Duluth, Minnesota - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
and
Quebec City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The two cities are remarkably similar in temperature, with long, severe winters and short but warm summers. Duluth is drier and sunnier, QC has more snow.

Quebec City. Looks slightly less continental and therefore slightly less variable day by day, which I prefer.

Lake Superior might throw a wrench in there though, resulting in slightly cooler summer temperatures thanks to the odd 60 degree day or something in the middle of July. That would be a nice experience.

I'm impressed how cold Quebec City is. Goes to show that eastern North America is capable of cold as much as the Midwest, though Duluth has more extreme lows. Quebec City is 390 miles north of Boston the same distance as Edinburgh is from London. But Boston averages 11°C warmer than Quebec City in January and 4°C warmer than Quebec City in July.

For January, this averages out to a 1°C drop for every 57 km north or a 1°F for every 20 miles north.

Duluth. Slightly warmer summer, slightly more sunshine and less precip./snow.
If Quebec City had Montreal's weather would be much better.

During summer time, eastern U.S./Canada has very low temperature variation between north and south, while during winter time it is huge temperature difference.

Example... During summer, temperature wise between Montreal down to Miami is only few degrees difference, but during winter it is HUGE difference.

^^^Interesting Goes to show how large bodies of water can influence weather

Duluth wins by a lot for more sunshine/less snow. Snow is good in moderation but both have too much imo
