This is what this kid Randomguy can't do and ends up polluting threads with stubbornly ridiculous statements.
Still is sunny and mild in July and August

It’s currently 15C and sunny here so almost like a Reykjavik summer day and it feels lovely

Is this a joke? For the majority of the world this climate would be a cold summer.

15c is warmer then Reykjavik's July average high.

As for "sunny", 174 hours of sunshine in June, in the land of the midnight sun is a very poor showing. Unless you're allergic to sunshine or something, then it's great.

Only slightly warmer, it could easily get to 15 on a July day. 174 hours of sun in June is good whether that's in the Southern Hemisphere or in the Arctic.

You seem to be missing the point, it's winter. Yet warmer than their July.

Sunshine percentage matters more than accumulative hours due to latitude differences, unless you're one of those flat-Earthers. Although nothing would surprise me at this point.

No I’m not a flat earther!

Winter or summer, current weather of 16C is delightful.

Accumulative hours matter more.

Yes, I meant in summer. And I was being sarcastic. People complain of being cold and freezing their *sses of it goes below 70F in SoCal.

Really, even in Santa Monica? Most of the year is below 70°F during the day. And that's warm not cold or freezing. Santa Monica has never gone below freezing.

Would a person who likes cloudy skies, be justified in referring to somewhere like San Francisco, as cloudy during summer? - I think not
