Top Ten U.S. States with the Most Unpredictable Weather
The Top Ten U.S. States with the Most Unpredictable Weather
They always have tornadoes and bad weather and have lots of snow in the winter. They have hurricanes frequently.
One day it was 78 degrees sunny and humid the next in was 22 degrees cold windy cloudy and dry!
In the winter you NEVER no what the weather will be like. this past year I remember it being about 30 the day before christmas then on christmas day it ends up being 80.
I remember once when they had a tornado warning and it rainned very heavy in dallas I saw it on earthcam - trains45
Michigan can have a high risk of severe weather on the west side of the state and snow on the east side November 17 2013 proved this
Summer 2019 - We were supposed to have a cooler summer this year based on predictions, and at the beginning of June these predictions seemed true. Highs were only getting into the lower 70s. But by the end of June and into July we were getting multiple days with highs in the 90s and upper 80s.
Here is some forecast history to show the unpredictability of Michigan weather
September 7, 2017 - High of 60 degrees
September 21, 2017 - High of 95 degrees and sunny, with high humidity
October 8, 2018 - 82 degrees and sunny.
October 12, 2018 - 45 degrees and cloudy.
April 17, 2018 - 30 degrees and snowing
April 30, 2018 - 70 degrees and sunny
May 28, 2018 - 100 degrees and sunny, with high humidity
December 19, 2018 - 50 degrees and sunny
Last week of January 2019 - Polar vortex with temperatures as low as -20 with 1-2 feet of snow
First week of February 2019 - 50 degrees
The Polar vortex made the temperature go down to 15 below zero, and within a week the temperature went up to 50 degrees.
Truly a state with every extreme. It can get well over 100 degrees in the summer and below zero in the winter in the northern part of the state. There are periods of extreme drought, and catastrophic flooding. Of course, we are consistently one of the worst hit states for tornados every year. We are also one of the worst states for lightning strikes, hail storms, and high winds. Wouldn't trade it for anything though. I love Oklahoma!
The weather of Okahoma is ridiculous. The difference between Northern and Southern weather is so confusing. 10 in Miami 75 in McAlester.
If it were possible to fit five seasons into one day, Oklahoma would do it.
High 70s for two days, and then snow out of nowhere the next day. This is February
I have lived in Missouri all my life, mostly in Springfield area, and have experienced many days when it will be 60 in the morning and 30 with snow and ice by the time you get home from work.
The high today is around 60 and tomorrow the weather forecast is snow. Did I mention it's April?
On the first day of spring, it was about forty-five degrees and snowing in Missouri. How does that even happen?
Illinois should be #1 because one day it's 34 degrees and snowing then two days later it's 80 degrees and sunny.
Illinois should be number 1 because At the beginning of the week we had 80 degree weather but 6 days later its snowing
Illinois should be #1 the most unpredictable weather I've seen in my life, I also lived in Mississippi pretty good weather not the best definitely not the worst either.
Virginia weather doesn’t make up its mind. We have hot, humid summers. Weak winters, overall. Let me tell you - spring and fall are WACK. It’ll be like March or May and we’ll get a snow day, randomly. It’ll be November and 85. If you want to be a lifeguard you’ll close the pool a lot due to thunderstorms in the Summer, cus of the mountains. I live in the Piedmont region and our weather is weird. Spend some time here and you’ll understand why we’re number five on this list.
WE LOVE BAU JSJSJJJSJJSJS
As someone who lives in Ohio I'll tell we have the WORST weather. It has gone from hot and sunny to rain, cold, and snow within a day! It's even happened within a day!
October 3 2017 it was in the mid 30s in the morning and in the low 80s in the afternoon.
January 31 2019 only had a high of 5 degrees followed by 55 degrees on February 3rd
October 11 2019 the temperature nearly reached 80 in the afternoon. The next morning it reached 39 with rain and even a couple snowflakes
October 15 2019 had a morning frost and 32 degree temps followed by a 70 degree sunny afternoon.
As of me writing this (1/9/20) It was 14 this morning and it is supposed to be 63 in 2 days.
I don't think any other state has had a colder Halloween than Christmas... Or never having to wear you winter coat whilst snow is still on the ground. Snow days? Don't know her
One day it's freezing cold, so the next day you where coats or jackets and pants. When you walk outside, it's sO hot and you get to suffer.
It is crazy here. One moment there is snow. Next it's sunny. Then it's raining
-20 degree wind chills Friday high of 10, after 5 inches of snow Thursday, high of 62 on Saturday tornado Monday don't know what state has tops Kansas.
