Carven City is a subtropical fictional city located on the 24th parallel and at an elevation of 1,000m / 3,300ft ASL. This elevation helps to keep night time temperatures moderate and humidity tolerable. The city is very sunny with a peak in rainfall during the brief summer wet season.



Personally, I give it a B.

Ignore where it says "mm" in the imperial table (forgot to edit that out).

Quite nice, a bit on the warm side but I like the number of thunder days and summer rainfall maximum.

C. Too sunny, and too dry during the winter.

Min temps are nice and max temps are good for the coolest 8 months, but summer highs are just a little more than I would like.

I'm surprised you limited thunderstorms to just half the year, although that would stop one getting blase about them.

B+, looks pretty good to me though I would prefer winters to be a little cooler and the precipitation to be spread a little more evenly.

It's typical of climates at this latitude to feature a winter dry season, the area is too far south for any interference from cold fronts and mid-latitude depressions in winter, and is largely affected by the subtropical ridge so kept dry in that time.

From late Oct-Mar/Apr it could be perceived as boring, indeed, however my preference would always be to at least have a sunny cooler season than a cloudy damp/wet one. One wonders if it would be possible to get bored of the sun living here. However the wet season will take care of that anyway with high numbers of intense thunderstorms and downpours.
