Top 10 U.S. States with the Worst Weather
As I agree that OH weather sucks I have to point out that not enough emphasis was placed on the damned HUMIDITY! This wretched state is humid ALL the time! Even in the winter which makes for a wetter feeling winter and not a nice dry cold that's easier to tolerate. I must say we have no winter anymore also (and never a fall). We have maybe 2 weeks (total) of what you'd call real cold temperatures and the rest is usually in the 40s or 50s. It never snows anymore and if it does it's more icy which only creates hell for road conditions. But oh the humidity! It literally SMACKS you in the face when you walk outside! It's like hitting a brick wall of sticky hot wet miserableness! You can't breathe EVER and though the temp might say it's 89 degrees the "real feel" is always at a 100 and the humidity at 90%! It's absolutely unbearable to be outside. So WHY do people STILL flock to live here!? As soon as my responsibilities are done here, I'M OUT! And I can't wait! Ohio sucks!
Ohio sits at the junction of the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Great Lakes regions. It gets the worst weather from each (tornadoes, heat waves and blizzards, respectively). Warm and cold fronts are constantly cycling across the state, bringing snow in mid-May, 70-degree temps in February, and thunderstorms about every other day in the summer. The only consistent thing about Ohio's weather are the clouds. The Farmer's Almanac lists us as the 8th cloudiest state, which sounds about right.
Yes. Ohio and New Jersey are two candidates for "US States With The Worst Weather". And Ohio is even worse than New Jersey! The weather in Sandusky during the summer is alright, but the rest of the state... Wow, the weather just plain sucked. Tornadoes. Hurricanes. Thunderstorms. Snowstorms. I just hate the state's weather so much. Oh, and Dayton is such an ugly and depressing city, for sure. The fact that people still live daily lives there just baffles me.
State color should be grey as that is the color of the sky 99% of the time. Absolutely drastic weather changes day to day, severe storms regularly, and we just had a confirmed by the NWS 17 tornadoes touch down on Monday. Winter seems to last from October until March, then April-June constant rain. July-September is scorching hot, often raining still. We tend to have maybe a week of fall if at all.
Oklahoma has by far the wackiest weather I've ever seen. Temperatures regularly go from 40 degrees in the morning to 75 in the afternoon. And don't even get me started on the tornadoes. Like, one every couple of weeks! Not to mention the thunderstorms that we have almost every week! Plus, the winters are not predictable at the LEAST. Snow predicted? Better wear your shorts.
It goes from hot to cold to some big thunderstorm. You can NEVER trust the weatherman here. I remember a few years back, we were suppose to have a massive snowstorm. Schools and some businesses were out for a week. When the week the snowstorm was suppose to hit, we woke up and looked out our windows. Boom. Summer weather.
No actual words can describe how awful the weather (among a lot of other things) is in Oklahoma. Pretty sure every natural disaster and weather-related event has and does happen in the state with the exception of a Tsunami. I'm sure that will come through soon enough though.
Literal tornadoes all the time. The temperature can range from below freezing in the morning to piping hot in the afternoon. We do not have winter wardrobes or summer wardrobes. We just have to check the temperature for the day.
This state is miserable. It's hotter and more humid than Florida in the summer and although the snow is minimal in the winter, the icy cold wind never stops in the winter. I lived in Traverse City, Michigan for eight years and can honestly tell you that the winters there are much more pleasant. In addition there in NOTHING to do in Iowa. There are very few natural lakes in the entire state, and the people are not Iowa nice; they are the same miserable losers you will find anywhere else in this decaying country.
Freezing or Hot as hell. Wind that will shake your house and raining all the time or a drought! 2 to 4 weeks a year where it's nice. Nice for me is saying wow it's nice out today. Not wow at least it's better than yesterday! (that's Iowa)
Iowa is the Bi-Polar state for weather. It sucks!
Iowa is a place where you have a nice day and it's followed by two weeks of feeling like you've been kicked in the family jewels. I feel like each year it gets worse. Dewpoint in the summer is in the tropical range 76 % and the wind blows ALL the time.
We may get 5 good days a year on average, the rest are to hot, to cold, to wet and to cloudy with sever storms in all 4 seasons. But it's a great place for raising corn and bugs.
