Dividing this article into separate topics[edit]

Not a bad article, but this is way, way too broad. What does Arctic Alaska have climatically in common with Panama? This article should be divided into Canada, United States, and Mexico at the very least, and probably the United States should be divided further. Seems like this article was written by some ethnocentric European who thinks all of the New World is the same — just kidding, but seriously, this is like having an article about "Winter in Asia" or "Winter in Africa" or "Winter in South America" or "Winter in Europe". It's too broad.

I'm willing to do the work, if necessary. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 00:49, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

I disagree; we have no need for an article on winter in Panama and no need to cover Panama in this article. The only regions where winter is notable enough as a climate difference to merit an article are places with snow and ice - so Greenland, Canada, northern US but not México, Central America or the Caribbean.

I am the ethnocentric European who wrote much of this article. As said, the sub-tropics and tropics are obviously not relevant here. Not the Arctic either, as it has winter or winter-like conditions year round. The relevant parts are Canada (except the very north) and the United States (except the very south, and Arctic Alaska). /Yvwv (talk) 09:21, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
I thought you were the one who wrote the article, but by the way I absolutely appreciate you putting the work into creating articles like this. However, perhaps a name change to "Winter in Canada and the United States" would be more appropriate considering the region that is covered? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 16:13, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Map of climate regions[edit]

IMO this map (from Indigenous cultures of North America) does a good job of showing climate regions and could be useful in this article. —The preceding comment was added by SelfieCity (talkcontribs)
