During the winter, it can be snowy and blizzards in the north and heat up to 80 in the south.

Down near the gulf, yes. During the summer, thunderstorms can pop up out of nowhere. During the winter it'll be cold one day, then 80 degrees the next.

One day we had the record high for November, and the very next day we have the record low. Out of nowhere there was a blizzard. we have on and of rain. its crazy!

So one day I was driving and it was a nice sunny 70° the fifteen minutes later the weather dropped to 45° and and it was hailing and I was a mile away from a tornado. Gotta love TX.

3 Michigan Michigan

Who ever would of predicted that the December of 2015, Michigan would still be in the 50's pretty much. It wasn't until the next year it felt cold again how bizarre here in Michigan. - htoutlaws2012

April 9 2018 Monday it snowed two inches. April 13 Friday is supposed to be 70 degrees. April 16 Monday, more snow expected. "If you don't like Michigan weather, wait 5 minutes, it will change."

Most winters are gloomy and vary between rain and snow. Available sunshine generally less than 10 percent. Sickening really.

How is this not #1? At least it should be #2!
Monday: 88 degrees and Sunny
Tuesday, Wed, and the rest of the week:same as Monday
Weekend: 20 degrees and snowing

No kidding! This winter was the absolute worst! It kept snowing till LATE APRIL

Three years ago it even snowed in May

4 Missouri 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.

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.

On the first day of spring, it was about forty-five degrees and snowing in Missouri. How does that even happen?

The high today is around 60 and tomorrow the weather forecast is snow. Did I mention it's April?

It was 86 degrees 3 days ago. And it’s been snowing the past 2. It’s Winter in Spring.

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

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.

Weather man in Arkansas: Okay we are going to some rain but other than that mostly sunny.
Arkansas LOL no, we are going to have all rain and right before it turns dark we're going to have a tornado, than continue the rain with hail, than it will stop, then it's going to rain some more, and after all of that then and only THEN for the next three days it'll be sunny but cold, lol enjoy!

6 Ohio 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.

We had all four seasons in one day before. In the morning it was frosty and foggy like autumn, by early afternoon it was like higher 80 degrees, then it down poured and lightening and come night time we got snowflakes. Also, if the weather calls for under 50% chance of rain, expect rain. Over 50% chance of rain, expect clear skies all day. One time the sun was shining, next thing we know we're getting unexpected hail the size of quarters.

The weather predicted sun one day and we all went to school. Everybody had to go home early and the next day there was no school because the school got snowed in

You can shovel your drive way in the morning and get a sunburn in the afternoon

Its changed about 100° in one day before

7 Iowa 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.

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.

8 Indiana Indiana

It was up in the 70's the other day, and now it's snowing like crazy. Let's give it up for Indiana weather, everybody.

I honestly think Indiana has the most unpredictable weather. This is because in the morning in spring you'll want to have on a long sleeve shirt and pants. Then in the evening you'll want to have shorts and a tee-shirt or a tanktop on. I mean come on Indiana

You can where a Eskimo suit in the morning and shorts in the afternoon

it sucks

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.

It’s normally like 70 degrees in the winter and snow doesn’t come until January or February in West TN.

Literally the temp goes up and down every day and just rains randomly - EliHbk

Literally have had days with every type of weather possible

We got sunshowers, we got thunder without any clouds, and I'm sure at some point lightning struck on a starry night. I'll be out with my kids on a beautiful 80F day, clouds roll in, thunderhail in August, fifteen minutes later it's 115 in the heat index and mosquitos everywhere.

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

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.

21 North Carolina North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

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

It’ll be really cold in the morning and then when I get out of school it’ll be hot.