Brutally hot and densely humid summers in the 100 (plus) degree range for weeks to months. Heavy rainfall and/or chances of hail some years. Possible winter freezes like the big freeze in 2021. Heavy winds spring 2022. Heat wave summer 2022. Record breaking rain summer 2022. Whatever the weather is in the morning can drastically change around noon being extreme and unpredictable more times than desired. Prone to hurricanes, tornados, flooding, extreme heat, hail, heavy winds, and freezes. If everything is bigger in Texas, then being "bigger" is not a good thing. Big and nasty weather is nothing to brag about.
Months of heat in the summer where it's near or above 100 degrees, and it doesn't cool off at night. Wind most of the year that makes it uncomfortable to take walks. Surprisingly cold and windy in the winter, but no snow, just grey. Often there's no real spring or fall. Tornadoes, mosquitoes, and fire ants don't help either. I can't stand still in my yard without getting swarmed by fire-ants. I've lived on both coasts at various latitudes, and I've lived in the southwest. Texas has the worst weather by far. There's ALWAYS a reason that you can't go outside.
How is Texas not higher on the list! People say that Texas has nice weather for it's sunny skies and warm weather but it is tooo hot. In 2011 most of the days in summer went up into the 100s! By the time May starts, where I live it's already in the 90's and then changes in to the 90's and 100's in in late July and August and then back into the 90's in September. I also hate sunny skies.
It's cold right now, and it's going to be 70 at 12 AM, then almost 90 in the afternoon. Then tomorrow, a cold front will come in with a thunderstorm that makes an extremely hot day go dark with 5 inches of rain showering down, plus some hail. Then don't forget hurricane season, you can't go outside for a whole month.
I hate the cold. I live in Tennessee, and even the short, mild winters are too much for me. I can't imagine how bad Alaska would be, and to add to that how gloomy it would be.
There is a reason this state has the highest concentration of pilots.
-30s in the winter no thanks. Dark skies and seasonal depression. I bet a lot of people drink there
Coldest state in the U.S. with extreme rainfall in some parts and extreme cold in others
The weather in the midwest is super bipolar it makes no sense, you get all kinds of crap. Fall will always be the best season though
Indiana has about 5 nice (by California standards) days per year. The other 360 days consist of freezing cold winds, snow, rain, sleet, hail, tornados, persistant heavy grey clouds, unbearable humidity in Summer, mosquitos, sweat bees, wasps, relentless pestering flies, and armies of ants. No partially nice day goes without rain ruining it. If it is sunny in Indiana it means rain is close behind, otherwise it's just too cold to be outside in a t-shirt.
We have fake spring and fall. The seasons doesn't start normal it takes a while to get spring weather and when summer comes around it is so hot and sometimes we don't get rain for a while.
It's mid-May and I wore my winter coat today. I remember this time last year getting a scalding sun burn at a baseball game. Gray skies for 6-7 straight months from October through May.
I think we can all unanimously agree that Illinois has the worst weather in not just the United States but also in the entire world. For example on Monday it is cloudy, on Tuesday it is snowy, on Wednesday it is literally burning hot outside, and on Thursday, it is windy. Some areas like Chicago literally snowed over 25 inches in 2011. Global warming is not helping this problem because there are many floods and heat waves at any given time. So I think we can all agree that Illinois has worse weather than any other U.S. state and probably one of the worat places in the world die to this madness. I personally think that non-native Ohio people who voted Ohio as having the worst weather are just trolls. Not to mention that there are a ton of memes that agrees with this statement. Also, one week, Illinois is dryer than the sahara desert and the next week Illinois gets more humid than Brazil.
Humid all year round; Spring is for about a month but it is always either rainy or very cloudy. Fall is the best season here but lasts for a month. Summers are mostly unbearably hot and humid with no wind. Windy with ice, sleet, snow and rain in the winter (which makes it difficult to travel safely without nearly breaking or twisting something) but it is the only time, I think, Chicago is the sunniest, next to Summer, which lasts for 2 months.
Illinois has to be one of the worst states for weather. Most inconsistent weather you will find. It can be 70 one day and drop down into the 20's that night. Then get back up to mid 60's the next day. We have had 70-80 degree swings on a day to day basis. Prime example is on Halloween we had a winter storm. Upper 20's with sleet and snow and 25 mph winds. Then Christmas it was 60 degrees and 5 mph winds.
