I thought of that, but its weather averages seemed warmer than your numbers. But I couldn't find a good site for the averages. All I could find was stuff like 'Summers are about 80 and humid" and no good numbers. Can I see where found the numbers?

I couldn't find one site which provided both temperatures and precipitation, so I got it from two different sites.

Temperature: Weather and Climate: Pitcairn, Pitcairn Islands, average monthly Rainfall, Sunshine, Temperature (celsius)

Precipitation: Weatherbase: Historical Weather for Adamstown, Pitcairn Islands

Nope. I didn't know it either. I'm suprised Russia had a city that warm. I just knew where it couldn't be and narrowed down the possibilties. The Pitcairn Islands stumped me. I got a geography lesson of the South Pacific, Australia and a few other places around the world. I had no clue and found Easter Island at random and saw it looked close. Didn't expect Easter Island would match.

Sochi is going to host the Winter Olympics in 2014. That city looks like it might be able to support a few kinds of palm trees. I assume the Olympics would be up in the Mountains, like Vancouvers'.

No clue how hard this one will turn out...


Jan 9.7/3.1 C (49/38 F) 112 mm (4.4 in)
Feb 9.8/2.7 C (50/37 F) 102 mm (4.0 in)
Mar 10.2/2.8 C (50/37 F) 99 mm (3.9 in)
Apr 13.2/4.4 C (56/40 F) 45 mm (1.8 in)
May 17.4/8.2 C (63/47 F) 24 mm (1.0 in)
Jun 22.2/12.9 C (72/55 F) 6 mm (0.2 in)
Jul 25.7/17.3 C (78/63 F) 1 mm (0.1 in)
Aug 25.5/17.1 C (78/63 F) 2 mm (0.1 in)
Sep 23.2/14.6 C (74/59 F) 11 mm (0.4 in)
Oct 18.5/10.4 C (65/51 F) 38 mm (1.5 in)
Nov 12.2/5.0 C (54/41 F) 82 mm (3.2 in)
Dec 9.9/2.9 C (50/37 F) 79 mm (3.1 in)

Precipitation is rain + snow equivalent (not that this location would have very much snow, judging from the averages)

Apparently Vancouver 2010 was the warmest Winter Olympics ever, but the next one will take the cake.

They're planning events in the Caucasus mountains nearby. Sochi's at the same latitude at Toronto too (43 N), but I gotta love their city's flag.
