Countries With the Worst Weatherethanmeinster
The Top Ten
Scotland has stunning scenery but is so often dreich, drizzly and extremely windy. My benchnark is this: Can you play a musical instrument outdoors without the cold affecting your playing? For most of the year even in summer it is too cold. The UK has good weather for working in, but mostly rubbish weather for any kind of fun except perhaps kiting and wind surfing, sailing and chasing golf umbrellas.
The weather here is mild but diabolical. However, to say the UK is not entirely accurate. Surely Scotland is a serious candidate for worst weather excluding extremes. Scotland's weather is only extreme in the sense that it's extremely awful. Beautiful country, generally lovely people but the climate with its incessant rain and unbearable lack of sunlight makes it absolutely unliveable for many.
What the rain?
Don't you mean America with the hurricanes, tornados and twisters. Yellowstone Super Volcano.
This Weather is discraeful and I want to speak to the presidentV 40 Comments
Whyis UK the first but not russia? UK weather is nice, soft rain all the time...in russia its just snow 8 months a year and a cold short summer.
Depends on what part of Russia we´re voting for here.
If overall then it´s almost horrible.
Russia's winter can kill anyone unless you wear tons of clothes. In the summer it also may kill anyone cause it's too dry, because most of Russia is a desert. More than half of the country is frozen all the year long.
You clearly don't have any basic knowledge of climate and geography in Russia - Jobejer
I know the stereotype is that it's always cold in Russia. But as a California resident that grew up by the Black sea north Coast (City: Krasnodar) I can tell you for sure that summer in my hometown is way warmer and nastier due to high humidity. It's basically like Florida but worse during the summer there.V 4 Comments
I've been all over America, and I can without a doubt say it has some pretty bad weather. On one side there is scorching summer heat with droughts that can last up to eleven months (at least in Arizona), wildfires are everywhere in the summer, so much so that you can see them in the distance usually. When it finally rains, it comes out of nowhere, fast, thin, and going sideways like little bullets that leave as quick as they came.
In the southeast it's hot and deathly humid, I remember the news saying to keep inside during the day since the air was so suffocating. Tornados are in the south galor, those nasty things tear apart lives, homes, and anything that crosses it's path, so does hurricanes.
Then there's the north, summers are pretty nice for most of the part, but winter is just a mess. As soon as Labour Day hits, everyone in the area knows that's about the endpoint, the tempature's just going to keep dropping from there. By January the tempature reaches its lowest, well ...more
I think the US has the worst weather all around whether it's Hot/Humid, Hot/Dry, Cold/Dry, Frigid, Cold/Wet, or Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Snowstorms/Blizzards, Thunderstorms, Droughts, Heavy Rain, Heavy Sunlight, Brutally Windy or in the Northeast which has Nor'easters. I don't hate all of this weather but I think the US would have to win this because we have every type of weather. - Soulstealer
Pick your poison. There's the freezing cold blizzards of Alaska, the blazing hot deserts of Arizona, the non-stop tornadoes of Oklahoma, the 24-hour rain of Washington State, the constant earthquaks of California, and the annual category 5 hurricanes of Florida.
I seen usa have bad weather like tornadoes and stuff - trains45V 28 Comments
Shouldn't Canada be above America? It's colder, the reason I think it's not above is because people hate America and want it to be number one
Inhabitable climate. Extreme cold for 10 months of the year. Pleasant weather for remaining 2 months. So can only stay indoors for 10 months.
Freezer with best city vancouver having 8 months rain.
We have bad weather like snow, and cold weather in winter we had lots of -30°C in feb 2019, and stuff, and sometimes in summer we can get bad thunderstorms and stuff - trains45V 16 Comments
Get this to number one.
Gross and cold
159 degrees, hottest temperature in the world, in this country. - ethanmeinster
Iceland should be #1. Worst weather on the planet apart from the Arctic Pole & Antartica.
If you're looking for cold summers, a combination of rain and wind that slaps your face in a way you've never experienced before; rendering umbrellas completely useless (seriously most people don't even own one), dark winters, one of the richest vocabularies of words for snow and wind and dry air - Iceland is the country for you. Not to mention the expensive gas, pricy beer and overwhelmingly difficult grammar.
Like UK but worse...
Living here with the wind is a nightmare.V 4 Comments
End of the day its meat...nothing to do with weather...
Living here is brutal because of the weather. I take 2 showers a day because of the high humidity. Your skin will feel sticky and clammy. Philippines has some the highest electricity cost of Asia so it's a luxury. Car shares don't want to run their AC and many business do don't run AC to save money. Its very hot in most homes since none of them have central air. Its not uncommon to go to a mall or movie theater with no AC. Your skin will burn quickly without sun block and an umbrella. By far the worst place for weather and comfort. It should be number 1.
