DX, my average temps aren't too far off from your desired temps. You'd have to tolerate warmer weather during the summer then you listed, but winter is pretty close to what you'd like including the wind. My specific area gets an average of 31 inches of snow per year, but you could head west a couple hours and have plenty of snow in the Hills. You could go skiing.

SAB, good topic. I was a bit confused when I was reading Matty's desired temps, but I get it now. Just a little slow this morning and I forgot we're opposite.

Botev has made my desired temps very simple. Just add 10 degrees of warmth to each temp you posted.

Jammie....I don't mind summertime heat too much if it only lasts 1 or 2 months . But here it lasts 5-6 months and sometimes 7 or 8....and it gets really irritating at times. If summertime heat stays in the months of June, July and August only.....than I don't mind that much .

Jan: 50/40, 6.0" rain*
Feb: 53/42, 4.5" rain
Mar: 59/49, 3.5" rain
Apr: 63/51, 2.5" rain
May: 71/57, 2.0" rain
Jun: 75/59, 1.5" rain
Jul: 80/66, 1.0" rain
Aug: 85/72, 0.8" rain
Sep: 76/60, 1.2" rain
Oct: 68/56, 2.4" rain
Nov: 62/51, 3.8" rain
Dec: 53/42, 5.0" rain

* When rain falls, it falls. I hate Seattle's method of raining where it can rain all day and only amount to 0.02". Just have it be a downpour for a couple hours, be over with, and more importantly CLEAR UP afterward.

Speaking of clearing up, I'd probably say about 150 sunny days, 150 partly cloudy, and 65 cloudy. Most of the sunny days coming in summer, most of the cloudy days in winter. I'd like temperate winters, hot (but not "WHY GOD WHY" hot) summers, and most importantly a decent amount of vitamin D.

That's a very strange, extremely strong amount seasonal change.
Those kinds of average swings between late-spring to summer and into early probably don't exist anywhere.

I'd hazard a guess that no place that can average 81 in July or 77 in August can still average 32 F in April or 50 F in May. In Ontario, no places average 77 F or higher in any month without averaging at least 50 F in Aprila and 65 F in May.

In fact with those kinds of winter averages you want, the warmest summer average you could possibly find would be 73-75 F. Remember up here we don't have "summer ruts" where we get one kind of temps all summer long. Any place that averages 75 F will get some days into the low 80's and most years will still hit 90 F or higher.

*Are you talking Fahrenheit or Celcius?
No place south of 60 degrees north will have an average daytime high below 0 F.

*** If you were talking Fahrenheit, I think the best you could do if you want to experience that kind of weather is to live in the Yukon, Alaska, Northwest Territories or Nunavut from September until May, then spend your summers near the Canadian/American border.

You're right CC....It probably dosen't. But this is your "dream" climatic averages after all.......

I'm talking fahrenheit......80 celsius would be insane!!

The closes place that averages that is probably Fairbanks, AK......and their highs in July are in the 60-95 range usually, since they are in the interior of AK, they get absolutely no moderation whatsoever.

I think there are places south of 60N latitude that average below 0F for a daytime high......Thompson, Manitoba has an average high of -4 in January, and it's located at 55N. In fact, in Thompson is where they do the "cold-weather testing" for cars

I think the closest (other than Fairbanks) to that is probably Winnipeg.....they have averages of 9/-11 in January and 80/57 in July.
