An interesting semi-arid Mexican climate.. how do you rate it?

I give it a C+ due to colder than desired winters.

A-, very nice! Sunshine hours about 3100 according to one source.

Hot summer days but some relief at night. Winter mornings probably frequently frosty but would warm up quickly. So quite similar to highland climates of the American Southwest, but with warmer winters.

Two snowfalls per year on average? Any idea on the median? I would guess that most years feature no snow at all and some quite a few (a situation similar to the American South). Certainly the occurence of snow sets it apart from SoCal climates with similar temp profiles. Loses points for aridity.

It seems a lot like inland SoCal (San Fernando valley or similar) but more interesting. Any idea as to thunderstorm frequency?

A-, not bad, tempered by the elevation - 1415 metres- that is higher than any "town" here ( if you don't include alpine villages).
The rainfall of 477mm is slightly better than semi-arid in my book, and 3 solid months with over 100mm of rain there.
I like the fact that minimum temps stay moderate to low throughout the year.

Sounds quite pleasant, only I would like to move that rainy season out of the hot summer and into another part of the year.

A-

Interesting that June has highest avg max temps, certainly no seasonal lag

Also interesting that it is "cooler" than El Paso,TX,
and EP is about 250 miles due north but at a slightly lower elevation.
Winters are almost the same but El Paso has a hotter, drier summer.

C+

Good dryness overall. Rain should be more evenly distributed and summers less hot. Not bad.

C. It would've got a B, but I downgraded it for sharing its name with that silly rat dog thing.

I give it a B for having lots of sunshine, hot summers, comfortable winter days with cold nights, occasional snow, and "just enough" rain. I would have given it a B+, but I also don't care for the rodents who get passed off as "purse dogs".
