This is tricky. Probably climate B because I don't like brutally hot days or very dry summers.

Climate B suits my tastes better.

Based on the summers, this sounds like Dystopian Los Angeles (with warmer ocean temps) vs Utopian Houston

Climate B. I hate prolonged drought, sounds like hell.

Both too hot but Climate A sounds like hell on earth. At least Climate B has plenty of rainfall, lush forests, and as a bonus is not too far from water.

Climate A Winters:

1. No snow. Even frost is rare. Highs in the upper 50s, lows in the high 30s.
2. Winter is THE rainy season. Climate A gets only 20 inches of rain a year but 15 of those 20 inches falls during the winter.
3. Though the temps are mild on paper, the rain and the wind make it feel much colder than it really is.
4. When it's not raining, its windy. The dry spells are dominated by very warm, very dry winds that gust up to 80 miles per hour, bring temps to 70 or even 80 degrees, and bring the relative humidity to less than 10%. On occasion these winds will fan massive wildfires and blow the smoke all over the region. These winds can blow anytime from September to April.
5. The city is generally free from flooding and natural disasters, except for the foothill communities, where wildfire and landslide risk are high.

Climate B Winters:

1. Average temps are slightly warmer than those of Climate A; however, record lows are lower, and the region receives cold fronts that bring snow (although it typically doesn't snow more than twice a year, and it's never anything you have to shovel.)
2. Winters see ample rainfall, but only ten inches of rain vs. the 15 inches of rain in region A. Wildfire and landslides are unheard of anywhere.
3. Wind is negligible compared to Climate A.
4. Unlike climate A, where there are days with single-digit humidity, even sunny winter days in climate B are quite damp.
5. Although average temps are slightly warmer than those of climate A, this region sees more standard deviation in terms of temperature (i.e. it can get colder than climate A, hence the greater possibility of snow).

Climate B is the winner unless if spring/fall is unexpectedly awful.

At first I thought climate A was the winner, because I hate heat and humidity, but then I realized climate B has a decent winter to cool off. And without the wildfires and air quality issues of climate A.

Just a guess. Climate A reminds me of inland California, or maybe Australia, but the fact winter is from "September to April" means it's in the northern hemisphere. Maybe something like Willow Creek, CA or Redding, CA.

For climate B at first I thought somewhere like Tokyo (wealthy, advance flood control, hot humid summer, abundant rainfall, occasional snow), but the fact region B has no typhoons is a dealbreaker. Perhaps somewhere in South America, like Buenos Aires or Rosario?

No typhoons or hurricanes is a dealbreaker? As in you want typhoons?

So California in the summer is hell for you?
