If the houses there are made out of bricks and concrete, then the climate gets a B. If not, then a C-.

Halton is located in a developed Country so houses are made of bricks and concrete will air conditioning built in.

Ideal temp wise and close to perfection overall except for 2 aspects:

-There is no dry season.
-Summer record lows are a shame for a tropical climate (how would you even explain that they are just a couple degrees higher than winter record lows?)

A.

Make it bone dry around Dec/Jan and that's an A+.

Well the record lows are so low due to the neighbouring Mountains that surround the city (mainly to its west) during the night when winds from the ocean is calm, a offshore wind blows from the Mountains bringing moist but chilly air down towards to the coast which can lead to chilly temperatures year round.

Its just a downhill wind or as Wikipedia puts it a ''Katabatic wind'' - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katabatic_wind

The foehn wind is what causes higher than normal temperatures in the city - winds typically occur during the day and when the easterlies (onshore winds) are weak.
