Nain, Newfoundland and Labrador - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Such high precipitation averages with such low average temps in winter is pretty astonishing for a non-mountainous climate.

I like cold climates but I will have to give this a D+. The plus is for warm record highs in summer. I'm not too sure if those winter record highs are accurate though...

No better than E/E-. F if sunshine is under 1800 hours.

I give it an A. Winters although they go on for too long have near-ideal temperatures. The record lows during Winter are great, unlike some of these coastal climates, and I love the very high snowfall (with a very long season as well, September-June). The too-long Winters are balanced out by the nice Summer temperatures, with great average temperatures, decently cold record lows, and tame record highs. I must say this is a great find.

Horrible winters, chilly non-summers, tomb-like sunshine totals... Hellish, an F+ only because there is some warm season, however feable.

Record highs or low don’t determine the average charter of any climate. So despite the fact there has been some hot temps (90’s a few times)…and a few times it went down to 40 below zero F…the average weather is what one would have to deal with most of the time:

There is truly no summer in Nain. Oonly one month has a high that hits just barley hits 60 F (like April here in the Middle Atlantic coast)…and the other 2 or 3 warm season months are in the 50’s (lol). The summer lows are cruel – in the 40’s. From November through March – the daily highs are below 30 F, and the highs in Jan/Feb are truly unreasonable (7 F!). Add in the 200 inches of annual snowfall and low sun hrs, and this would be a tough climate for most people 9 months a year.
