Here's a elevation-influenced climate with pleasant temperatures and a North Indian monsoon pattern. I give it a solid A. It's certainly the best Indian climate I have found.

Note that even though the source is not the most reliable and there are contradicting sources, I did a linear interpolation based on elevation and average temperatures with Shimla and Chandigarh and found the temperatures to be accurate. For the purposes of this thread, just use the climate box on Wikipedia.

Humidity seems very reasonable considering the temperatures in the humid season. In a way, I kind of like the idea of separate dry and humid heat seasons as it provides more seasonality.

As usual, please rate fairly. Human-caused air pollution and other non-climatic factors should not be considered.

Solid C. Not bad but wet season is too wet.

Straight C grade. Not enough heat, wet season is over the top, winters a bit on the cool side.

C-. Too warm especially in May/June and the rainfall pattern is too pronounced. Probably too sunny (I am guessing 2500-3000 hrs).

What are the sun hours? I’d imagine quite low in the wet season?

B-, 9 months are fairly comfortable.

This is an interesting one! I like the temperature variation, and the fact that winters aren't too dry. Summer is too wet for me though. I'd give it a B-.

Shimla, a hill town in the same area a couple thousand feet higher, looks great, albeit a bit too cool in July/August.

Yeah, similar climate. I like Solan better because Shimla is too cold year-round with weak summers.

Despite all the rain, Shimla has lots of sunshine year-round so I'd give it an A.

Based on Shimla's sunshine hours, I award Solan a D.
