The Top Ten

1 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and it's current prime minister is ...read more.

In the United Kingdom it always gets sunny but when it's like October it always rain! Ugh I hate rain so that why you need an umbrella always it snows! (Not really) but sometimes snows in Scotland Northern Ireland or Wales but it London it's so freezing you can even play so I admit it winter is the best weather ever! - MissBritain

I have lived in England all my life, and I've got to say, the weather 90% of the time is terrible, the only time we get sun is in August, we get snow in MARCH instead of Winter (seriously? ) and it's pretty much just rain and cloud the rest of the time. I love England, but come on weather, what the hell, make your mind up!

I love in northern England and I find the hottest month is May but we still manage to have rain at least everyday there has been many days I can't leave the house because of all the flooding and snow in yeah we get some from November to March and it's always below freezing it's so cold

Terrible weather but the grass is always beautifully green. I spent a week in Ireland in a former life, it rained every day except the day I left and someone there said there was a year when it rained every day!

The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. ...read more.

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.

Russia is cold with no warm summer and its snow all year round.

No denying that Russia has the worst weather

3 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

I live in the southern part of the US. We have scorching hot summer with high humidity. It feels like a sauna for around half the year. Where I live we do get below freezing temperatures in the winter, but for the most part winter is just mild/cold and wet. Hurricanes threaten part of the southern US, earth quakes and fires in the west, blizzards in the north and midwest, Intense storms everywhere, 100+ temperatures in the southwest. United States sure do have the most diverse weather in the world I think. The only safe state is Hawaii. The area I live in had 70 degree weather one day, then two days later a wintery icy mix that was a mess. Its bad for sinuses too!

Bad weather every single week of the year. Flooding rain, violent thunderstorms every day in the summer, high wind, hundreds of massive killer tornadoes, hail, unimaginable drought, hurricanes, heavy blizzards, weeks of subfreezing, scorching hot summers. No country has this much mix every week of the year.

It matters where you live. I live in a pretty good place, not too cold in the winter, not too hot in the summer. Although, some places are pretty bad. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

It's too hot in the southwest. I hate the boring sunny and dry weather that I have to put up through almost everyday. It makes you all sweaty and you get a really bad tan! Not to mention how annoying it is to stay comfortable when you are dying from the heat.

Garbage weather 8-9 months out of the year. Cold, slippery, wet, snow.

Being in Canada its nice, I love the weather I don't know why hot summers around 25 and winter around -20 is fine for me. Cold up north (Northern Quebec, Territories) Cold in west a bit (Mountains, British columbia, Western Alberta) Its just cold everywhere in the winter but the summers sometimes get really humid

Life is very difficult for almost 8 months a year.

Freezer with best city vancouver having 8 months rain.

159 degrees, hottest temperature in the world, in this country. - ethanmeinster

7 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

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.

Living here with the wind is a nightmare.

Like UK but worse...

Bitch bitch please, you know the weather is so bad here that it keeps you up all night banging at your window.

9 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

May not be the hottest in the world per se but surely is up there among the most uncomfortable ones. The combined heat, dirt and humidity in the air contributes to the feeling of "constant decay".

The Philippines is getting hotter and hotter because we are suffering in the sun crisis. - kontrahinsunu

This country has like 3 seasons for me, Hot, Hotter, Hottest.

Wonderful weather- Philippines... anyone who says otherwise has clearly failed, in their life’s experience to date, to have actually visited any other remotely comparable garden spots/locations.

It is constantly cold and wet, no matter the season. It rains every other day.

Usually way to windy which means that when it rains the rain can also come from any possible direction

The weather in Sweden in the Summer is very good.

IT IS COLD!

The Contenders

11 Libya Libya Libya, officially the State of Libya, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

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.

12 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

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 all

Worse than the UK, I have no idea why the UK is in first place

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.

14 Eritrea Eritrea Eritrea officially the State of Eritrea, is a country in East Africa. With its capital at Asmara, it is bordered by Sudan in the west, Ethiopia in the south, and Djibouti in the southeast.
15 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

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.

Sun in winter and Rain in summer, Great...

Everyday cold rain.

Always sunny and beautiful snow in winter. summer times are ideal: -Hallvard

16 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

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 diss

Super HOT!

I wish I could see where all the comments about being too hot come from in this part of year.

Let me put it this way...London has a hotter temperature than us this week. - BlarchBlaces

18 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

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

HOT

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.

Enjoy the one week where you can go outside without getting soaking wet by the rain, we call it 'summer'. It's the one week when you're like 'wait, can I wear this? Or is it too cold for that? ', you're basically always confused because it can get rainy in the matter of a bloody minute. Enjoy your pale tan. The sun only gives you enough time to become a slightly darker shade of pale. bad ass weather.

It is like, ALWAYS raining. When it's winter it is't cold enough for snow but too cold for a lighter jacket, and in the summer the nice few days of sun are followed by a lightning and storm...

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.

21 Belgium Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.

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.

Here in Belgium we have one week of hot weather per year that's it. The rest of the year it's either freezing, gloomy or raining
TERRIBLE!
