In the series "Me vs the World" I take on a number of actual city's climates with one of my fictional ones which is similar.

This time, I compare the US city of Seattle with East West Bayton.

The main differences:

East West Bayton has colder winters.
East West Bayton has a bit more sun (despite what wikipedia says, actual values for Seattle are 1800-1900 hours a year)
East West Bayton has slightly milder summers.
East West Bayton is a lot drier.

Bayton, no doubt. Better summer temps, no dry season and good sunshine. Could live in such a climate despite lacking real winters.

The point is to select which climate data is better, regardless of whether it's real or not, so which "beats" which depends on what the statistics are obviously. If you don't like fictional climates (although this is based on scientific analysis), don't bother reply in the thread then.
