I agree 1000% with this statement.

There is a regular here who hates the hell out of me because I dissed his precious London climate. Was even called a troll once or twice because I rated London lower than what he would rate it. Hilarious...
There are plenty of regions in NW Europe and elsewhere, with similar climates to the UK -shouldn't they get a mention also?

Yep. That's why I included Northern Europe as a region with a terrible climate.

I find it hard grouping NW Europe altogether. Most of Germany, Czech, Poland and Netherlands are horrible, but not all of France and Switzerland is bad. With the UK, 99% of it has an awful climate, maybe besides Isle of Wight and Portsmouth (they're not bad). So it's easier to "group" the latter.

Btw, many Scandinavian cities are not bad for their very northerly latitude (i.e. Stockholm). So I can't say all of Northern Europe is bad.

Someone who rates London F and then rates Paris a C/D either knows nothing about their climate, or is trolling for a response. If you were consistent then I wouldn't have said you were a troll, but then I seem to recall you saying at one point that you liked London's summers too?

1. You were actually not even the person I had in my mind.
2. I haven't rated London an F, nor have I rated Paris a C.
3. Paris is 2-3C warmer than London in the summer. So a rating difference can be expected.

Both London and Paris may have pleasant summers (what you "recalled" was right), but they're overall horrible climates when it comes to their tedious sunshine hours. But then again, even Yakutsk has nice summers - Doesn't mean it's a good climate overall. Every bad climate has *some* good qualities and every good climate has some bad qualities.

Paris is about 1.5c warmer than London if you compare suburban stations in both cities, London s about 1.5c warmer in winter so it evens out.

I definitely remember you rating London an F before. Who did you have in mind then?

Equatorial climates (bar the Galapagos Islands) at sea level.
So called oceanic climates at 50 degrees latitude or more, either hemisphere.
Severe continental climates with no window of moderate warmth.
Most of the Arabic world and Saharan Africa.

London is an E+ to me, maybe a D- on a good year. Perhaps you saw the F on my early posts (circa 2013). At that time I happened to give F's for a lot of cities (A's too). Thanks to the forumers and their comprehensive climate posts, I started to see lots of extreme climates that actually deserve the F (i.e. subarctic, polar, tropical rainforest, etc) - I now tend to give these sort of places an F.

London isn't that bad tbh. It's basically the same as here for sunshine and rainfall, but with temperatures a bit warmer in every month.
There are obviously much, much worse places to live.

BTW, I'm a hot, sunny summer man, so I'll never be happy with the climate in this country. It's an easy climate to live with day to day though.