Whoever made this post doesn't know simple grammar and spelling.
I have wore a winter coat in July
In January I had to take off all of my winter clothes and wear shorts and a tank top.
I remember one day in January it was around 60 degrees and the next day it was in it's low 30's. I would also like to point out our weird rain in the summer. Not just are we humid but we will get VERY unexpected rain. I remember one day I went to the pool when the forecast was clear sunny sky's and then we had this huge rain storm that lasted for like 48 minutes than it was all sunny again. - A native Arkansan
Arkansas will be 50 degrees one day, then 90 the next. On top of that, we get rain and storms out of nowhere. We either have a drought, or huge amounts of rain! Plus, winter is so confusing, because we can have like 3 inches of snow and then it melts by 8 a.m. when it snowed at 6. Please, make up your mind Arkansas! - A native Arkansan
The waether forecast recently showed a low of 33 and a high of 78! By noon it was 75 degrees and by midnight or around 2 in the morning it was 32 degrees! Storms are crazy unpredictable and you never know if you’re gonna have a tornado or a clear sunny day.
It’s got the most unpredictable weather in the country.
Colorado's lowest low was -61 degrees Fahrenheit and its highest high was 114 degrees Fahrenheit. Not to mention being landlocked, next to mountains, and being a grassland all contribute to janky as f weather. You can wear shorts in the winter and a heavy coat around summertime! - MasterBeef
My most extreme memory of this is a day in June when I was in elementary school, sitting at my younger sister's soccer game in a tank top and shorts. The sun was shining and it was around 80 degrees. Later that day we were taking my sister out for a celebratory dinner and a winter storm warning came through. As we were leaving dinner, it started snowing and snowed the whole night.
If you don't like the weather here wait five minutes is a common saying in colorado
I live here, and it's a totally historic and cute state. But it's unpredictable. Yesterday it was 35 degrees.now it's 80
If you don't like the weather here wait five minutes is a common saying to explain Tennessee. Bipolar also works really well.
My parents never bothered planning more than a day or two a head due to the weather being so unpredictable. Weather is more unless than a politician here. lol
Yesterday was 20 degrees, next day it's sunny, day after it's flooding
The weather here is ridiculous. Yesterday was 85 degrees, right now it's 40. Even weather channels have a hard time predicting weather here, especially West TN.
Snows for two days, 85 degree heat the next three, and a thunderstorm on Friday with a tornado warning, in a week. In April. Iowa man.
Iowa should be in the top 5 of this list. I’ve lived here for a long time, and it sucks when you’re just going on a walk, storm appears, can’t see crap, strong winds, temperature drops, uh oh, I didn’t get home on time, and now I just got a frostbite and died.
I love and love this state but once in November, 2018 one tree in front of our house met the ground in 13 seconds of the rain starting... This was also in the middle of fall not spring... But fall
One day it was like 70 degrees and then a couple days later it was snowing hardcore and I was freezing my ass off completely shocked. Honestly don't move here if you are not prepared to carry two extra pairs of clothing to change into for the weather throughout the day.
Polar freeze dropped temperatures below -46 with windchill, and a couple days later it's gonna be 55, right in the beginning of February. Nearly a 100 degree change within a few days.
Three years in Indiana & the winters are the worst. The snow is everyday for three months. I hate Indiana.
Should be number one because temperatures increase and decrease every day by a lot and thunderstorms some days and tornadoes around the north.
KY is #1
Literally different weather every single day. Yesterday it was nice and sunny, today it’s like 30° And raining w a chance of flooding. Not to mention tomorrow it’s supposed to snow 😑
One day, It's 90°, next It's 50°, then it's 95°, then It's 40° and raining, then it snows, then it's 80°... I could keep going!
One day it's so sunny and nice the next day there is a tornado than the next day it's snowing! Than six hours later that same day it's nice and sunny and warm
I live in nc and we have like snow sun rain storm and more sun like in the summer you could walk outside and it be sunny then you go inside and go back out and there would be a thunderstorm
I played in the snow one morning and the same day, that afternoon, I was outside with t shirt and shorts on playing with the remains of left over snow while it was 70 degrees outside.
One day, it rains even though you expect it to be sunny. Another day, it's sunny even though you expect it to rain. The Carolinas may have a mild climate and all, but don't expect the weather around here to be too easy to predict even with the help of weather forecasting. At least from my everyday experience living here. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
The weather here is so unpredictable it doesn't make any sense!
