Ideally

below -30c/-22F = 0 days
from -30C/-22F to -20C/-4F = 2 days
from -20C/-4F to -10C/14F = 15 days
from -10C/14F to 0C/32F = 40 days
from 0C/32F to 10C/50F = 84 days
from 10C/50F to 20C/68F = 95 days
from 20C/68F to 30C/86F = 89 days
from 30C/86F to 40C/104F = 35 days
from 40C/104F to 50C/122F = 5 days
above 50C/122F = 0 days

What I actually get

below -30c/-22F = 0 days
from -30C/-22F to -20C/-4F = 0 days
from -20C/-4F to -10C/14F = 0 days
from -10C/14F to 0C/32F = 5 days
from 0C/32F to 10C/50F = 85 days
from 10C/50F to 20C/68F = 155 days
from 20C/68F to 30C/86F = 109 days
from 30C/86F to 40C/104F = 11 days
from 40C/104F to 50C/122F = 0 days
above 50C/122F = 0 days

Only a rough estimation

below -30c/-22F = 0 days
from -30C/-22F to -20C/-4F = 0 days
from -20C/-4F to -10C/14F = 5 days
from -10C/14F to 0C/32F = 71 days
from 0C/32F to 10C/50F = 108 days
from 10C/50F to 20C/68F = 82 days
from 20C/68F to 30C/86F = 80 days
from 30C/86F to 40C/104F = 2 days
from 40C/104F to 50C/122F = 0 days
above 50C/122F = 0 days

from -20C/-4F to -10C/14F = 5 days
from -10C/14F to 0C/32F = 45 days
from 0C/32F to 10C/50F = 70 days
from 10C/50F to 20C/68F = 75 days
from 20C/68F to 30C/86F = 145 days
from 30C/86F to 40C/104F = 25 days
from 40C/104F to 50C/122F = 0 days
above 50C/122F = 0 days

The leap year day could be randomly choosen from those alternatives. Could be interesting to begin spring with a good old 50C on Feb 29.

No idea what I actually get, except those below -30C max temp days, as a remember all of them by heart. And of course those days above 40C, as they have never occurred.

1981-2010:
below -30C/-22F = 0.03 days
below 0C/32F = 61 days
above 25C/77F = 16 days

My ideal:

below -30c/-22F = 1 day
from -30C/-22F to -20C/-4F = 1 day
from -20C/-4F to -10C/14F = 5 days
from -10C/14F to 0C/32F = 45 days
from 0C/32F to 10C/50F = 60 days
from 10C/50F to 20C/68F = 85 days
from 20C/68F to 30C/86F = 106 days

from 40C/104F to 50C/122F = 2 days
above 50C/122F = 0 days

Actual (Perth 2012):

below -30c/-22F = 0 days
from -30C/-22F to -20C/-4F = 0 days
from -20C/-4F to -10C/14F = 0 days
from -10C/14F to 0C/32F = 0 days

from 20C/68F to 30C/86F = 216 days
from 30C/86F to 40C/104F = 78 days
from 40C/104F to 50C/122F = 8 days
