Detroit has not. Unless you count downtown Detroit which there is no data available. Windsor Riverside could represent that though.

I doubt you'll find any from Brazil that look like this. Hudson Bay? Nope: subtropical Southern Ontario.

This one in Brazil is pretty good. Maybe we can stretch the subtropics to include Winnipeg as well because they can get pretty hot in the summer I’ve heard

I just don't see how a climate can be considered subtropical when the average temperature in its coldest month is below freezing.

It’s really not as far as I’m concerned, but according to Koppen, it is. I prefer the 0C mean temp for that.

Windsor is a mid-continental climate. I'll leave it at that.

A mid continental climate that is moderated by the Great Lakes, which makes a big difference when it comes to extreme cold events, and why it is zone 6b.

Its nowhere near sub-tropical! If you can't grow a banana its not sub-tropical - in fact scrub that, they grow bananas on the Scilly Isles (average winter night time low +6 Deg C) and even they're not sub-tropical.