If you live here as a tourist with hotels or tourists' places, it feels good but if you live here as a native, it feels very uncomfortable because of 1)typhoons 2) hot, dirt and humid that you always feels sticky if you're not in closed air-con environment and 3) unpredictable weather; example: sometimes while the sun is hot you will feel water dropping from the clouds.
The rainy season sucks.
If it's not hot in the Philippines, it's probably being hit by a typhoon - bobbyqba2011V 7 Comments
Usually way to windy which means that when it rains the rain can also come from any possible direction
It is constantly cold and wet, no matter the season. It rains every other day.
The weather in Sweden in the Summer is very good.
In the winter it could fall down to -58 degreesV 1 Comment
Some of the hottest temps ever recorded
I don’t think Libya should be in this list.. it has moderate climate.! Little cold in winters. And little warm in summers..! There is no autumn or spring..
Yes I know libya hold the record for highest temperature recorded but that's not everyday.! No humidity at all..!
The difference in highest and lowest temperature of the day is very less in winters.
Legend says that someday the temperature will rise above -273.15 degrees... I keep a bathing suit and sunscreen in my house just in case.
In the winter it can fall down to -65 degrees
Its never sunny in Ireland.
Been all over the world and this is the worst I've ever seen. Rain, wind and cold.
When you go 3 weeks without seeing a ray of light in the middle of june.. You know something's not right
Are you drunk or no? Because there has not been a June where it has been raining/cloudy for over 3 weeks. At least in the last 12/15 years. Exaggeration - Oscarboi
Rain rain rain and no summer at allV 7 Comments
How is this not higher on the list? The weather here is terrible! Totally dark in winter, with masses and masses of snow October to May. Then the rain sets in...no summer to speak of, with the additional torture of midnight sun. It is currently June and it has been snowing every day for the past four days. No respite in sight, and temperatures around the 5 degree mark - no, that's not a typo. Close to freezing in June...I'm moving back to the UK. The weather there is a treat compared to this.
I’ve only lived in Stavanger so can't comment on the rest of Norway- but Stavanger has a truly horrible climate. It is ALWAYS windy. It is cloudy and very cold all year round. winter is cold and wet but not cold enough for snow...just deeply unpleasant icy,windy drizzle. I would comment on summer but there is no summer in stavanger. Too unpleasant to do anything outdoors. Yukk.
Sun in winter and Rain in summer, Great...
Everyday cold rain.V 1 Comment
Where I come from, it get to 30 degrees one day then down to 13 degrees the next day. In the summer, it gets so extreme that it gets up to 40 degrees every year and the average is around 30 degrees. Winter is worse, it always gets to sub zero and it doesn't even snow! Plus, it then gets to 26 degrees later in the day. I will give you the hint, IT'S THE PLACE WHERE FOUR SEASONS IN ONE DAY WAS SET IN! It's not to hot weather, the cold, the windy, or the rainy that's terrible, the fact that the weather changes are sometimes so extreme that you get sick. If you want to live in Australia just for the weather, I suggest you move to Brisbane or some other place subtropical/mediterranean. The northern parts get too hot in the early/late summer and then winter, or should I say; mid summer, is a bit too hot for august. Like, Darwin for an example and the southern parts are much too temperate, like, say; Melbourne. Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth might be the only places in Australia with decent ...more - grumpycat
Please also remember that my rant has many typos. - grumpycat
It gets so hot in some regions that pretty much every living thing must take cover in the shade by midday or else they die of heat or dehydration. In mountain regions people die all the time from hypothermia.
Australia is good, Mate, so don't dissV 4 Comments
When talking about weather talk that not comment about the other stuffs non of the countries are perfect in many things...
It can go up to 40 degrees in the summer and its wet and dirty in the rains! winter is not cold at all, its cold in the morning and hot throughout the day
The Historic temples are a main attraction, Kerala a small part of India is well known with the house boats and culinary, very Hospitable and hence you can find most of the people working in abroad and well respected by the community. The combination of three seas of different soil colour and the sunrise and sun set in Kanyakumari (Cape COMORIN) is a great place to visit. Most of the eminent Doctors and nurses from Kerala holds a great rank in other countries in the world and they excel a great service to the community
India is massive and there are good places even more clean and developed than certain parts of usa and the crime rates are much less safe to live aswel...V 6 Comments
I vote, but to disapprove. Summers aren't bad at all, and 2018 was dry and hot from May until October, with a piping-hot summer. Granted, winters are bad but absolutely not temperature-wise. Winters are rarely colder than 10 degrees and spring season almost starts halfway February. Also rainfall isn't that bad if you compare it to a plethora of other countries. The weather is much worse in the Alps or Scandinavia. Keep it real!