Two days ago it snowed a few inches and the day after it was 77 degrees and sunny. It gets extremely cold in the winters and unbearably hot and humid in the summers. Spring and fall is all rain and thunderstorms, some severe. My area gets an average of about 5 tornado warnings a year. 0/10, would move again.
If you're an "indoor person" you'll love Western Pennsylvania.
There's no such thing as a truly nice day here. There's always something annoying going on. For example, if the temperature is reasonable, it will be overcast and raining on and off all day. If the humidity isn't set to "sauna", it's incredibly windy. If it isn't windy, the black flies and mosquitoes will eat you alive while you sweat to death in the stagnant, humid fart-smelling air. On the off chance it's actually sunny, it will also be either freezing cold or blazing hot. Winters, on the other hand, are just miserable, dark and cold with almost no snow on a regular basis. It's not uncommon at any point in the year to go a week or more without seeing the sun at all.
Whoever came up with the name "Its always sunny in Philadelphia", needs to get their brain checked. In the winter, you will barely get any day's with sun. I swear every other week there is a nor'easter that brings either an inch, or a foot of snow. Not to mention the unbearable dry cold that'l make your lips fall off! In my opinion it's a bit better in the summer, but summer does have its problems. Humidity is the absolute worst; the real temperature could be 86, but it'l peel like 100! Thunderstorms seem to be every other day (especially this year, 2019). It seems that once every 5 years, we get some sort of tropical storm or hurricane.
Hellishly humid summers that start in mid may and can last until early October. Then, 3 or so months of "nice" weather until January. Then January - April is just cold enough to keep you uncomfortable and shut up inside, pining for the springtime which barely will last a few weeks. The Philadelphia area has roughly 3 months of tolerable weather. It's truly the worst. I've lived in both Florida and New England.
I agree with all the opinions on this site. South Central PA is cloudy MOST days. In 2018 we had 2 feet of snow on the first day of spring. It is almost always windy thru the very long winters. Spring is super short, with decent weatherfrom mid May to mid June. I've worn sweatshirts in June. Fall is the best season, but if you like SUNNY weather that's not windy, this place is hell. Moving to the Southwest soon!
Having lived in eastern Missouri all of my life I can agree 100% to this. The climate here is challenging, dismal, and not fit for humans. The humidity is atrocious most of the year even when it hasn't rained for two weeks and then there is the heat. Why does it get so hot in the summer? Actually much of the Midwest is like this. My good friend from Puerto Rico thought he left hurricanes when he moved to St. Louis over 25 years ago. Nope. They still reach up this far north if they hit the Gulf hard enough. Most if not all humans should leave the state and leave it to wildlife which doesn't seem to have a problem with it. We never seem to have a normal spring which can differ by as much as 4-6 weeks year to year. I guess this is the downside to living in the middle of a huge continent.
Hot, windy, humid summers and cold, windy, snowy winters.
There are two nice weeks in the spring and two nice weeks in the fall. The summers are 90 percent humidity with temps about high 80's to 90's. Its hard to do outdoor activities unless you have a pool access.
The winters in MO are any where between single digits and maybe 30's. Some times the roads are a challenge to travel on.
TLDR: about 1 in 10 days is reasonably nice. (I'm defining that as highs from 65-85 with little to no rain... (and the 80-85 days lacking severe humidity)) The other 90% of the time is miserable.
Autumn is generally fairly nice. It is followed by winters which are surprisingly cold for such a hot region (highs in the 20s and teens for weeks at a time, ice storms that knock out power to tens of thousands, etc.)
Spring is generally mid April, and lasts 1-2 weeks of nonstop severe thunderstorms, and is followed by summer.
Summer is long, hot ( most days are over 90f, generally 95-100), and very very humid. Thunderstorms are common in summer and only serve to make it more humid and give people more migraines.
Fun weather facts: Missouri gets tornadoes, earthquakes, major flooding, droughts, golfball sized hail, severe thunderstorms (1-2 a month on average), and hurricanes ( they sometimes travel up the Mississippi river to hit us. They're usually more of a mild ...more
As a 19-year old raised in St. Louis, I can confirm that the area (at least in St. Louis) is difficult to adjust to, especially for people who normally live in consistent and/or fair climates. Missouri's (specifically St. Louis's) difficult weather doesn't come from a consistently extreme aspect, but rather from the weather being prone to sudden extreme changes or extreme events and consistently unpleasant. This means you have to prepare and adapt to new, unpleasant aspects each season, all year long. The weather here can stump professional, local meteorologists. I can't count the number of times their predictions, no matter how sound, were off by 10-30 degrees, or when an unexpected extreme event (such as a severe thunderstorm with hail and power outages) occurred with only a couple of hours of warning or no warning at all.
