They should really do dewpoints next, seriously.
I quite like mean maximums and minimums. Records are interesting, but mean max and min are useful as they're the most extreme temps you'll see more or less regularly. I also like the Australian BOM's 1st and 9th decile temps which have a similar function.

But the more things you have the less likely they are to be measured in the same way and presenting them in a standardized box could be misleading.

Wind speed ofcourse. It's very important to interpret a climate. I hate wind so much, unless in a thunderstorm.

Dew points but more importantly wind speed data (min/max/avg). Wind is an underrated criterion...

Dewpoints are slowly being integrated into the climate boxes. Sydney has dewpoint data on its climate box.

They should add average snow depth, and highest low and lowest high temperatures for each month.
