I have created three very mild to warm fictional climates and 1 frozen one and would like to know which one would be most desirable for you to live in personally.

Comfortville- exact same highs and lows every day, no precipitation ever recorded, no standard deviations. Mild to warm days and slightly cooler nights for sleeping. Most mornings start with a marine layer of low clouds which burn off giving away to sunshine around 10AM on most days. Humidity is pretty low in the afternoons as well. Pretty much like being in a climate controlled office with the exception of the sun shining down on you. NO heating or AC needed ever! Heck, roofs aren't even needed!




Lushland Gardens- A mild to warm rainforest very comfortable, mild temperatures with a very low diurnal range and low standard deviation in terms of records. BUT LOTS AND LOTS of rain- sun sometimes peaks out of the clouds during the drier season but clear, blue skies days are extremely rare (maybe once every five years). Rain can come in anything from light rain to torrential downpours (some can last for days). Thunderstorms on an average of 3 times a month but no tornadoes or severe type of weather. Just heavy straight rain a lot of the time. But the temperatures are VERY much close to room temperatures; you just need a poncho or umbrella a lot! Like Comfortville, no heat or AC (or even fans or extra blankets) are needed.






Paradise Island- warmer temperatures than the other two. NOT as hot and humid as a continental climate's summer but more humidity than an arid climate or Mediterranean climate's summer. Moderately warm days with mild to moderate humidity and slightly cooler nights (but still warm enough to wear a t-shirt and shorts). Constant trade winds keep things from heating up too much so very little standard deviation as well. Precipitation totals are low because most rain comes in the form of light showers (it rains about 7-10 days a month to keep things green and lush even if the amount is light). Torrential downpours are UNHEARD of but heavier rain occurs on occasion. This place gets about one mild thunderstorm a month. Severe weather is unheard of. Some people may need AC while others will be okay without it.





and last but not least, for you cold lovers....

Frozeria
- Vostok's winter temperatures lasting year round. Sunshine hours don't vary so this is located on the equator of a hypothetical earth located far enough from the sun to make the temperatures this cold. It's mostly too cold to snow. A light flurry does fall on the average of once a year and of course it never melts, so it's an icecap covered with a layer of snow.

I chose Lushland Gardens. Comfortville's temperatures were better, but I couldn't live somewhere with ZERO precipitation. I like rain. I like clouds. I like vegetation. Blending Lushland's weather with Comfortville's temperature would be perfect for me.

For extra credit, guess which U.S. cities Comfortville, Lushland Gardens, and Paradise Island are loosely based on!

You do realize that zero precipitation means there is zero natural vegetation, right?

Paradise Island. If temperatures are gonna be warm year round it might as well be nice with some variation and not too much rain. And as for Frozeria, I don't even think the hardcore cold lovers will pick that, lol.

Firstly, there isn't zero precipitation.. it's just low. As long as I can go swimming at the beach every day of the year that's all I care about. Besides, you can always irrigate places where you want to have plant life.

Paradise Island gets light precipitation throughout the year and things are green there because the light rain occurs reliably several times each month- it rains about twice a week; it just rarely rains hard.


It's Comfortville that relies on irrigation solely.
