U.S. States With the Worst Weather

The Top Ten

1 Oklahoma Oklahoma

Very spontaneous weather. The high humidity makes it feel hotter than it actually is, making what could potentially be a perfectly-sunny day into a nastily-sticky day. Don't even get me started with our tornadoes.

yeah

2 words: Tornado Alley

Not only are there so many tornadoes and thunderstorms here, but it gets so damn hot in the summer. One summer I lived there it would get up to 110 degrees every day!

2 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.

I'm sad to be from the crap shot they call Ohio. Better pack plenty of antidepressants if you plan on living here for any length of time...don't even get me started on the weather or people there lol

Nothing but gray clouds from Fall to Spring. Its usally under 50 degrees 3/4 of the year. we only have 2 seasons Summer and Crappy

Well in this case, this morning I was wearing 3 jackets and jeans. Tonight shorts and a hoodie. Tomorrow is gonna be 70 and sunny, Friday 65 and sunny, Saturday 60 and rain, Sunday 50 and thunderstorms, Monday 35 and snow.

It sucks here I’m dying

3 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.

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 were its nice. Nice for me is saying wow its nice out today. Not wow at least it's better then 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.

We get like one month of beautiful temperate weather in the May. Other than that, its ugly, cold and dreary in all other seasons and blazing hot in June and July.

It has been raining ALL week nonstop. The wind is very strong and makes it hot and humid. Also next week it's supposed to rain non stop to

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

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.

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! - Netcorrupter

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.

Dear Jesus the rain. You'd swear you lived in the Pacific Northwest. Nope - enjoy the raining and flooding.

5 Illinois 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.

Awful winters. don't live here, awful, awful, awful

In my second grade Halloween in school, we were at recess AND IT WAS SNOWING!

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.

5 months of dry cold winter 5 months or hot unbearable humid summer 1 month spring 1 month of fall.

6 Alaska 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.

How is this not number 1?

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

Don't go outside with wet hair, that's all I have to say

Don’t even get me started on the earthquakes!

7 New Jersey 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.

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!

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.

8 Kansas 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.

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.

Must love weather to live here

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

9 Indiana Indiana

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.

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.

Weather is always changing, there will be a 20 degree difference in one day. Summers are hot, humid, and uncomfortable.

We have tornadoes, blizzards, floods, heat waves, and polar vortexes. It is freezing in the winter and hot and humid in the summer.

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

How is Texas not number 1? Rainy, windy, extreme heat and cold in the same day within 4 hours. Don't tell Texas what bad weather is it can make you experience it in no time.

Texas weather needs to figure out what it's doing because we had ice a few days ago then rain then beautiful weather and to day it's hotter than balls I bet anything it will rain again tomorrow

At least it keeps liberals away from this beautiful state

Yay a way to keep those mean people away from Texas

11 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.

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

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.

We want to move. It sucks so bad. Don't step foot in this state.

12 Colorado 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.

Beating down sun in the summer and fall.

I love the cold and the snow and the isolation is a bonus.

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.

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

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!

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.

Worst weather in the nation by far. 40 degrees below normal AGAIN for the entire week. Mid April and we haven't even reached "normal" temps yet. Rain/snow in May and then right into 90's with maxed out humidity.

It's below freezing in the north

14 New York New York

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.

Worst state ever!

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.

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.

15 Massachusetts 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.

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.

MA does not have the best of the weather. Rains a lot and when it is cold it is really polar style. Do not like that type of weather at all. Also the fall is few days really, lots of rain during that time as well and the summers are so short

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.

Certainly the most miserable state is Massachusetts!

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

Lived in NE, you could have zero degree in the morning, sunny sixties at noon, mid 30s at 3 and then minus twenty at midnight. With tornado warnings in between.

We have been getting super bad storms for the past three years including 3 tornadoes one in each of those years

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.

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.

17 Michigan Michigan

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.

