Jumping on the bandwagon again.

Slightly modified and more detailed than what I've listed in the dream climate thread.

Average High/Average Low/Record High/Record Low

January: 30/17/58/-20
February: 29/15/57/-23
March: 35/22/62/-13
April: 42/29/70/0
May: 50/35/78/17
June: 60/43/84/26
July: 67/50/87/29
August: 66/49/87/32
September: 57/41/85/27
October: 50/33/77/8
November: 41/25/65/0
December: 34/19/58

Sunshine Hours: 1,300
Annual Rainfall: 100 inches
Annual Snowfall: 150 inches

Really ballparking the sunshine and precipitation. Generally a cool, cloudy, wet, foggy, windy, snowy climate. Technically humid continental, but with a strong maritime influence. The area is prone to battering wind, rain, snow, and ice storms. Weeks of uninterrupted cloudy and stormy weather are common. Most years winter doesn't truly end until late April or early May. While summers do get rainy, it is likely to be the sunniest, driest time of the year with highs in the 60s and 70s. Hottest temperature most years are around 75-80 while coldest is around -15. Basically a more extreme version of St. John's.

I like massive amounts of rain/snow, but winter is slightly too cool for my taste, summer is perfect! I give it a B.

I'm sure you would be very happy the one day that reaches 80 degrees.

Ditto. To have such a non-summer after such a cold winter is just wrong.

It looks a lot like St. John's, with somehow mild winter (for Canadian standard) and late spring. Winter here (Kitchener, ON) is colder, but I'd still much prefer it than this or St. John's climate. The extremely late spring, the cloudy sky, and the snow (150 inches...) would probably induce suicidal thoughts in me...

It's a colder and wetter Seattle. Given the temperatures, I would give it a much better grade if it weren't so cloudy and rainy. I'm sorry but I must give it an F for that.

B+, as the constant rain and cloudiness would be a little annoying. I love those temperatures and the snowfall rates, though.
