Looking Aloft: Finally...how do we calculate snow ratios?
true.

I have updated the climate, But i will post it soon.

UPDATE:

Rate the fictional climate: Yoravkuta-jorevkuta.png

The maximum snow ratio is closer to 50:1, But actually is possible.

For those who were curious: The maximum possible is 100:1, It would have to be under -20 degrees for the snow ratio to be possible.

Don't worry heat lovers, You will receive the tropical dreams next week.

It was very brutal. But weather observations have been available since July 1933.


High: -71
Low: -95

Winds up to 40 mph. People did not go outside, there was no school, no work. It also dumped 42.5 in. of snowfall. The population went from 5,213 to only 428 ppl, They left on February 3 when it was only -27/-50 and 2 mph wind.

Wind chill: -161, Probably way beyond my own tolerance limits.

After a brutally cold January 1959, they headed to a warm February, It had the highest February temperature at 7 degrees on the 25th. But it only received a month total of 2.5 in.

F- is far too high of a grade for this.

But unfortunately that's the lowest option that exists.

Summer days are kind of warmish and there's snow, but it's way too cold overall.

Miserable. Absolutely miserable. Beyond miserable, actually.

Winters are extremely cold. Summers warm up, but only briefly. Even June is cold during the day and May freezing during the day!

Also, the permafrost would SUCK. A mean annual temperature of -7.3F? NO THANKS!

Polar nights would suck too. Even the relative low sun period here in Tennessee is barely manageable in some years.

The climate is very snowy despite low overall precipitation. I'd be fully expecting it to stay on the ground up to 3/4 of the year with those monthly means. Yuck!

Records suck. Coldest month potentially as low as -104F and never rising above 3F? That's some Antarctic-type cold there!

Last but not least, there would be absolutely no trees, not even ones like Dahurian Larch and Silver Birch. I hate deciduous trees, but NO TREES?! I know the monthly mean in the warmest month is 52.7F, but that wouldn't be warm enough to counteract the winters. Holdridge seems to have a better idea of the warm limit for tundras than Koppen and Trewartha, given the lack of trees in some areas near Norilsk and presence of them in cold-summer parts of Patagonia (e.g. Ushuaia).

The diurnal temperature ranges seem quite unrealistic

Sounds like Vorkuta.
My rating is D-, because it's way too cold in winter and too cool in summer. I lke UV index though.