Winter in Michigan begins well before Thanksgiving and ends the week of Easter. Summer in Michigan begins well before Memorial Day and ends the week of Columbus Day. That means that fall and spring have about 1-3 weeks each a year, so there is rapidly changing weather here.

It is -2 degrees

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!

18 Minnesota 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.

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

Live here and re-vote! Worst in the US! Maybe the world!

I hate the cold.

Did you know that we get snow in October and April, there was just a huge snowstorm in April

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.

So depressing!

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.

Why is Florida this low It feels Like death when you walk outside and we only get one season; Summer - BreakFastBeast2005

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!

We moved to Prescott 12 years ago from Ny best decision!

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? - Netcorrupter

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.

Beats the Hell out of Kansas! At least you can go outside.

23 Maine Maine

The winters last forever. Way too cold for too long. I stay inside for about 5 months straight. The summer starts off nice, but then the brown-tailed moths and deer tics come out. Those aren't fun. About mid-summer, it gets entirely too humid and sticky outside. Fall is best, but only lasts for a few short months. Plus, it means winter is coming soon.

6-8 weeks of nice weather all year long, and only about 30 of those days are sunny. The rest of the year is cold, gray, and miserable. Truly some of the worst winters in the country. All-in-all, a depressing place to live.

Not bad in the summer, winters are awful. It gets to 10 or 20 below zero severaltimes per year and its nothing but heavy wet snow for most of the year. Good Ice Fishing And Snowmobiling, but if you want summer, maine is not the place for you as it rarely gets over 80 degrees even in july

A total of 6 to 8 weeks of nice weather a year... maybe

24 Alabama 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.

Yes number 2 -8 at least

Alabama has some of the worst weather in the country!

This should be in the top five. We have had some of the worst tornadoes in US history and we can have bad hurricanes.

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.

Flash floods, never just light rain

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

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!

Very warm summers but does not get above 85 often. expect extremely humid morning and nights from June thru September as there are severe thunderstorms almost every nights. From December thru April it does not get above 40 often but expect two or three heat blasts with highs in the 60s and 70s Followed by a week of highs in the teens with wind chill some in the negatives. Light Snow Weekly with a significant Snow storm every few weeks. Although it does not snow like in the north our winters can be very dangerous because of our notorious ice storms every other week and Especislly in November- April where it rains during the day but the drops into the 20s at nights wich leaves a lot of black ice

30 New Hampshire New Hampshire

I've lived here all my life and winters generally begin in November and "can" go into early April. Winter temps are generally in the 20s - 30s but can drop down into the single numbers which even for natives can seem bone chilling. Snow is to be expected and most storms are generally 5-8 inches but can and do go higher which keep the skiers happy. On the upside the highways are cleared to bare tar after any snow storm. Spring (May) and summers (mid-June - September) can be lovely and so appreciated but aren't always guaranteed and seem too short. Temps do vary - high 70s to low 90s - with humidity thrown in. Some compensation can be found in the fall if you enjoy the foliage when temps in the 60's. A variety for sure!

Its too dry. It NEVER rains here and I mean never. we always get snow storms though, which is very annoying. its always freezing here it never gets above 40 during the winter time. and during the summer its always really hot and sunny.

31 Vermont Vermont

When you finally come out of your cave winter house in May or early June, it's time to sweat because almost no one has central air in their houses. Summer happiness is over by October when Winter returns.

WORST foul weather anywhere in the U.S. Still has snow in late May. When you are stuck in a gully between two mountains, the sun sets at 2:30. If you are unfortunate enough to be a work-a-day joe, driving to work on icy roads in the morning are dangerous. Road crews are slow when it dumps 12ft. of snow overnight. People are unhappy and smug. So damn happy we moved.

33 Hawaii Hawaii Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state of the United States of America, receiving statehood on August 21, 1959.

Hawaii has this painful type of heat:Moisture heat. When Hawaii gets "hot", it feels like you're getting burnt alive due to the moisture in Hawaii's atmosphere and such. It isn't summer yet in HNL, but my body's always sweating already.

