Belfast, Northern Ireland:



Susanville, California:



Which of these two climates do you view as warmer?

Calculate Susanville's annual mean temperature, and you may be surprised as to which is technically warmer... annual mean can be a misleading statistic!

Susanville by far. Their sun is far stronger and the summer temps are self-explanatory, despite the cold winters.

My definition of "warmer" is "higher average daytime high". If it's close enough, then it goes to whoever with the highest average daytime high in warmest month. So either way, it's Susanville.

But at the same time, if the average daytime highs are close enough, my definition of "colder" would be whoever with a lowest average daytime high in the coldest month, which would also be Susanville.

Neither climate is warm and the averages aren't that far apart, but Susanville likely comes across warmer because it does at least get warm during summer.

Belfast would be able to grow more species of plant, so is clearly warmer.

Susanville is both hotter and colder.