I'll detail the possible weather you can expect from each season here:
Winter: either cold and dry or cold and humid. Range from single digits to ...more
I used to go to college in Durango. September definitely is the most beautiful month. I do not think the summer heat is that bad there and it is a dry heat but then again I was born in the Phoenix area. It is rarely over 100 in most parts of Colorado. The snow and the cold are pretty bad and also parts of Colorado can get quite windy. I think the temperature range is the worst part. The high can be 75 and the low can be 40. The winters are beautiful but the price of that beauty is shoveling snow, slippery roads, defrosting cars, etc.
Flat out cold, snowy, and a biting wind from Late October through the middle of May, can be quite warm with mid-high 90s in the Summer, basically there are two actually pleasant months: September, and October.
I have seen it Sunny, Rainy, and Snowy all in one day. Y'all shouldn't come here, it sucks!
I love the cold and the snow and the isolation is a bonus.
It can't be too bad since it's almost Heaven.
I have lived in wv my whole life and honestly the weather isn't horrible. It can get cold in the winter and very icy, but it hasn't snowed a lot in about 4 years. It's very rainy in may-August, and it's about 75-95 in the summer
One day it's freezing and the next I'm dying of a heat stroke. Not to mention the wind, if you have anything in your backyard you better nail it to the ground!
Just a few months ago (Oct 2018) it snowed like 3 inches in the first week of October and the temp was in the teens or 20s. It's now January and tomorrow is supposed to be 58 degrees for high
Every day I have to check the weather to find out whether to wear a winter coat or short sleeves. No matter the season.
Back in 2009 it snowed 3 feet in late March. The next day it was in the 70s. A couple days later the snow was completely melted.
I'm stuck here near the Gulf of Mexico. Summer is absolutely miserable with no temp change except when it rains. When it rains, the temperature drops into the mid 80's, and after the intense lightning storm every afternoon, the humidity spike back up even higher. The humidity is so constant, you feel unproductive. You can sit outside, doing nothing and within a minute or two you are sweating like a pig. No wonder AC was invented here. There are almost no seasons with central Florida going into the 60's during winter. Florida is nothing but heat and humidity.
This should be number one humidity is awful especially during the summer. Temperatures virtually feel like the 100s. Almost always the warmest spot in the country during the Winter with 80 degree temperatures. At least Arizoma has dry heat and it gets colder in the winter. Without AC one can not survive in a Florida. And on top of that Hurricane Season is a pain in the ass. At least I am moving in a few years.
I totally disagree. I love living in Florida. I love the warm weather. I hate being cold and would never want to live where it snows. We do get a lot of afternoon showers in the summer, but it's a gorgeous state to live in. I am always outdoors. There are many parks, the beaches, theme parks, etc. I just love it here!
I moved from Florida up north to escape the heat. There are no seasons - unless you count hurricane season - then expect to get with tornadoes and downpours almost daily. The humidity makes you feel like you are breathing in a wet towel.
Moved here to Little Rock from Houston. Quite a bit cooler overall, but temp is not bad. Tornado warnings and watches are beyond my counting capabilities. I have lived in Florida, Texas my whole lives and never considered a tornado shelter, but now have 2 one for house and one for work. I am sure there are worse tornado states ( Oklahoma, Kansas) but if coming to this area beware a tornado alert is as common as the beauty of the Natural State.
If you like no break at night because the dew point doesn't let up all the southern states are the worst I lived in Cali and Washington State and those places are amazing compared to ark. This whole lisr is bogus
This list is bogus... I've lived in Arkansas my entire life.
Worst weather in the entire south.
This is my state and I have to agree that this state has some extreme weather here and there. Winters are absolutely cold, you could easily die of hypothermia. Frequent arctic blasts from Canada come down to the state and cause snowstorms. One time, I was playing on my 3DS, I was trading Pokemon online, until the power went out and had to find a source. The roads can get really icy, as well. Summers here are absolute hell. You can easily drown in your own sweat, even if you head to the Jersey Shore for a dip in the ocean, and one time, I was so hot, I had to guzzle down 5 pints of water. I'm not kidding. Spring is decent, and autumn is the best season because of the fall colors. Love the state for the most part, hate the weather.
