E / 55% and it's technically Dwc, albeit VERY borderline with ET, because the July average is 50.1 F / 10.05 C.

A straight F, instead of an F-. Kinda reminds me of Detroit (so far in 2015).

I do wonder if there is so much snow most of the year, that the actual topography would be an icescape, like an EF climate, in spite of the technicality that the brief time the temperature averages above 0¤C, making it semantically an ET.

The chance of a cold hardiest tree like a larch surviving at least 41 years in this fictional climate is not 0.000%. In fact it's not even 0% if the tree is raised right and planted on a southerly aspect. Maybe 10%. If you found the most favorable location in this town and planted 100 Dahurian larch trees, there would not be 0 living trees in 41 years. That said, only a few trees (probably 15-25) would survive the first winter and by 41 years maybe 5 would be left.

This climate is a borderline tundra, but not the coldest tundra out there. Still a solid F.

actually this would not be a polar climate. it would be a subpolar/subarctic climate because it has one month with a 24-hour mean of 50.1°F/10.05°C.

normally on a traditional scale (A, B, C, D, F) i'd give it a D- but since there is E i'll give it a solid E. could be worse.

I'd like a climate like that, definitely. I'm a fan of cold weather, and I can wear a winter coat all year round. Heavy clothing makes me feel safer.

But, I would have to give this one a B+, because that's a little too heavy of a snowfall, unless there's some plan in place to regularly get the snow removed, and to prevent schools and businesses and basically the hypothetical city of wherever this climate is located, from shutting down
all the time from frequent snow days.

A climate like that would also require houses to be built on pilings (unless the climate doesn't include permafrost, while I like cold weather, I despise seeing everything having to be built above ground)

D-. Would never want to live there even though I'm a cold lover. There's no summer season. And winters are too cold. I don't like very sunny places but the sunshine to be tripled in each month and then I'll consider it. Although it's better then Yuma and Death Valley.
