I got bored this evening and created a fictional subarctic climate for you cold lovers, it is called Wintergrad, located at 900m elevation at 48N.

The winters are very cold, with sub-0F nights and days in the single digits F, while in the summer you can expect days around 60F and nights around 40.

I am sure PM would like this climate, cause it is somewhat based on his dream climate... Anyways, this climate gets a B-, too sunny and winter too cold.

This is definetely an A for me... Would be an A+, if it was less sunny and the summers were slightly warmer.

Too cold. But I don't think a 900 m localer at 48 N would be that cold. For example, Calgary is about at 1000 m and located at 50 N. It's summers are around low 70s/high 40s high/low. You'd need an elevation of 2000m, methinks...

F-

I get tremendous satisfaction from rating these awful climates full of minus numbers with F grades.