In winter it doesn't snow too too often, but one time we had 17 snowstorms. No matter what during winter it will be a good thing to see 30 degrees Fahrenheit. In winter it is always windy, so it makes it feel like 10 degrees. In summers it can get up to 90 degrees and with moderate humidity, so it doesn't feel too great. There is always humidity in summer and a lot of wind in winter. When it rains it rains forever. Sometimes it rains with the sun out. And sometimes down the shore we can get tornado warnings, or at least that has happened two years in a row.
Winters are long, dark, icy, and freezing. Random blasts of arctic air are frequent. Summers are disgustingly humid and hot - walk one block and you'll be drenched in sweat. There is only about 1 week of Fall and Spring per year on average. It rains every Monday. Weather is very inconsistent - it might be 40 degrees and chilly one day and 70 degrees and sunny the next. When there's no sun, the sky and clouds are always gray and depressing - avoid this state at all costs!
During January, my dad worked in a blizzard that hit Ridgefield. Yep, my dad survived crappy New Jersey weather.
Why is this state so far down? let me welcome you to Wisconsin. January is when the real winter usually begins. Rain is not uncommon followed by a 30 degree drop to freeze everything, followed by snow. A false spring usually arrives in April, followed by more snow or cold grayness. May and June are likely to have a few nice days. you will lose pints of blood to mosquitoes the rest of summer. The humidity reaches southern levels, during cold and hot days. September and October have a 'summer return' which can often be the nicest part of year, minus insects. Trees are bare from November through April all over again. This year I witnessed -34 to -12 for about a week for the first time in my 40 year life. Unless you're from Illinois and seeking refuge, don't move here, just visit.
I lived in south eastern Wisconsin my whole life. Considering visiting other midwest states, we have bearable weather. Winter usually ends late March/April. We have great summer weather and fall. Winter is iffy. Sometimes its unbearably cold, and other times it's just fine. We don't have any tornados, or 12 inch snow. We do have flooding when there's excessive rain. Other than that, great.
Some years it won't snow till past Christmas and other years it snows before Halloween. Summer in Wisconsin is pleasant but the winters are unbearably cold. One year in south eastern Wisconsin we had 2 and a half solid weeks of temperatures below -30. WICKED COLD!
Yeah/yes I live in Wisconsin throughout the winter I get used to it I loved it because I am getting used to the cold and I love it/my state which/where my state is always cold!
The summers are quite nice But winters are absolute freezing hell. I've seen snow in the middle of JUNE here then it skyrockets to 97 degrees and sunny but fall is very hallow. Perfect fishing place in fall
Worst weather ever! Unbearably freezing in the winter, fall and spring are barely even seasons they're so short. Summer is hot and humid, and there are so many bugs! Minnesota should at least be in the top 5 for worst weather. Many of the people voting on here have clearly never been there. Basically the whole Midwest sucks. Southwest is the best!
Minnesota is only bad during the winter. Summer is actually very nice. It's June and we're getting mid to high 70s all week, perfect! The winter does suck though, from November sometimes October (rarely December) to sometimes April or even May. Summer snow is extremely rare but possible.
I think we are one of the only states in the entirety of the United States that has ever had it so cold outside, that you could get frostbite in under 10 minutes even with winter clothing on. How many other states can say that? Too much cold and snow.
Nebraska's weather is terrible. I've lived here for 30 years and you never get used to it. Insanely cold winters that go straight to a super thick humidity that you can cut with a knife months before Summer officially starts. If you get lucky you might get about a week of Fall, or Spring.
There are some states with colder winters and some with hotter summers than Nebraska gets, but I've never been to a state that gets unbearably miserable heat and bitter cold like NE. The summers are humid and can hover in the mid to upper 90s (and a few years ago there were days and days in the 100s), and the winters are usually within 20 degrees above or below 0 (-16 in my hometown the other night! ) with bitter wind. Oh, and also the tornadoes.
This would be #1 if it wasn't for the fact that few are dumb enough to live here, so not many people voted. Spend your entire winter scooping snow while it's below freezing, then spend your entire summer scratching mosquitos bites in muggy heat-waves. If you got any time left, you'll spend it in a shelter while you wait for the Tornado / Flood to pass.
