What place in the world has the closest autumn climate to where you live?

For Motueka Motueka, New Zealand: Climate, Global Warming, and Daylight Charts and Data I decided on A Coruña - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in Spain.

Maximum temperatures are close, but minimums are nearly 4C/8F colder here- I'm assuming because of clearer skies.

Rainfall is higher here for the first month, but it levels out after that. Rain days are double than for here, even though the rainfall is lower.

Sunshine is the biggest difference, with rather a lot more here, particularly by the end of autumn.

It's certainly harder to find a good match for autumn than summer.

Buenos Aires looks quite similar to Nice; except that it seems there is constant a 2 week delay - i.e. BA's fall temps look like those of Nice 2 weeks earlier at the same period (March in BA = mid-Aug to mid-Sep in Nice instead of Sep; April in BA = mid-Sep to mid-Oct instead of Oct, etc )

I assume we're defining Autumn as Sept-Oct?

That is the transitional quarter from summer to winter, so I'd say Sep-Oct-Nov is the best fit hemisphere-wide. Some places, such as many parts of California, locally define it more as Oct-Nov-Dec, because of the seasonal lag in summer. On the other side, in Alaska autumn is more of an Aug-Sep affair. In many other places such as the Koeppen Cfa zone autumnal weather can drag on into winter.

Yep, going by the calendar. Sep-Nov or Mar-May

You would be happy you don't get their summers. I could find a summer match for here in Chile (Valdiva), but not an autumn one.

Nice has an A autumn for me

BA has an unusual sunshine pattern during autumn, only 15 hours difference between the 3 months- if the figures are correct.
