Big Bear Lake, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I prefer Urmia thanks to its colder winters, despite the hotter summers.

The slight increase in rain at BBL in July and August is pretty interesting.

Here's a dam near Urmia:

I choose Urmia despite the fact that it is drier, because I would hate those chilly summer nights at Big Bear Lake.

Big Bear Lake for me. The climate is more moderate, and thus it has warm winter highs (too warm) but also cooler summer days and much chillier summer nights than Urmia. Urmia's hot summers are a liability. Big Bear is wetter in the winter and thus snowier than Urmia. Neither one of them is all that good (47/20F in winter is quite subpar), but given a choice between a climate that has chillier summers, warmer winters, and snowier overall; and a climate that has hotter summers, colder winter afternoons, and is less snowy overall, I choose the former.

Big Bear Lake for me, too. Summer highs are too warm, but at least the dew point would probably be low. It looks like a beautiful place.

Urmia for me. A close match. Even though Urmia is drier in summer, I would still choose it for the warmer summer minimums.

Big Bear Lake.. winters look warmer with higher chance of warming up. Summers look alright except that the nights are too chilly.

They are both nice, but I vote for Urmia. Looks like it could be an Eastern Washington climate, actually!

Urmia wins for me - the annual temperature range is greater, summers and winters are both very good.
