Everyone has their different opinions about weather. Heck, I go on the Alaska board sometimes and you have people up there who love that weather.....(there's a lid for every pot I guess)

I'll repeat it again. Our summers are longer in duration because we are closer to the equator (roughly 600-700+ miles further south). If people understand how weather works in this part of the country, cool/cold fronts that drop in from Canada don't always make it this far south, so you will get more days of warmer temps and higher humidity. Its the same thing if you were to compare Charlotte with say "Savannah GA".....

2. The way you measure if somewhere is "hotter" is by the heat index (which is a COMBINATION of temps AND humidity..) Charlotte and the big cities in the I-95 corridor both get heat waves where the heat index will climb to say 105, but in the south you get this more frequently....I would argue that places like the low country down to Northern Florida compare right up there w/places like Houston as being the most unbearable places in the summer in terms of being uncomfortable..


For me, I can "take" the heat over the cold. Having lived in the Northeast, I don't like the long winters, shorter days and I've gladly accepted taking a few more 'uncomfortable' high heat index days as a trade off....for some others, that might not be the case..

Seeing the same weather pattern as last summer (LOTS of rain). I wonder if that will equal lots of snow again come winter?