Humidity is perennially over 70%, average summer temperatures barely reach 25ºC, in the winter it's freezing cold but it often doesn't snow: welcome to the country with the most depressing weather in the world.
Get ready for winds that will knock you over, rain that will have you soaking within 5 minutes of walking in the open, and the worst colds known to man (you will be spending at least €20 a month on tissues to blow your nose in any given month of the year).
To add to that, there is NO way to predict the weather, and by that, I mean that the forecast can say 0% chance of rain with clear skies, and in the space of half an hour the skies could be pretty much black, thundering and pouring down with rain. We even get rain when it's sunny sunny sometimes, explain that.
Do not come to this country if you are from a place with reasonable weather, you will be disappointed, there is nothing to do about it, Dutch weather will be worse than your expectations infallibly.
It's always windy.
If it's not raining it's windy as hell. Most unpredictable bipolar weather ever. You get heavy hale followed by clear blue skies with sun, followed by dark clouds with drizzle followed by storms, all in a course of 1 hour.V 5 Comments
Highs of 45 degrees Celsius in summer. Unbearable scorching heat and very humid, air is dry and the constant sway of dust in the air makes it even more difficult to breath. Winters are cold at nights especially indoors as buildings are poorly structured with no insulation in the walls.
Egypt's Climate has changed during last decades, when summer became too hot to be out in the street at any hour during the day, but still we have sun every other day & during the whole year
Too hot in summer with high humidity and houses not prepared for that in winter rain even mildest cause a lot of troubles due to mediocre infrastructure
Tooo hot in the summer and the streets are very dirty in winterV 1 Comment
No foreigner has survived here more than 2 years. If you survive winter, then comes summer, what may be even harder to survive.
Its'a nice somtimes in estonie maybe bat der is very much prostitute -Alexsej
In the middle of july 2015 I was in Beerse (Flanders) and had to turn on the HEATING one day. Yes, the HEATING. Rainy as hell, if it is not raining it is snowing. Sunny days (which are scarce between late november and april) look like a late afternoon.
Not even the belgians stand their own weather.
I have had to go to Belgium for work a few times. The country is mostly nice however the weather I hate. I have been in summer and sometimes it does get warm but it still rains lots. When I went in March, it rained constantly.
I've been to Belgium, in April it's non stop rain, and I'm the one to talk because I live in England. When I was there it literally didn't stop raining at all in two weeks I mean at least in the UK we get a nice break from it once in a while
Awful weather, always rainy. I left to live in Canada where it's way better.V 3 Comments
Kazakhstan! Kazakhstan! you very nice place!

Yep Iraq pretty much has the worst weather in the world summers last from the end of April to the end on November and throughout that time temps are usually over 45c it can reach as high as 54c, but winters are lovely though but still doesn't rain that much.
Hellish summers of 45 degrees every day must rank as the worst weather of any place in the world. Although I have never been there, the sun must be brutal given that many places have NEVER recorded rain during the period from June to September. Iraq’s winters might be as lovely as the summers are hellish, though.
Very dry and hot climate, with temperatures exceeding 50 degrees celcius in the summer period.
Always raining bombs sharia laws ffs
Humid rain sunny hot unpredictable heat
Too hot and there's no waterpark.
It's always strikingly burning and you might get sun cooked! Did I mention that it's always dusty?
It's too hot, it never rains, and too many sand storms.
I'M KOREAN, BUT HOLY CRAP THIS WEATHER IS CATASTROPHE!
FIRST THE RAIN CHANGES FORVER AND WEATHER ALWAYS CHANGES OVER HOURS.
Weather here is so disapointed. It is a lovely day, with shiny sun and blue sky in Vietnam, don't even belive that. Because, may be, few minutes later, it rain so hard and terrible, that my umbrella can't stand the water from that sky.
It's always so hot!
During Monsoon, there are thunderstorms daily. If you are coming over here,please come during the dry season.
So hot and there is this terrible Islamic Republic.
Humidity is no joke in the summer. When you head out the door you are basically walking into an open sauna.
-35 in the winter and 105 in the summer. - Soulstealer
Severely underrated. The entirety of Mongolia is freezing, and we would all hear about it if the Mongols weren't too tough to complain. - bobbyqba2011
Same latitude of Hawaii, January to May no sunshine only low cloud, rain. Later plum rain, typhoons. Always humid. Only autumn ok
It's always cloudy and humid
