Who else misses these? Please make more.
I tried to combine southern China summers with South Asian overnight lows and North American West Coast ski town winters. Tried to make this as realistic as possible.

I give it an F, disgusting. Too dull in winter and too hot in summer.

I was kind and give it a D- - I can accept April-October though most of these months aren't that close to ideal. November - March is trash.

Those aren't Southern Chinese summers. Maybe Guangzhou 200 years into the future.

And those winters are painfully cold and annoyingly snowy.

Can't decide between D- and F, so E.

Awful. I don't tend to like very seasonal climates as they usually have a good and a bad season, but this manages to have two bad seasons as winter is too cold and summer is too hot.

The rainfall, snowfall, sunlight hours are great and the climate is delightful from October through March. Winter looks great with lots of cold and snow. ::

Holy hell though, that summer is atrociously hot and loooong!

It's a C; could be an A without the horrid summers and with cooler shoulder seasons.

Grade: 72.3% / C-

Winter mean / Summer mean / Seasonal range / Precip / Seasonal lag / Snowfall / Record range*

80 / 57 / 76 / 77 / 99 / 43 / 92

This is what happens when you take everything I like in a climate and go too far. Winters are too snowy, but aren't too bad on temperatures; nevertheless, the record highs are too cold, and the record lows could stand to be a little chillier. Summers are too hot; with temperature and precipitation figures like that, dew points would probably usually be in the 80-83 F / 27-28 C range. A typical summer day (95.5 F / 35.3 C high, 82 F / 28 C dew point) would have a heat index of 119 F / 48 C! Sun hours are also a little low.

Yeah, that climate seems to take the Midwest's occasional summertime humidity issue with "corn sweat" (technically called evapotranspiration) to another level.


Those summers would be way too much given how cold the winters are. Not even places in Northern China (such as Tianjin) or the U.S. Midwest are like that in terms of summertime averages, though they would probably represent the closest climates to this that I can think of (cold winters with high summer humidity, albeit Northern China gets less winter precipitation, to my understanding, than the Midwest due to the Siberian High).
