c normally but this year we'd rather not have rain fall until the end of the month and temps after the snow melts could be a bit higher (please)

A is the best because the others are too wet and/or have too many precipitation days.

"C" would probably be the most comfortable, but also be very boring. The lowest temperature and highest temperature are only 29 degrees apart!

It's a toss up between "A" and "B", but I would pick "B". The cold spell towards the end of the month would kill the bugs, while the heat towards the beginning of the month would be highly enjoyable. 93F with a low of 59F isn't too bad, considering the dewpoint is probably low, and the relatively cool nighttime temperatures would lend themselves well to leaving the windows open.

C looks great, never too warm nor too cold, and with a lot of clouds, fog and rain.

All of them are too warm (I prefer 46F average rather than 60F average), but I choose option B, since it has the greatest amount of cool weather.

C for me. It closely resembles December here (49-68F) for temps. It does sound damp though, 2.8 inches over 15 days is pretty lame. The other climates are too cold or have too many rainy days.

C probably the best option but would depend on which of A and C was sunniest.

B is definitely the worst with a ghastly mix of hot 90F days and cold foggy days. I don't want days below 10C in May but unfortunately get them most years here though never as low as 5C as late as the 22nd
