I've read a lot of the Rate the climate threads, and I wanted to strat my own.
This city has a cool temperate climate with dry, windy summers and rainy (and snowy) winters.

San Carlos de Bariloche - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Very sunny and dry in the summer and very rainy and cloudy in the winter.

I give it a A-. If it wasn't for the wind, it would be a solid A. Not that I don't like the wind, but in Bariloche (as in Patagonia in general) it's a bit too much. (I've been there).

In the summer, despite the fact that average highs are in the low 70s, the temp can reach 86 (30 C), but as the humidity is low, it's still pleasant weather. And you know you can always sleep comfortably well considering the cool average lows for summer.

Winter is nice with rain, snow and wind, and also some sunny days, though fewer than in summer. The temps are cold but not harsh.

What do you think?

This climate is an almost identical southern hemisphere equivalent to my home city of Vancouver even down to the precip pattern. I give it a D (the same as my own city) because of the cold winters and relatively high snowfall.

A- for me. Winters are a little milder than ideal, but since snow seems to be a guarantee and the summers are perfect for me, I doubt I would complain about that.

I don't like this. It's like a colder version of my own climate (which is pretty poor already). Look how cold the summer lows are! I give it a 'D' for the lack of extreme heat or cold and I'm sure I'd enjoy the winter snowfall.

This site is in Spanish, but I think anyone with a little knowledge of meteorology will surely understand the data. Just click on the "INSOLACIÓN" tab. It's 2637 hours annually.

Thanks - then I make it a B-. A bit warmer and it would be up to B+.

C-. the summer isn't warm enough to make up for the winter, also too dry in summer. I like the sunshine total though, very nice. Minimum temperatures in winter aren't as cold as I would have thought. The local alpine lake here (600 m and at the same latitude) has both a lower min and higher max in winter.

I would give it an A for places to visit it though. I would like to ski, and spend time in that region.

I ve been in Bariloche many many times. Been there in the winter, in the summer, and in spring.

The best experience was in winter: cold and snowy (where i came from -mar del plata, buenos aires province-, theres NO snow, so it was cool to see it), but not very humid so, eventhough the temperatures were really low compared to my city, you didnt felt them as much cause there was no humidty. Dry cold. Cool.

Summer: Been there 3 different times in summer. First time i was there (a lot of years ago, when i was 12) was very "summery" days in the 80s, even reaching 90 one or two times, and colder nights (50-60). The other two (last one was last year) were HORRID. Crazy cold, rainy summers! Last year was a very very hot summer all around the country: the temperatures were 90 almost everyday almost everywhere. I went for Bariloche for 2 weeks (came from Buenos Aires, drove through La Pampa -very desertic HOT, more than a 100 f-) and it was 40 f!!! In the middle of the day!!! In january!! Im not lying. We only had summer clothes and light jackets and ALL DAYS FOR TWO WEEKS WERE RAINY AND FREEZING!!!. Highs were like 55, lows were 40f!!! It was crazy. I got a cold, and all my friends that went with me got a cold too. The other summer i spent year (5 years ago) was almost the same: not as bad, but you never saw the sun, it was really cold for a summer (highs in the 60s) and it didnt felt like summer at all.

Spring: i went in the beggining of november, so spring have already been started for one and a half months. But there, it was still winter, it was SNOWING and raining, and we basically had a horrid time cause we didnt had much winter clothes.

So, my conclusion is that Bariloche has reaaaaally long winters, it rains all the time, summer last 2 weeks (this said by people that live there), and you basically never see the sun. The only good thing about Bariloche weather are the winters, cause at least you expect what you will get. Rest of the year is unexpected. Too bad cause Bariloche is a BEAUTIFUL place.

Anyways, for all that, i give it an E .
