Weather in the Cotswolds - Comparisons

The weather in the Cotswolds compared to Santa Fe NM (where we live), Seattle WA (where we lived for a couple of years), Vancouver BC Canada (where we used to live) and Rome Italy (where we have never lived). I took these yearly averages charts from and compared average monthly precipitation and average monthly high and low temperatures.

Comparing Stroud in the Cotswolds to Vancouver Canada, Vancouver gets almost twice as much rain and the temperatures are similar.