In one month there can be blizzards, heavy rain, hail, and tornadoes. And the temperature can go from 15 degrees to 70 degrees in a week.
Literally the temp goes up and down every day and just rains randomly - EliHbk
Literally have had days with every type of weather possible
MASS SHOULD BE FIRST, one day it will be 70 and then the next it will be snowing and 14 degrees. We have variety of weather not just one like florida.
MASS SHOULD BE 1ST ON THIS LIST
Tornadoes frequently hurricanes thunderstorms because of the tropical climate
I don't know whether to laugh or scream that Florida is so low. Clearly, nobody here has visited Florida often... - rankist
It can be cold in May, warm in January, it constantly rains in summer, it almost never rains in spring. One of my friends in middle school said we live in a bipolar state because of the weather. It's unpredictable. - Elric-san
This should be number 1
They get hurricanes all the time - Bizcut4life
Warm one day snow the next day and freezing temp
4/15; 20 inches of snow
Cold cold cold
In April It'll snow for a couple inches, then the next day the snow will be melted.
Should be in the top ten. One day 95 and humid, the next it's 75 and dry. IN FALL. One day, there was both a downpour/tornado warning and a buncha sunshine! In winter, one day it was 40 and snowy, the next its 60 and sunny.
We can have all four seasons ina weeks time! No telling what the weather is gonna be like the next day...can't fully trust the forecast.
Don't even get me started on anything other than summer. In summer it's just hot. Anything else is completely unpredictable.
Georgia is bipolar.
All these other states don't know weather change. We had snow in July before. One day it was 90 degrees in March and the next day we had a record snowfall. March was hot and towards the summer in april we got more record snowfall. Some winters don't even get any snow or cold. Right now I have rain and thunder for almost a whole month and a half straight!
Reached 75 degrees in November, had massive amounts of rain in October, and was dry in April for the most part.
Feb. 24 - 70 degree weather. Warm & sunny.
Feb. 25 - tornado. Thunderstorms. Cold weather. Snowfall at night.
Feb. 26 - 20s/30s. Cold.
One day it's sub-zero frost-bite inducing temperatures, next day it's 70 with clear skies and no breeze
I place where your nostrils can freeze shut one day, and the next day it's sunny and 75...
We had a lot of one week, and then the next week it was hot enough to melt the snow. Then not long after, we had a blizzard that melted into a flood.
During the winter it can easily be bellow freezing and the next week feel like summer. During the summer it can get up to nearly 100 degrees!
Just unpredictable, like Cornhuskers football...
Dude not even a few days ago it was sunny then it was like snow. Then we barely had snow in December but at the end of January it was all like yeah let’s have a bunch of snow to make u miss like 5 days of school.
South Dakota's weather doesn't even care about the season, it has snowed in the summer. In 2018 my home town (Philip) was #1 coldest in the nation
It goes from 50 to 90 and on christmas it's usually 80 then the next week its like 30 which is like horrible weather and then you have a couple weeks later and then it will be 90 again.
We had a day where it was 80 degrees in February, it was 22 the very next day.
Yep - Jonerman
It’s 20° one day, then it’s 80° the next.
Seriously 2 days ago it was in the 80s almost 90s and now it is in the 40s.
Like you would not believe. One day the temps are in the eighties and the next forties.
Once it snowed for about 3 days straight then the next week it was in the mid 70’s
Tell me about it
Winters are cold as hell, summers hot as hell,and in the spring one day its 70 degrees and the next day it's 35 degrees. That type of weather happens a lot in March and April though. And it rains a lot in May and you never know when it'll rain.
Wicked weather for a great state.
At least it snows there a lot! ❄️
Washington is actually very undpredictable and should be higher up. It will be raining for 10 mins, sunny and hot, raining right after, then sunny again. - elpy
One day it’s 80 degrees next day it is 20 degrees and snowing
THE TEMPERATURE GOES FROM 70-30 DEGREES IN 12 HOURS. Also it’ll snow in one half of the state and rain in the other half.
The weather changes so frequently here that its crazy. Christmas was 55 and no snow and then the day after it was 30 and 2 feet of snow. Its just crazy!
There could be a winter storm alert in effect, and notuung happens, the forecast could be sunny, and out of nowhere there is a blizzard covering vancouver to Eugene. In the summer everything is on fire except the rain.
In the morning its cold In the after noon its hot and rainy then at night its cold.Also it can be 87 then the next day its 20.
