I'll give it a B+...summers are a little warm...winters are a tad on the cold side. Precipitation pattern is optimal. Sunshine hours are...acceptable. I didn't put too much thought into the precip/snow days so don't analyze it too much.

B+, snow is excellent, but too hot in summer especially overnight.

I give it a C+, which is unusually generous with a climate that has summers this hot and humid. The averages in winter are great, as are the cold record highs. Record lows are quite decent, and the snowfall is stupendous at over 200 inches per year. It warms up too fast in spring, and the summers are way too hot and humid, especially at night. Those record lows above 50F are just awful. Record highs aren't bad at all. Sunshine, though higher than ideal, is acceptable.

Ordinarily it would receive a D but due to the abundant snowfall and nice winters I bumped it up.

As far as I'm concerned it could do with much cooler and drier summers. 52 inches of precipitation is higher than I like.

B-, mainly because the times of the year that I love the best besides winter (55-70F for highs) are wet and brief. December-February are a bit too cold for me too.
