Are you implying that it's too warm or too coolt? Its latitude is 33' and it seems rather cool for that latitude (if you're implying that former).

Oh, the December record high is like 19C higher than July's record high. So I don't get what you mean there?

I give the place a solid C. Summers are a bit to cool (to much like Britain, though still slightly warmer than London and the Southeast), and nights average far to cold, definitely in both summer and winter (far colder than here!), so Barbie's may not be that comfortable... Rainfall is perfect! What are the sunshine avs, does anyone know? This must be a mountainous area of NSW, far from the much nicer climate of the coast of Queensland I'm afraid! LOL

Unfortunately, there are no sunshine stats for it. But it does get 80 clear days per year. In comparison, Sydney gets 100-110 clear days (depending on the suburb) and it averages at 2,600 hours of sunshine. Hobart gets 40 clear days and around 2100 hours of sun.

Going by this calculation, I'm gonna say that its sunshine hours would be around 2,450.

Summers not too bad but winters look too mild for proper winter weather but too cold to be pleasant though I do recall seeing that this town had quite a heavy snowfall during the winter just past.

If sunshine is 2450 hours then a C otherwise if much lower then I don't seen much difference with the UK which would be a D.

Seems odd that it has reached -3C in a summer month when the all time low is only -8.7C. Also that 7 of the record minima seem to have occurred since 2006 despite the records going back to 1965.

B-
It's too cold in summer (especially at night), and a little too warm in winter. Also, the winter record lows are too mild.

Really good for the latitude. Could stand with warmer summers but winters look very real - not sure what the sunshine hours are like in this part of NSW, at 2400 it would be alright. B-.

Australia has been very extreme and deviant in this millennium.

Sunshine hours would definitely be around 2400.

The summer lows are rather cool. And they've record subfreezing lows. They surely aren't that warm.

It's rather similar to Paris, IMO.