Nebraska has the most Bi Polar weather in the WORLD. No joke it was gray and overcast for 10 minutes with a heavy rainfall. After that 10 minutes it looked like the sky hadn't been cloudy for a week. Nothing but straight sunshine.
Sorry but Michigan should be in the top 10. Especially as the years go on. There's technically 4 seasons, but it mind as well just be winter and summer because both are horrible and long. From severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, flooding, snowstorms, blizzards, and even the rare earthquake not to mention the constant high winds. I have to disagree with the top 10. Michigan can easily tie with Ohio. For the past 3 weeks, every single week has been a winter storm or an ice storm. It's absolutely ridiculous and depressing.
Here was literally the order of the seasons last academic school year: summer, winter, spring, winter, summer. Yes, you heard me correctly. In late September we got a heat wave and it was 90 degrees and humid which made it super unbearable. Summer in Michigan went on through early October, where it was in fact pleasant, about 70 degrees and partly cloudy, but by the end of October it was winter! You can tell when it is winter in Michigan because the sky is gray and it is super cold, and sometimes you'll get proper snow. The weather stayed like that until one week in mid-February, where it was 60 degrees and sunny. After that one week though more winter weather followed lasting until late April. What also makes me mad is instead of the proper snowfalls happening in December or January, they happen in April or early November! About a month later in Late May, it was 95 and humid! It is not common to have a year with weather like that in Michigan. What's also ironic is that I've lived in ...more
Grey, oppressive skies for 6 months (save for those 4 days in the winter when the sun shines, and you can count on sub zero temps at night on those occasions). Snowfall is quite heavy in winter, coupled with occasional warm ups that will test your ice skating skills everywhere. There is almost no Spring to speak of, snowstorms in April followed by Mosquito and road construction seasons. For a state bordering Canada, it can be very humid in the Summer. Windy and rainy falls give way to persistent snow after Halloween (if not before).
Winters in Michigan are the worst! It lasts from October to April, and it is always cold, always wet, and always grey during that time. Spring and fall are so short that they are barely even seasons! Fall is usually during a week or two in mid-October, and spring is usually during the last week of April and the first week of May. Summers are usually beautiful and pleasant, and they last from May to October, but because it is humid, when there is a heat wave and it gets up to 95 degrees, it feels like you're getting burned alive!
I live in Georgia, and it should be in the top ten. We have some of the most ridiculous weather you could imagine.
First of all, the weather is EXTREMELY unpredictable, which is weird since we don't have high altitude or weather patterns. Take winter for example, we only get snow once or twice a year cause' the snow always misses us and moves through North Carolina and Tennessee, and guess what? It HAS to be rain. We always get it like 5 or 6 times a week in January, February and march which is really annoying sine every time it gets really cold the rain comes in the hottest part of the day (it was 70 degrees on Christmas in 2021) and we only get snow when the weather people are being negative about it. And the summers, don't even get me started. It hardly goes below 65 degrees, and it feels like 100 degrees throughout July, when we get small thunderstorms almost every day. And what else? nothing, if you consider nothing to be the puzzle peace sized misquotes near Atlanta. Spring ...more
Where do I begin? I've lived here my entire life and I have to say it's Purgatory. The weather (especially in Fall, Winter and Spring) can range from 0 degrees to 95 degrees (especially in the Northeast Mountains). The Summer heat is sweltering with little to no wind. Humidity is insane. Monsoon season usually sets in around April 1st and continues until Oct 22nd. When it's cold here, your bones actually ache due to the humidity in the air. I've been outside in short sleeves... with snow on the ground. This is just the northeastern part. Don't get me started on Atlanta.
Never have a day off where it's sunny. Usually depressing rain, cold one day, hot as hell the next. Almost impossible to do anything. On top of that our traffic is the worst and partially because people can't drive in the weather
One night it was hot as hell and the next day felt like we were already in winter. That was at the beginning of fall
Summer = too hot. Every day. Even if it rains, no exceptions. Rated one of the hottest in the nation. Also, in the spring and the fall, you can expect that sometimes it'll be in the 60s or 70s one day and in the 30s the next. That happens every year, multiple times.
This should be in the top five. We have had some of the worst tornadoes in US history and we can have bad hurricanes.
Alabama has some of the worst weather in the country!
