Winter is not having +8℃ average low in the coldest months. It is the average low temperature of April where I live.

Do people seriously not understand that winter is a meteorological season of lower temps and shorter days and not the word to describe cold weather???? Winter is NOT defined by a certain temp threshold but merely by having cooler temps and shorter days. Pelotas does not have a COLD winter but it certainly has a winter unless you want to make some idiotic argument that 12C and 22C are the same thing.

To be fair, if you google "winter", 99% of the images will feature snow. atsizat is just not using the scientific definition of winter but what most people think of when they hear or read the word "winter".

D, too much rain, not very much sun for that latitude, too much humidity and summers are probably very muggy.

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.
Fair enough about your F rating, but Pelotas is just not tropical.

Just because Turkish cities have continental-esque climates (colder winters, hotter summers), doesn't mean that places with a narrower range are now all tropical. Sure, they may be tropical for you, but you shouldn't outright label them as that.

Is Sydney tropical to you too, considering how similar it is to Pelotas?

To be fair, your city isn't bad if you like seasonal variations. It has relatively distinct summers and winters. I think you're being too harsh on Izmit.

Vostok Station is not even an inhibated place. The coldest inhibated place is Oymyakon.
Welcome to the city data board, where we also happen to rate uninhabited places.

Okay, a fairer question: If Pelotas and Izmit are Fs, then what would you rate Hong Kong, Rio Di Janeiro, Miami, Singapore, etc?

Pelotas actually gets a bit more annual sunshine hours than Rio...but that is not saying much. I'd still take Rio's climate over Pelotas due to the warmer year round temps.

Cities that have oceanic climates also have so much more temperature difference during the year. The temperature change in Pelotas is way too low by oceanic climate standards already. My city, Izmit has oceanic climate also. Izmit is seaside too. Continental climates have much more temperature difference than my city, Izmit already.

I regret having rated my city F but I can't go back in time and change my raiting
Rate my city's climate

I give F for all of the places you said above, since F is the lowest point.

I dislike the climate of my city, Izmit for being way too warm in winter. Not a likeable climate. I agree with you on Izmit.

Wrong.

Washington DC, Milan, Sochi and NYC are humid subtropical and yet they have a bigger temperature range than say, London, Paris and Wellington.
