveniently ignoring the facs about Portsmouth, in favour of your embarrassing obsession with London.

Nice.

To be fair I'd choose London over Portsmouth as well for the higher chance of proper warmth/heat. Give me Portsmouth's sunshine hours with our averages and I'd be a lot more happy.