I love my gray, cloudy sky, temperate western Washington! There's nothing I hate more than a cloudless sky and extreme temperatures. If the sun wants to peep through a tiny bit through some cloud cover, that's about as much sun as I care for. Not everyone loves summer and sunshine. I am tired of the assumption that sunny is better. All I want is coolness and clouds. And lots of forest for shade.
I grew up in Seattle and am used to it, but this winter it was as if a grey blanket was draped over us for 8 7 months straight. It drizzles or rains almost every day. It's depressing. The summers are PERFECT, though.
Rain for 8 months straight. During the winter months, the sun doesn't come up until 9am. Even then, it's usually too cloudy to see the sun. Sunset is at 4pm for months at a time. Everything is always just cold and damp. All. The. Time.
The temperature is pretty good, but it's super rainy.
Anyone who says Arizona has nice weather should be forced to live without AC. Denial is unhealthy. Open your eyes and accept the truth. Nobody likes 110° unless they are masochistic, closeted psychopaths.
I love it here. I used to live in New Jersey, God forbid you plan an outdoor party or garage sale...it's guarenteed to have to be rescheduled. Hence the term...rain date. In Arizona, the Phoenix area, I expect hot in the summer...no problem, AC indoors, misters outdoors, just don't stand on the pavement in the afternoon sun. And you will never hear the words...hazy, hot and humid...don't underestimate how great that is.
There is a winter but it's mild and dry...not damp and no wind chills. I have lived here 17 years and not once have I ever complained about the weather.
One has to educate himself about ALL of the very different climates of Arizona. It's not so hot for months on end in many of it's regions. The Sedona area and slightly south doesn't have the extremes mentioned here. And even if you like snow (I don't), Flagstaff is at least SUNNY. The whole state is SUNNY,SUNNY, SUNNY! Coming from the Northeast (cloudy,cold windy) who doesn't love sunshine?
You want to live somewhere, where you can't leave the house and be active outside until well after dark, from May to mid-Oct, then AZ is for you. In July-Late September when you take a deep breath during the day, you feel like you are burning your lungs. After 11pm when you go for a walk or a jog, it may still be 110 degrees, but the sun isn't beating down on you. Daily lows during the summer are seen 4:30a to 5:45a, you play golf or tennis, then.
Maryland has the worst weather anywhere. And I speak from experience as I've been to most of the lower 48 states.
You can never enjoy a whole season of weather, because:
It's hot and humid in the summer. Cold in the winter, regardless if it snows or not. You can even have bright sunny days in the winter but cold as anything you've ever felt.
In the Spring, you may get one week of California weather. They never complain about the weather in California. So what am I still doing here?
The differences in the seasons is way too much. First thing, it's the summer and it's humid and you're thinking "I wish it was cooler" and then the winter is brisk and terrible, and all you can think is "oh man if only it was hot outside" and you can never get used to one climate like you can in Florida
Way too hot and humid in the summer, cold but not cold enough for it to snow in winter and the spring is either damp and cold, way too humid or raining. At least in the fall the weather is fine.
Winter = Frigid temperatures and a foot a snow.
Spring = stormy
Summer = always above 100 and it's so muggy.
Fall = hurricanes and it becomes really windy.
The summers here are very warm, but temperatures don't usually exceed 85 degrees. Expect extremely humid mornings and nights from June through September, as severe thunderstorms occur almost every night. From December through April, temperatures rarely exceed 40 degrees, but there can be two or three heat blasts with highs in the 60s and 70s, followed by a week of highs in the teens with wind chill, sometimes reaching negative values. We experience light snow weekly, with a significant snowstorm every few weeks. While we don't get as much snow as in the north, our winters can be very dangerous due to frequent ice storms, especially from November to April. During these months, it often rains during the day and then drops to the 20s at night, creating a lot of black ice.
Western North Carolina. Generally the summers are pretty nice, but they GOP on into October, and then there's 2 weeks of fall before it gets to be like winter. But it's not really winter. It is highly variable. It will have a low of 15 high of 30 one day, then low of 30 high of 70 the next! We once had a day, in March I believe, where the low was 26 and the high was 80. Talk about 4 seasons in one day! Then spring is ok, though a bit short.
How the hell can this state be #36? This state sucks. It's always either way too cold or way to hot, and we get snow in April. Spring doesn't even exist down here!
Three words: rain, rain and rain. Maybe it rains more other places? If so then they are sad places to live indeed.
