The Contenders: Page 2

21 New York New York

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 has nice, snowy winters! You experience all four seasons here.

Upstate is terrible in the winter

23 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.

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.

27 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.

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.

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

Weather chages every second. Teribble storms all year round. People are complaing about not getting enough rain, I feel like we get too much.

31 Vermont Vermont

Bernie sanders doesn't mind the winters

34 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.

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)...

38 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.
