Chicago (O'Hare Airport) or Berlin?
Stockholm or Kursk?
Kharkiv or Warsaw?
Those pairs have almost same average annual temperature, but they're different at the same time.

I notice that Chicago is at 41 deg North and Berlin is at 52 deg North.
Berlins climate is clearly more oceanic.

I don't think anybody will consider Winnipeg to have warmer climate than Stockholm, despite Winnipeg is located at 50N when Stockholm is on 60N.

I guess it depends on which seasons one focuses on.

I tend to look more at summer temps., so I'd pick Chicago, Stockholm and Kharkiv.

You're right that Winnipeg would be considered colder than Stockholm but its average annual temp. is lower, and its summers are only a few degrees warmer than that of Stockholm.

Personally I look more at winter temps + length of the winter. So I pick Berlin, Stockholm and Warsaw.

Average temps don't determine everthing. Average highs in every month of the year, except winter, are higher in Winnipeg than in Stockholm. But the difference between winter temperatures in Stockholm and Winnipeg is too high to name Winnipeg warmer than Stockholm, even if the first one would have Rome-type summers.

I would consider Chicago warmer than Berlin. Warmer average high for 8 months of the year with a lot more sunshine (and stronger sun at that). Winter would be noticeably colder in Chicago though but that's only 3 months of the year.

Kursk vs Stockholm is tougher because Kursk has a stronger onset of Fall/Winter than Stockholm, but also a stronger onset of spring so it balances out. Stockholm is cooler in the Summer so I guess if we're talking year-around Stockholm would seem very slightly cooler than Kursk.

Kharkiv and Warsaw would be about equal to be honest. Kharkiv is cooler Oct-March but Warsaw is cooler Apr-September. Can't really say one is warmer than the other one in this case, they're kind of a perfect match.
