Is Green Acres REALLY the place to be? Let's find out!

My fictitious Green Acres climate features year round showers with nice stretches of sunny and clear periods between them. The combination keeps things alive and green. Humidity exists in mild forms similar to a Seattle summer. Summers start early and last long, with very short winters and shoulder seasons. Thunderstorms roll through several times per year, and there is usually at least one good snow event in the winter before milder temperatures take back hold. Heatwaves may send temperatures into the upper 80s and lower 90s for a few days or up to a week at a time during the summer, but humidity levels tend to drop even lower during these events. Nights cool off to comfortable levels in the upper 50s to lower 60s after the heat of the summer days. Cold snaps in winter aren't overly severe and are normally short lived. Daytime highs less than freezing are possible but not common. Cold snaps, like heatwaves, usually feature drier than normal conditions along with them. It is not uncommon, either, for short winter periods of mild warmth to occur.

For me this is a D+. If it were a little drier, especially in the warm months, I would be more inclined to give it a C- instead. I like that the rain comes in showers and storms rather than constant drizzle and mizzle, and that the periods between are sunny and dry. The Seattle like humidity is OK, but I would still prefer something more like Eastern Washington in that category. I like that winters have snow events too, and that nights actually get freezing regularly for a couple of months of the year, instead of getting oh so annoyingly close to freezing without getting that extra degree or two like here in Seattle. So I guess overall it is better than Seattle, which I do rate a D+, so on second thought I will go ahead and give this a C- in the end.

Close to perfection. Winters are chilly, but short enough not to be a negative.

Wow, I'm giving this the same grade as deneb78. (How dare me). D-. Summers are way too long and too warm, and winters are too short and mild. If summers weren't so long, I'd give it a C.

A+...Four seasons within a very comfortable temperate range and the opportunity to experience snow while still getting warm spells in winter. Good precipitation and I love the precipitation levels too! Green Acres IS the place to be!
