Hi, my friends,
Do you use the construction below?
Canada has a lot of snow in winter.

I am not sure if it sounds a bit awkward
since I came across a sentence " Taipei
has more rain in winter" on a website
called BBC Weather.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi, SwissPete
    The whole context from the mentioned website:
    In winter, disturbed weather with cloud and rain affects the north and east coasts rather more than the south. This can be seen by comparing the table for Taipei, in the north, with that for Hengch'un in the extreme south. Taipei not only has more rain in winter but on many more days.

    Yes, it works. There's an ellipsis going on, though, in my opinion.

    Taipei has more rain in winter...(than in other seasons*).
