Late fall, winter, spring, and the first half of summer features nearly 100% possible sunshine and dry conditions. The trade off for the ample sunshine and clear skies are rather chilly temperatures, however a strong sun can mitigate them somewhat. The wet season lasts from about mid-August to the end of November. This time of year features the most variable weather with a mix of overcast skies, partly cloudy skies, rain, and even some occasional snow in October and November.

I give it a D. Way too sunny and dry for more than half the year. The wet and cloudier part of the year breaks the monotony and saves it from a F.

I suppose I'll give it a B. The temperatures merit an A rating, and might have garnered an A+ rating if it wasn't for the perpetually dry and sunny summers. However, the nearly complete lack of precipitation and snow in winter really brings down the grade. If the 19 inches of precipitation was more evenly distributed, perhaps with a peak in winter and a trough in summer, I'd be much more receptive.

C. The cold without snow downgrades it for me; August and September year round would be more desirable.

Average high for the hottest month of 64 degrees? No, thanks. I give it a D. The only things saving this climate from an F grade are the ample sunshine and the fact that the high temps in the winter time are positive degrees Fahrenheit.
