This is an interesting climate. One that I wouldn't be that bothered about, despite the coldish winter. Here's why.

> Cold but sunny, calm dry winters. Sun takes the edge off the cold.
> Warm humid summers, but not too much blazing sun, so a bit more comfortable
> Thunderstorms only happen on about 10 days a year. Still, it's more than Buxton gets.
> Winters are very dry, so snow amounts to only a few flurries despite the temperature.

Unusual in that its winters are sunnier than the summer.

I give it a D+

C- for me. Winter is too cold and dry. Summer could be a bit sunnier, but has nice temps.

I don't think I would call it an interesting climate though, low rainfall and cloudy summers aren't very interesting to me.

C+ Really my only problem with it is June through September being too warm, but at least it's not truly hot. October, April, and especially May could be a bit cooler too, but that's not a huge problem.

C+

Summers a little too warm and humid. Sunshine on the high side. Winter temperatures are refreshing and crisp.

Winters are too cold; summers are too cloudy.

That's a D.

Temperatures are not that dissimilar to NYC. I like the lingering warmth in the early fall. Sunshine is really sub-par given how dry the climate is. Precipitation is really inadequate. I give it a C.

Not a bad climate at all, pretty good for me actually. Good winters, July and August a tad on the warm side and summer lows too high but nothing too unbearable, and not too much sunshine. B

Inoffensive for a continental climate, but still not that awesome. D+...

I can actually think of real-life examples that excel in all those categories a great deal more than your fictional one. Beijing is a great exemplar of this type of climate:

Beijing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My favorite climates in the continental zone ( one of my least favorite climate types ) all straddle the southern border of east Asia's Dwa areas:

Dalian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oddly, China's north gets a ton more sun than its south-east, which contain what I'd argue to be the worst of the humid subtropics:

Chongqing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
