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.

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.

Can't say I'm really shook to be honest. It 100 degrees everyday in the summer, and in the winter you can get frostbite in minutes. Not to mention it rains all the god damn time so the snow you were hoping to enjoy is just slush that dirties everybody's cars. Get me the hell outta here.

Lol today there was a high of 94 degrees in findlay Ohio. right next to findlay one place had a high of 79 and the other a high of 109 degrees! Now those from Arizona...it is much hotter over on the East. We have that hot sticky weather that makes u feel like u are trapped in an airless oven while all you clothes stick to your skin. Ohio is so hot in the summer time that most palm trees would thrive more in ohio than in Florida! This is due to the radiation of the sun and the absolute airless weather. In the winter we often experience temperatures as low as -6 degrees. In fall maybe a high of 65 and low of 40... spring a high of 70 and a low of 45. lol last year on February 8th (my birthday) it was 87 degrees... if you come to Ohio you are bound to experience different weather eac day

We've had snow in April and we've had 21 tornadoes sweep across Dayton. Also, it's always storming in the summer, good luck going to the pool! In all the other seasons, it goes from 40 to 60 to 30 to 80 to 20. In winter, it's too cold to shovel snow or have fun in the snow. What can get worse?

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.

The Day high will be 59 F and raining, by the next morning It will be 17 F and snowing.. pretty drastic for not having mountainous terrain.

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!

Often five to ten degrees below zero in the winter and well near or above one hundred in the summer.. not to mention the storms of all varieties - the only things we're missing are hurricanes and earthquakes

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

Oh god.. I've lived here my entire life and I have two wardrobes, one for winter (Where is FREEZING) and one for summer (WAYYYY TO HOT) We also just randomly have thunderstorms sometimes and like god... did I mention we randomly have thunderstorms?

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.

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.

4 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.

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.

Its really bad here. The winters are cold and windy and the summers are hot and humid. It rains here a fair amount and we get lots of thunderstorms. We don't have a spring or a fall season for weather because it is mainly summer and winter weather. If you want nice weather don't move here.

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.

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.

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.

The weather for the most part is unpredictable and rarely what the weather people say. Hard to “ plan ahead” for outdoor activities.

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.

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.

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

There is a reason this state has the highest concentration of pilots.

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

7 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.

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.

In NJ they say, "If you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes, it will change." So true!

8 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.

Hot humid summers, freezing cold winters. Rains all spring. Better like the indoors here! (In the basement due to tornadoes! )

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.

It's really your average weather. Cold in winter, hot in summer. I don't understand why it's so high.

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

I hate the heat. I live in Connecticut and even the short, lukewarm summers are too much for me. I can't imagine how bad Texas is and how humid it is.

Houston weather sucks. Very hot and humid from June through Sept. Oct and May are ok. Nov-April is cool and damp and overcast and rain.

Tornado-filled desert. What shall I say more? It seriously is just a tornado-filled nation that gets heat that is absurd, as in like 120 Farenhieght

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.

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.

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

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.

In Jefferson City, it reaches 90 degrees in summer and it snows a lot in the winter. There is snow forecast for April 13, 2019. Severe thunderstorms can build up extreme tornadoes

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 hate the cold. I live in Tennessee, and even the short, mild winters are too much for me. I can’t imagine how bad Wisconsin would be, and to add to that how gloomy it would be.

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!

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 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 ...read more.

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.

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.

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...

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

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.

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.

16 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.

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.

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.

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.

17 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.

I don't know how MN isn't ranked in the first top five for worst weather. The summers are horribly humid, the winter is bitter cold. Spring is "mild winter" and fall is "mosquito season."

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.

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!

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

18 Michigan

I disagree. Where I live, we have nice, snowy winters with a hill for sledding nearby. The summers can be hot but also really nice.

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.

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!

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?

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.

It's the drain for all bad weather anywhere in the country. It HAS to exit through here.

20 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!

Bird crap always on your car, UV index 7+ during most of summer, humidity 75% or greater, rains every other day if not every day, average temp 85 degrees but "feels like 100." Checked CA and Nevada... According to westher channel if it says a temp then that is the actual temp. The humidity and UV index is so high the actual temp and "feels like temp" are almost always different.

21 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.

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.

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.

The temperature is pretty good, but it's super rainy.

22 Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

I hate the heat. I live in New England and even the lukewarm, short summers are too much for me. I can't imagine how bad Arizona in the summer is.

I love it here. I used to live in New Jersey, God forbid you plan an outdoor party or garage sale...it’s guarenteed to have to be rescheduled. Hence the term...rain date. In Arizona, the Phoenix area, I expect hot in the summer...no problem, AC indoors, misters outdoors, just don't stand on the pavement in the afternoon sun. And you will never hear the words...hazy, hot and humid...don't underestimate how great that is.
There is a winter but it’s mild and dry...not damp and no wind chills. I have lived here 17 years and not once have I ever complained about the weather.

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.

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?

23 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.

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

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.

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

Cold in winter, takes a while for summer to arrive
