It's horrific. A long winter followed by a Scottish summer. I'm guessing sunshine hours are low too?

I'm guessing its somewhere in Scandinavia? It looks similar to both Gothenburg and Trondheim.

Ö, för fan.

No, seriously, nice graph and everything, but it's still quite bad. That precipitation is just... I don't know. I'm really surprised at those rainfall figures and those summer temps.

March, April and November better than here, otherwise I don't see any improvement.

I'm still giving it a very weak C. Snowy at times, warm at times, and quite inoffensive. C--

edit: Wait a moment. October is not better than here, as we get half of the rainfall.

Wow. didn't expect that much precipitation in a swedish climate... Summers are very good, whereas winters are of course far too mild, although they're still better than in Malmö for example. If only Lapland had that precipitation^^ that would be an A+... I rate this climate C+ btw, although it definetely could be a B, if winters were like 2 or 3 degrees colder.

D for me. Quick to cool down and slow to warm up. A good many rain days too, I'll wager.

Well, first of the rainfall data only covers the much wetter 2000-2010 period. the 61-90 value was around 1000mm. second of, this is one of the rainiest low lying areas in sweden, bar some places in halland province. why its a good deal wetter than gothenburg is the considerably greater convective precipitation in summer, due to absence of sea-breeze. there may also be an effect of orographical heave due to being on the foot of the south swedish highlands (200-350m), but thats just my speculation.

as for summer temperatures being low, it can be explained by Gothenburg - UHI + 150m = around 2C.
