I am not as sure of my dream climate as most of you, and I realized not long ago I'd like a few 30C-33C days. I tried this concept out with the borderline subarctic climate of New Shangri-La, but now I looked back at it and thought that a year-round wet climate is better. The Dfb climate of Calebgrad, fairly similar to parts of Southeastern Canada (Owen Sound, Ontario, Halifax, Nova Soctia etc) is the incarnation of this concept.

I would rate this an A. Winters that aren't bitterly cold but plenty snowy that suit my liking and summers that can get the odd hot day but are mostly comfortable define this climate. But I am not sure about the day-to-day changes that happen in a summer like that. Maybe there are too much hot days and it's too stable but I don't know really.

Well, this is a vast improvement to your previous dream climates! Spring and early summer could be a little bit warmer, and it's far too rainy, but otherwise temps are not far from ideal. Autumn is perfect. The snowfall scares me, and I wouldn't like snow at all in May and October.

I'll give it a B+!

92% / A-. Summer averages would need to be less than 5 C / 9 F warmer to get a near perfect score. 28 C / 82 F in July would be perfect.

Surprised that you gave it a B+. Your dream climate is Cfa and mine is Dfb.

I give this one a B-. The winter temperatures are too warm but still decent with the exception of December (40F? blah!), but the heavy snowfall offsets that somewhat. Summer highs are decent but the nighttime temperatures are too warm in July and August. Record highs are too warm throughout the year, with the exception of summer record lows, which are about right.

C, Winters aren't really bad but still too cold and snowy. Summers aren't hot enough. Precipitation is all right but barely.

It has its flaws, might've been a bit generous. But still, I won't downgrade it from a B. As I said, spring way too cool, but otherwise pretty good.
