Beijing is vaguely similar for temps, less extreme though. Think your warm-shifted transitions better resemble E Asian than N Am climates. Obviously the snow + humid summers+ heat wave tendency will be harder to find together, many snowy places are more moderated by oceanic influence from heat waves, and those records of course are impossible irl.

The temperature sounds a lot like certain deserts in Central Asia (Taklamakan, Kyzylkum, Ryn, Gobi, etc.) but even more extreme. It may not exist today, but it's quite possible that temperate regions of Pangaea had climates like that or even harsher.

Correct. I'll be sure to add all that to my personal notes, but I sadly can't edit my OP. Thanks for pointing that out!

EDIT: I also just realized I made a few typos, both at the beginning of the A group and end of the F group. I wish I could fix those fully, but again, I guess I'll just have to settle with doing so in my personal notes and releasing them later.

Although I just looked it up and realized something even I didn't expect; although, it does have a cooler average temp (so less potential evaporation) and is drier than most of the British Isles. Also, for some reason, it seems to have more grass than trees when I looked in the street view and satellite view of nearby rural areas, which also surprised me.

I guess I'm Cda/Cga borderline?

Don't trust the wikibox for SLC, those averages are technically correct, but that weather doesn't happen here anymore. There was an abrupt shift in the climate around late 2013. A normal July or August mean is around 82F.

Sun Belt-lover L.A.M.'s climate classification system (redone)

I've redone this system. This was a rushed, underdone and all-around terrible system IMO, and several of you seem to agree.

The new system is better and more advanced but mostly just an improvement on this one. I'd like to see whether you prefer it over this!
