U.S. States With the Worst Weathercfb
The Top Ten
Why do I still live here. Most tornados and earthquakes in the US. Run
I had a day where I walked outside in shorts because it was 70 degrees and there was unmelted snow from the previous day on the ground.
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.
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.V 14 Comments
I do have to admit. The weather in Iowa is horrible, if you're a wimp. - JakePlaid
Tornadoes, blizzards, thunderstorms, hail etc; - cfb
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
Rainy cloudy springV 5 Comments
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 isn't an odd occasion to run the air conditioner and furnace in the same day. People in Ohio lose their minds when the sun comes out.
Very cloudy and rainy

Hellishly humid summers that start in mid may and can last until early October. Then, 3 or so months of "nice" weather until January. Then January - April is just cold enough to keep you uncomfortable and shut up inside, pining for the springtime which barely will last a few weeks. The Philadelphia area has roughly 3 months of tolerable weather. It's truly the worst. I've lived in both Florida and New England.
I lived here for my entire childhood. I wish I could speak positively about Pennsylvania, but the climate is hard to beat for rain, snow, and the never-ending wind. Don't forget about the consistent days of overcast and threats of rain every time you step outside.
Northeastern PA has the worst weather climate I have ever lived in. If its not raining then its probably snowing but one thing for sure its almost always overcast and gloomy. Very depressing.
I agree, rainy damp and depressing. no wonder everyone drinks!V 5 Comments
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.
Hot and incredibly humid in the summer, and the winters are full of ice storms.
In my second grade Halloween in school, we were at recess AND IT WAS SNOWING!
5 months of dry cold winter 5 months or hot unbearable humid summer 1 month spring 1 month of fall.V 4 Comments
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!
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.
Hot humid summers, freezing cold winters. Rains all spring. Better like the indoors here! (In the basement due to tornadoes! )
Must love weather to live here
Come to Kansas if you wanna expirence a heat wave and blizzard at the same time all while raining and a tornado hits your home
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!V 1 Comment
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.
SICK OF THE LONG hot summers and constant humid winds, it's just miserable. Like the devil's bad breath. Even in Jan! Land isn't land, it's just flat clay. No clear streams, no mountains, just endless miles of people and the same stupid corporate logos.
Houston Texas is way over populated with illegals from Mexico and South America. Murders everyday. Hurricanes every year. Flooding all over Houston. 4 feet of water in your house. Apartments are $1000 to $2500 per month or you live with illegals. Houston is the RAT HOLE of Texas.

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.
We have tornadoes, blizzards, floods, heat waves, and polar vortexes. It is freezing in the winter and hot and humid in the summer.
Weather can never stay warm for more than a couple days. It’s spring right now, and a couple days ago it was 70 degrees and now it’s 38!V 3 Comments
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.
Joplin Tornado. enough said - bobbythebrony
O.K., so Monday in April, we've got 56. Not so bad right? 64 on Tuesday, still gray. 91 on Wednesday! 33 on Thursday and back to 50 on Friday. Oh, and add in one tornado, a sleet storm, and a 50 percent humidity drop:-¿
I don't know
Hope I had proper grammar:-).
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 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
TO MUCH SNOW. periodV 1 Comment
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.
Upstate is terrible in the winter
Upstate has nice, snowy winters! You experience all four seasons here.
Worst state ever!V 1 Comment
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.
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!V 2 Comments
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.
Blistering hot one day, then the next day you have to wear a coat. Tornado Valley, floods, dry spells, snow, ice...we have it all!
Cold then hot; tornadoes - cfb
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.
I really despise having weather here. The rain just rains too much in the summer and it never stops. - DumbFriesNub
Humid summers & frigid winters
Always experincing for seasons in two weekd
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.
Depression central. Going to move out!
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.
Definitely bad and right now it’s summer but it’s pouring so hardV 5 Comments
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.
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.
Why is Florida this low It feels Like death when you walk outside and we only get one season; Summer - BreakFastBeast2005V 4 Comments
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).
I hate living in Michigan and can't wait to move. It's either too hot, too cold, snowing, raining, humid, or windy. Not to mention full of liberals. The state and local governments of any major city are strong on affirmative action and it shows in the culture and attitude of it's employees.
It's nice 3 months out of the year. It gets nice in February for a week and you feel like it's spring and then you get 4 inches of snow. The weather is more unpredictable than Florida.
Did you know that winters in Michigan and Minnesota are more miserable than winters in Alaska?!V 6 Comments
How the hell can this state be 24th worst, obviously no one that's voting has lived here... this place sucks number 1
This should be higher, even though the summers are beautiful, the winters are pure hell.
It sunsets in January at 4:00, and we got snow from october to APRIL.
Our weathers are like so bipolar it can go from -10 degrees to like 10000000 degrees.V 5 Comments
Its like living somewhere where the sun literally wants you dead. You go inside in April and can come back out in October
I live in Arizona and it feels like I'm being burned whenever I go outside.
Why is this 13 should be at least number five - bjinmaro64
Beats the Hell out of Kansas! At least you can go outside.V 3 Comments
This should be in the top five. We have had some of the worst tornadoes in US history and we can have bad hurricanes.
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.
Alabama has some of the worst weather in the country!
Yes number 2 -8 at leastV 1 Comment
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
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
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
8 month of winter the other 4 mouth of poor sledding enough with the snow
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.
The humidity is horrible! No snow, tons of floods, and just overall bad weather
It could've been #1 in 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina
Hurricanes, floods, inconsistent weather.
Floods tornadoes and hurricanes b
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.
Funny how a lot of people visit but no one ever stays
Windy all the time never a moment of peace
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.
Bernie sanders doesn't mind the winters
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.
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
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!
Rains like crazy during summer
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!
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.
Actually, weather in North Dakota is windier and colder than South Dakota in the winter...
In South Dakota the winters are either -20 or 45. in the spring is when we get tons of snow.in the summer we get strong thunder storm heavy hail like golf ball high dry heat. in the fall during the day it is 80 at night it get to 45.
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)...
It rained when I went to Vegas in 2015. I honestly was not expecting that. I really enjoyed it. It gave me a break from the heat.
Love Nevada but the wind storms in the spring suck
Where's the rainfall. it receives the lowest average rainfall
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.
Armpit of the nation. Hot and humid as hell all the time. No one wants to be there.
It is so rainy there
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!
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).
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
People kill themselves because it's so depressing. Move out now!
Kentucky has always changing weather! Some days, you think you'll die of heat stroke, and the next day, it freezes your butt off!
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.
Very hot and wet in the summer and tornados and thunderstorms most of the spring and summer - qwhx
Hot and rainy springs and summers and sometimes really cold winters.
Like Maryland, but hotter and more humid. In northern Virginia it’s snow in the winter, and come summer 90+ average with very high humidity. Unpredictable as well.
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.
Have been to Cali several times. Wonderful place for weather. Now, they do get what's referred to as "June gloom", but hey, I'd rather live in Cali, than anywhere else! I don't have time to check out the rest of our planet. I'll just go where I know has the best weather.
Best weather in the country, warm and dry and no bugs
Los Angeles is too hot and in San Francisco you can't get even in the water because it's freezing.