Unpopular opinion from a local: Hawaii does NOT have good weather... or is overrated.

The summers get brutal, and I almost passed out in JANUARY of all months due to heat illness.
Don't even get me started on the humidity and rain...

Also, when they say it's cold, it's really nothing! What's so bad about below 20°C (68°F) but above 10°C (50°F)? People in the mainland will have difficulty not reacting at Hawaii locals that can't stand it.

The hurricanes are often pretty brutal when they land, and have insane effects. Floods, REALLY scorching days afterwards, and try to get me started on the traffic butterfly effect. It just makes the weather in Hawaii worse.

It was even more brutal last year, due to the volcano. There was a heat index of 95°F (35°C) in LATE SEPTEMBER... WHEN THE TEMPERATURE WAS ACTUALLY 87°F (31°C)!

38 North Dakota North Dakota North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889.

In April you have either tornadoes, snowstorms, or catastrophic flooding. Windchill often gets below -50 in the winter and Fargo is known for having some of the highest heat indexes in the nation. It's a no-brainer why people in this state drink so much.

Five months with an average high under 40, seven months with an average high under 60. Average low of 6, 0, 6 from December to February. Flat state with terrible winds. Cold! Cold! Cold!

Actually, weather in North Dakota is windier and colder than South Dakota in the winter...

I live on the Tennessee River in Northeast MS. Summers are long & hot, perfect for lake life, but very humid. Fall & winter are typically very mild, but winter temperatures can feel colder than they actually are due to rain. I prefer warm weather, so if I didn’t live here I’d want to be on a beach somewhere!

40 Oregon Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.

Here in the Willamette Valley there is a lot of gray skies and lots of rain. We do have nice springs turning to summer (finally! ) after July 4th. If we are lucky summer lasts until mid October but sometimes it ends early. Falls are beautiful sometimes warm and balmy sometimes cold and colorful. Back to winters, wet, windy and gray, very, very gray. Eastern Oregon is a whole different story. Even in winter they have clear blue skies (it's very cold though).

People kill themselves because it's so depressing. Move out now!

State of doom and gloom. Mostly rain for 9 months. Barely a summer 2 months if your lucky. Forget Autumn, gone in a blink of a eye. Beautiful but the weather here is depressing. Explains the suicide rates.

This place does have a lot of rain but it has normal weather too - bjinmaro64

Everyone's commenting about (Rain/Hot/Tornadoes/Blizzards/Etc)...I live in a valley in NE South Dakota and the temperature can differ drastically in the winter...Last february we had a 1 week period where wind chills were near -20 then the heat suddenly blasted up to nearly 80...You want severe weather come to SD we get everything every other state gets (besides hurricanes)...

42 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.

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.

43 Tennessee Tennessee Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern United States. Tennessee is the 36th largest and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States.

Hot and rainy springs and summers and sometimes really cold winters.

Very hot and wet in the summer and tornados and thunderstorms most of the spring and summer - qwhx

so true

45 Delaware Delaware Delaware is one of the Mid-Atlantic states located in the Northeast megalopolis region of the United States.

Long, cold, wet and snowy Winters. Humid, grey and never-ending rain in the Spring. Summer days have high temperatures amplified by the humidity; sever thunderstorms and flash floods add to the misery. Autumn days are the most bearable; with mainly mild temperatures, but the humidity and rain showers overshadow the fall pleasantries.

46 California California

Southern California has the best weather in the United States. No humidity. The Pacific ocean is like a giant water cooler. Winters are mild with no snow however if you want snow we have the mountains. You can go to the mountains and the beach in one day.
I've been to Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, New York, Florida, Italy, France, Austria, Belguim, Russia, Romania, Scotland and more and California has the best weather. Try San Diego, California.

I live in California and the weather is great year round

I live in San Francisco and it can go from 51 degrees and raining to 87 degrees and sunny in a matter of
Seconds. Summers are mild and
Pleasant and winters are absolutely horrible. It’s either windy and 48 degrees or 35 degrees and hail.

Best weather ever...
