The trade off is cool summers though. The southerly flow usually just cakes the entire south coast in a cool fog, so you never really get somewhere with both warm winters and warm summers. St. John's is sort of the middle ground: warm enough winters, and warm enough summers (exceptions: 3 weeks of this July lmao).

Warmest summer locations are usually in the inland stretch of Grand Falls eastward to Clarenville. High 20s to low 30s aren't uncommon, but of course being far enough away from the ocean means winters can be pretty dang cool.
The weather stations on the Avalon Peninsula that show the mildest winter temps seem to be:

St. Mary's
