They all suck. All of them are wet and humid, except for Dubai which is still humid and way too hot.

I guess I'll go with New York. C climate, a bit better than mine.

1. New York


2. Tokyo (at least its not too rainy in winter)
3. London (dry and compared to these s*** places it's not so cloudy)
4. Sydney (boring and rainy)



5. Dubai (gets points for its dryness)



6. Hong Kong (it has a cool season and its drier than Singapore)


7. Singapore

Best to worst:

NYC---a warmer wetter version of where I live. 4 seasons, and the only one with snow. Summer is a few degrees too warm.
Sydney--good year-round, mild winters
London--good summers but Sydney has better winters
Tokyo--too warm in summer

Hong Kong-too humid and hot most of the year
Singapore-too humid and hot all year

Dubai-terrible summers

Sydney is sunnier than these cities by far and it is drier than Tokyo. Also, going by the 0.2mm threshold, London gets more rainy days than Sydney (London uses 1mm to count rainy days, hence it's "fewer" rainy days). Furthermore, London's precipitation is lighter, whilst Sydney is prone to heavy rain.

London for being the cloudiest and most comfortable. Tough second choice between New York and Tokyo. I like Tokyo's lower sunshine and higher precipitation, but New York's winters are better.

Well London and Tokyo have better winters and Tokyo has a winter dry season so I'd still pick them over Sydney.

London gets between 140-160 days using the trace threshold depending on the station, Though many of those days do not actually see any precipitation (but are caused by dew forming).. I thought Sydney gets about 152 days, which is pretty much the same as London and Melbourne?
