How would you rate this climate? Warm (but not too hot) with constant trade winds, moderate humidity (neither dry nor muggy), slight cooling down at night (but still warm enough to comfortably wear shorts and a tee) and light but consistent rain year round with a slight peak of precipitation in summer (no dry months but no heavy rains either- just light showers about 7-10 days each month with an occasional brief heavy rain). Lots of sunshine, warm waters, beautiful beaches, and lush green scenery. Very narrow range of temperatures including records. Also all time record rainfall in 24 hours is only 2.87 inches. Longest consecutive period with no rain is only 10 days. Rainfall may be light but it's reliable so droughts are unheard of. Thunderstorms occur about once a month on the average but they are never severe. Tornadoes and hurricanes are unheard of. Record windspeed is only 42 mph but there are always trade winds of around 10 mph daily.

Okay; rate away!

It doesn't actually look all that different from Honolulu except having more sunshine and more even temperatures...
I give it an A++++++
Excellent climate

I give this climate an A + as a vacation destination for myself but a C for living in; I like having a cool to cold season. The precipitation year round and the once a month thunderstorms would be an improvement over my current climate (which has bone dry summers and only 1 or 2 thunderstorms a year) but I'd also be giving up the crisp frosty mornings on clear mornings in winter and cool nights year round. So for me it's about an even trade off.

Not a bad climate but not an exciting one either. OTOH, I'd love swimming in the warm ocean year round so maybe I'll upgrade it to a C+. Yes, it is loosely based on Honolulu, which I love visiting but would never go out of my way to live there .

The temperatures are too warm, especially lows, it has about 1500 hours of sunshine too much, and it definitely can't stay lush all year long with only 550 mm of precipitation. D

D. I don't like heat year-round, but at least it isn't brutal.

D. Of course, it isn't extremely hot, but it doesn't really get cool down. All time record low 16C? Average low 21C in the 'coolest' month? I like cool nights and mornings.

A bit bland and a bit dry but extremely pleasant. B+, would be higher with more rain or variability.

F. No variation whatsoever and a year round summer. I'm sure it would be a great place to visit for a warm vacation, but I wouldn't like to live there.
