Easternly features a semi continental climate with cool winters and warm summers. Rainfall is fairly low and evenly distributed throughout the year, but with a slight peak in the fall.

Major factors affecting the climate include the fact that the city is sheltered in the lee of large hills and mountains to its south and west. High ground to the west reduces rainfall and cloud from frontal systems in the cooler season. High ground to the south acts to generate something of a "foehn effect" in the summer season when the prevailing southerly winds blow, and in the right set-up this can cause the temperature to rise very high, as much as 40-42°C with a sudden drop in humidity.

Because of its shelter from terrain to the west and south the city enjoys a large quantity of sunshine.

During winter fog can however, be quite a problem, and this can significantly reduce sunshine amounts if it lingers all day, and cause other more severe problems. Air frosts are common from early November - mid April.

Thunderstorms occur on about 20 days per year.

B-. Wetter in all months, and slightly warmer winters are the only improvements needed. Ditching the fog would be a plus as well.

I'd give this a B+ bordering on A-. Very nice overall with two minor exceptions. I would like more rainfall, closer to 40 inches. Also, I would like to see summer lows in June, July and August in the low to mid 60's as opposed to 50's. I'm supposing with the dry air and lows in the 50's early to late evening in summer could get chilly quickly. However, the climate here looks perfect for sleeping. Oranges would grow in this climate as well as many palm trees.

Quite liveable. Reminds me of some inland Southern Hemisphere places.

Good temperatures, crappy precipitation. Not the best, not the worst, just a C.

Good temps and precipitation, let down by cool overnight lows. Looks like a city in the Caucasus.

Looks pretty nice. Summer highs look somewhat high, but the low humidity should keep it pleasant. The nights are a bit chilly also, but should be good for sleeping. I like the sunshine hours too. The precipitation peak could be less tame, but very nice climate anyway. B+
