https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clim...s_Virginia.png There are a few Dfb microclimates in some elevated areas only. The main town of Shenandoah is still Cfa humid-subtropical.

It's clearly sarcasm from 'Baltic Whaler' (obviously a troll)

The sad part is I've heard much more ridiculous stuff on this weather forum that's sincere, can't even tell if something is real or a parody on here.

Ditto. I think the Dallas/Minneapolis/Miami thread is the best example of that, you can't get much more ridiculous than seriously using logic that dictates places like Savannah and Gainesville are more similar to Minneapolis than Miami.

As for the thread, I stand by what I said before: you can't be Cfa with no high sun seasonal shift to tropical trade winds. Virginia has that, New Zealand does not.

While NZ doesn't get classic trade winds during summer, it does get very frequent high pressure that is subtropical, as well as relatively frequent low pressure systems that form in the coral sea,. There are also cyclones and atmospheric rivers - these are typically in the warmer half of the year, with the subtropical highs occurring all year, and northerly low pressure systems year round to a lesser degree.

The assumption that some have regarding nz as being cool primarily due to systems that come from the south west, is really only true for the southern half of the south island, which tend not to be effected by any of the mentioned systems to any real degree.

That's a lie and you know it. Even places like Central NSW don't get 'subtropical highs year round' (lmao). You'd have to go north of 33 S for that.

I live at 36 S and I sure as hell don't get any real high pressure in the winter. Winter here is dominated by mid to high latitude low pressure systems, hence the cloudiness. Meanwhile the southern half of the South Island is borderline Subantarctic (46 S to 60 S).

I live at 36 S, further north than Auckland and I sure as hell don't get any real high pressure in winter. Winter here is dominated by mid to high latitude low pressure systems.
Migrating high pressure is a feature of nz winters. It can other come from the nw, or from the sw.
