Top 10 U.S. States with the Worst Weather

The Top Ten
1 Ohio Ohio is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. Ohio is the 34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States.

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!

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.

If it's even slightly warm, it's gray and rainy. When it's not, it's thunderstorms. It's never, ever, ever nice outside. Ok, maybe 5 days a year. I gave up having a pool pass because it rains every weekend.

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.

2 Iowa Iowa is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Mississippi River on the east and the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River on the west. Iowa is a strong Republican state with Constitutional Carry. Masks have never been mandatory and Iowa was never locked down.

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.

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.

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!

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.

3 Oklahoma

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.

4 Pennsylvania Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

Paying ridiculously high taxes seems a treat compared to the living hell of the PA weatherscape...
Britally sticky heat all summer, snow ice and cold all winter and no redeeming spring or fall patterns.
Scranton is overall the saddest place I've ever been.

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.

5 Illinois Illinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. It is the 5th most populous state and 25th largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.

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.

I live in Kewanee and the last tornado here was in the 1990s and it was only an ef0 we get hot Summers and bad thunderstorms and we only got hail once this year I've seen worse weather in Arkansas!

6 Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

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.

Coldest state in the U.S. with extreme rainfall in some parts and extreme cold in others

Great weather for polar bears. For people, not so much.

7 Texas Texas is a state in the Southern USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

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.

8 New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

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.

9 Kansas Kansas is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the area.

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.

10 Indiana

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.

The humidity in southern Indiana gets to dangerous levels, it is absolutely miserable to even walk to your mailbox, hazardous to seniors and outdoor workers.

The Contenders
11 Missouri Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 21st most extensive, and the 18th most populous of the fifty states.

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

12 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

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!

13 Colorado Colorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

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.

14 Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.

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.

15 New York New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic Region. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.54 million residents in 2018, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is sometimes referred to as New York State.

New York gets pretty bad weather. I mean a few days ago we just had our first winter storm down in the finger lakes and Southwestern part of the state. it just depends on where you live in the state. In valleys it would be worse since cold air falls and warmer air rises, so it would make sense, but it also depends on your geographical region in the state.

We get all the weather in NY. Downstate where I live we get cold, rainy winters. It snows a bit too, but the rain the next day will wash the snow away. It was a Nor'easter (storm with rain snow and wind) everyday! In spring and fall it can be 50 or 90 degrees. And summer is warm and dry, for the most part. It thunders a lot in fall, and there are hurricanes then too.

Only the lower part of NYS is somewhat nice in terms of weather. You go to the upper part, and you won't see the sun for months while the sky literally dumps up to 200 inches of snow on top of you. You'll be sick of the blistering on your hands after waking up at 4 AM every morning to shovel all of that.

Nobody wants to hurt poor NYs reputation but not only are the weather persons totally useless but the weather here over the last 10-15 years has been the WORST. I mean HORRIBLE to be in! Anywhere is better than here...

16 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

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.

17 Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

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.

18 Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.

It's either way too hot, way too cold, snowing, or raining. There is NEVER a happy medium. Winter lasts 6-7 months out of the year, then the summer is all road work trying to fix all the many ways all the roads got destroyed during 6-7 months. You get Fall for about a month, and spring is non-existent (I usually refer to it as Winter's hangover). You only get good weather (assuming you get it) from MAYBE May-Sept, and that's if it doesn't rain every day. There are countless other problems I could name about MA but since this site is limited to the weather I will just leave it at that. Do not live here.

I love when people talk about how much they love the '4 seasons'. Haha! Unfortunately that climate doesn't exist anymore, it's primarily 1 season... winter. Winter is 8 months long, Sep - May. Spring and fall also don't exist anymore just a couple depressing weeks of rain and/or cold. Good news is there is a summer for maybe a couple of months but you'll miss it if you have to work like most people since it only exist Monday - Friday. Rest assured it will be raining or cloudy Saturday/ Sunday.

One day 75, the next day 55. Short summer, long winter, no spring. Need more cold weather clothing than summer stuff. Fall is overrated; a few nice days but mostly gray, rainy and rapidly losing daylight. Daylight saving time is terrible! There can be no snow through February then all hell breaks loose until May. April disappoints ("the cruelest month"). July is the best month in my opinion, when there is early and late light for a few brief weeks and the temps are actually summery. If it weren't for the cultural attractions and friends, I'd be out of here.

Always sunny, Always dry, and it never and I mean it NEVER rains here! Also, if you are not familiar with New England weather, that's when it can be like 70 degrees one day and than the next day it's like 10 degrees. That's Massachusetts for you! And to top that off, It snows at the worst times! In my opinion I think we have the worst weather in the country.

19 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.

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.

20 Minnesota Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

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.

It can be -37 with a -40 wind chill but can also go up to 110. I have been in 3 tornados and I am 16. It snows in October and May. It also gets to a point where it is to cold to snow. The summers are hot and sticky. Why the hell is this not up higher

21 Michigan

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!

The best features of Michigan are the Great Lakes, the Upper Peninsula, Ann Arbor's University of Michigan environment, and being located at the western edge of the Eastern Time zone. Michigan's weather is no worse than many states at its latitude. It's winters are mistakenly lumped int with the much more frigid winters of Minnesota. (Must be the "M" that begins the name of each state.) Michigan's winters are moderated by the Great Lakes without resulting in the massive snow falls of places like Buffalo, New York...A very nice state if one avoids the eastern cities of Detroit, Flint, and other cities bordering Lake Huron.

22 Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.

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!

23 Washington Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho, and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is the only state named after a president.

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.

24 West Virginia West Virginia is a state located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States. It is bordered by Pennsylvania to the north, Maryland to the east and northeast, Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest. West Virginia is the 41st largest state by area, and is ranked 38th in population. The capital and largest city is Charleston.

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

25 Georgia Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was established in 1732, the last of the original Thirteen Colonies.

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
