How is that a fair comparison?

Turkey is situated above 36'N and it mostly consists of (dry) continental climates and a few temperate maritime influenced climates. Turkey's warmest cities (Iskenderun and Antalya) are at 36'N and they have winters only slighter warm than Pelotas's, considering their latitude (where they actually should be cooler).

Pelotas is at 31'S and is way in the subtropics. Yet its winters are only slightly warmer than the warmest places in Turkey in winter. So, if anything, Pelotas is actually cool for its latitude in the winter. Even Australian coastal cities at 31'S have warmer winters.

P.S. I don't see how a 11C difference between summer and winter is "very close" and "like a tropical climate". That's a moderately seasonal range to me. If you want quasi-tropical temperature ranges then look no further than places like this.

I hate tropical climates, therefore I give it a F. It is far from my taste. I even gave it a F for my city's climate, which is so much better than this tropical climate.

I even gave F for my city's climate because I had thought by turkish standards since there are too many cities above sea level which have continental climate in Turkey, therefore they are colder than my city in winter, which is seaside. But now I regret that I did it.

I also dislike tropical and subtropical climates, but I agree with Ethereal that an F is an exaggeration. If you rate Pelotas an F, what would you rate a climate like Dallol or Vostok Station?

Wtf Pelotas does have a seasonal range. Does 81F feel the same as 61F to you? It's not that far off from the wonderclimates https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buenos_Aires#Climate or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montevideo#Climate

Really? Its coldest month is like my city's April and July and August is hotter here than its hottest months. What kind of seasonal change is that? And I live in a city that has oceanic climate.

16C is much different from 27C. It may have a limited seasonal range (and much too small for me) but it certainly has noticeable seasons. And with a mean of 12C in July, it is far below the threshold for a tropical climate.

Vostok Station is not even an inhibated place. The coldest inhibated place is Oymyakon.

In Antarctica, I think the biggest problem is the storm. It is incredibly windy in winter.

Shhhh, be quiet. Everyone knows a winter is only when the average January highs are like -25C and you get 600 inches of snow a year!
