When we had to develop a criteria for weather, I was guided by the fact that no one has ever written to me and asked for cool, rainy, cloudy, or sticky weather for a wedding day. So, the criteria we used was the % of sunshine, warmth, low humidity and number of rainy days. So, this resulted in many of the “best” cities located in Arizona , Nevada and Texas. That said, if you look at the cities and states with the greatest population growth, you will find them to be in the same places where this writer says people hate the weather.
It may be time to re-evaluate our list of best and worst weather cities. That said, if you were evaluating weather, what are the things that should be included. Is it rain vs sun, humidity levels, cloudiness, other? Whatever it is, it has to be measureable across cities?? I’d enjoy getting your input.
