Top 10 Countries with the Worst Weather
Our weather isn't actually that bad but it's so varied. If you're going away you never know what to pack! Always take a raincoat even in the midst of a heatwave, and pack summer clothes even in mid winter especially if you're going to a differrnt part of the country! I recall many a time when I've been at home sat in the garden sweltering in Somerset yet speaking to friends/family in Devon, Midlands, London and in the north where they've got torrential rain with flooding, snow or half force winds. Kind of makes our weather interesting...and frustrating!
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!
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.
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.
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'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.
Russia is cold with no warm summer and its snow all year round.
When we arrived in Moscow in June, it was very hot and sunny.
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.
Southern Ontario probably has the best weather in all of Canada. It is really awful for 3 months (Dec/Jan/Feb). It is unpleasant for 3 months (Oct/Nov/Mar). It is nice (for Canadians) in the spring and autumn (Apr/Sep). May is borderline. We can go swimming by the end of June, that is when the city pools open. If you visit in July and August its perfect. My dad who lives in Central America will not come to visit any month. My mom (because shes a mom) will come in July or August, last year she was cold here for 4 out of 6 weeks, with highs of 16 to 18 degrees Celsius during that time.
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
Inhabitable climate. Extreme cold for 10 months of the year. Pleasant weather for remaining 2 months. So can only stay indoors for 10 months.
Uk definitely doesn't deserve to be first. in America, it may be a sunny day but then all of a sudden there is an f 5 category tornado destroying our neighborhood. American weather is horrible, summers are hot and humid while winters are cold and dry.
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!
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.
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.
Nah, it's okay. The summers aren't cold for me at all, rain doesn't hit much, neither does wind, and besides, beautiful nature and the sun doesn't seem to go down.
I don't understand why Iceland is not on the top of this list. Summer never comes and winter doesn't have any sun.
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)
Get this to number one.
Gross and cold
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.
It is constantly cold and wet, no matter the season. It rains every other day.
Cold weather is always better than hot weather.
The weather in Sweden in the Summer is very good.
Should be on the topp of the list if you live in Bergen. Living here is hard being on the wrong side of the mountains. 72% of the time it rains, more than 3 m a year. Hardly any difference between winter and summer.
All this water is used for Hydro power not benefitting the inhabitants but is exported to UK and Germany. Buy me a beer (11 pounds) before I move country.
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.
Cold, windy and miserable most of the year. The winters are long, dark and snowing. Summer is brief, and when the sun never sets.
Soooo hot we have had 50° days. Then the next day can be pouring rain 🌧. Right now Brisbane is flooding and a few months ago we were in a drought. Last year we had so many bush fires that killed nearly 30% of wildlife. I can't believe Australia isn't higher. But I would never move it's the best place ever. If you live near coast or in a good area the weather is phenomenal. Also there aren't as many deadly animals as you think I've never seen a snake or kangaroo or a huntsmen spider. Overall a good country if you pick the right place
If you go to Darwin in summer, of course it's going to be extremely hot so if you want to visit there, do so in winter. People who live there love the weather and everyone has air conditioning. Melbourne has the worst weather - 4 seasons in one day - but it still called the most livable city in the world which is weird but it does have a great arts scene. The weather in the rest of the country is great, far better than nearly all the other countries in the world.
You got to admit, Australia is a very good country, but it has it's ups and downs with the weather. It is definitely not the coldest, but some areas during winter can reach quite low temperatures but it still can't compete with the UK, US and Russia with the coldest weather. I think the problem is the heat. Sure, every place is hot in summer but you should come up to Darwin, NT and see what that is like. I live in Melbourne, VIC, which isn't the sunniest of places, but it is such a good city and it has been awarded the most livable city ever. I have been to Darwin once in my whole entire life and that is probably because the weather is hot over there. I got off the plane at 2 in the morning and it was 18 degrees! It was so hot, and don't get me started on the middle of the day. Most of the time we just stayed inside because it felt like some ginormous fireplace outside. The hottest Darwin has ever been was 52 degrees and the coldest it has been is 10 degrees. 10 degrees is not cold ...more
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
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.
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.
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".
No foreigner has survived here more than 2 years. If you survive winter, then comes summer, what may be even harder to survive.
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
When talking about weather talk that not comment about the other stuffs non of the countries are perfect in many things...
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...
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
Ireland's year-round cold, rain and dark are well known, but what they don't tell you about is the near-constant wind. Although we don't get majorly violent storms, there's a breeze or gust nearly always constantly blowing. It gets down your neck and up your cuffs and keeps the chill up against you day and night.
When I visited Ireland, it rained every day & the locals said it had rained every day for a year.
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
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.
Do you like windy rainy Autumn type weather for about 9 months a year?
Do you like a lot and lots of wind almost every day?
Cloudy rainy days something you love?
Did I mention the wind already, yes it always is windy, always!
Its either the most predictable autumn like weather for weeks.
Or you have days every weather type of all seasons combines happens during 1 day.
starting of hot and sunny in the morning, cold and rainy in noon, snow and windy in the evening and maybe as bonus some thunder a night.
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.
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 rains almost every day, the heat will literally cook you alive.
Stormy severe weather and to much rainfall to flooding tornados can touch down cyclones very stormy
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.
Cold a and rainy summer, rainy autumn, warm and rainy winter, rainy spring. Yes, here is rain almost every day.
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.
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'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
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
