Countries With the Worst Weather


The Top Ten

1 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. 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

Uk weather...its almost a guessing game.
on Thursday 30/11/2017 went to bed at 7am after night shift woke up at 12pm same day...2-3 inches of snow with thunder and lightning 12 hours later...
Sunday all gone and relatively mild...warning again for thursday 7/12/17 onwards for a cold snap.
If you plan to come to the UK then the weather will become a big part of your life.
I have seen it absolutely pour with rain then a couple of miles away be glorious sunshine and not a drop of rain.
when we get summer heat it becomes very oppressive very quickly, we don't get heat without humidity, but when we get cold by god it gets cold.
basically what in trying is when we get good weather it is beautiful but when we get bad weather then by god do you know about it.

2 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. 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.

No denying that Russia has the worst weather

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

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 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 never snows in my part of Texas :(

4 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, more.

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

Life is very difficult for almost 8 months a year.

Guaranteed extremely cold weather that reaches -40 degrees Celsius every winter. Cold weather starts in early October and ends mid-May.
Summers are unpredictable year after year. It's not uncommon to see cool rainy days last for 5 days in a row. Heat waves occur once every summer and are unbearably humid that you stay indoors with air conditioning. All in all, if it weren't for incentives like free healthcare and other social programs, no one would come live here. It's not as amazing as it's advertised to be; depression is at an all time high due to weather.

Worst weather in the world bar non.. #1..along with corrupt govt/immigration

5 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

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

6 Greenland Greenland Greenland is an autonomous country within the Danish Realm, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

Gross and cold

7 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.

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.

How is the Uk number 1. at least in the Uk it gets above 20c every Summer. In Iceland Summer's are 10-14c and still very rainy. Winters stay below 0c yet they never have major snow on the coasts like they do inland (or in Germany, Russia, Canada etc)

Bitch please we get tons of snow.

8 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

Typhoons and the most humid weather ever! - ethanmeinster

There are 2,Hell Day and Rainy Afternoon

The Contenders

11 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.

So lets see we have storm desmond and ophelia is coming. Yup there's a reason this place is on the list - Enderninja327

When you go 3 weeks without seeing a ray of light in the middle of june.. You know something's not right

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

12 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.

13 Finland Finland

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

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 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

When talking about weather talk that not comment about the other stuffs non of the countries are perfect in many things...

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

We are talking about weather!, This is not the Most hated Countries List!, You are on the wrong list. - hello

it is good

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

17 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.

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

Everyday cold rain.

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

18 Netherlands Netherlands

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...

The Netherlands has only two seasons. 11 months and three weeks of rainy cloudy windy autumn and one week of "Look child, that is what they call the sun" summerish. Hands down the worst climate in the world.

19 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.

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 winter - ahmedaser


20 Estonia Estonia

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
