By hot summer subarctic, I mean a climate where the hottest month has a mean >23°C and the coldest month has a mean <-3.0°C, and less than 4 months have means >10°C. I'm guessing that there is nowhere in the world that meets all of these criteria, but where comes the closest?

Tahe County, Heilongjiang, China averages 18.5C in July. I'm sure there are borderline areas slightly further south (and warmer) in the province, but this was the warmest subarctic station I could find nationally.

Toronto is clearly humid continental, there is no dispute here. It has a higher yearly average than Minneapolis. I would say that Saskatoon is quite warm for a borderline sub Arctic climate (though its classified as humid continental, I feel that it is more or less close to sub Arctic), given its average summer temperatures. 25/11 C is the average in july.

That's what I was thinking. I'd be hard pressed to find a subarctic climate with Julys as warm as Yakutsk's. As if its 25C highs aren't enough, the 13C average lows are relatively high as well. Fairbanks comes close, but is still decidedly short. Bodie, California has similarly warm summer highs, but lows are much lower and thus so are the monthly averages.

Neither of those cities is subarctic, especially not Toronto.
