Well,

I checked the forum and there has not been a similar thread like this one. But a while back I had a general thread comparing these two cities which was closed. I like to read and study about weather patterns which is one of the reasons I started to create this thread.

So, out of these two cities, which one has better overall weather and why?

Having lived in MA I'd have to say Phoenix. The one exception would be fall, which Phoenix doesn't get.

One's downfall is extreme heat, the other is extreme cold. As others have said, it's really dependent on whether you prefer warm or cold weather.

I think that "extreme" weather exists only on the part of Arizona; Boston really doesn't have extreme cold---it's not Minneapolis.

Boston's Winter is much too long and not enough Spring around here. In recent years I've noticed the area is especially damp. The five blizzards we had last January I would call extreme. No Boston, doesn't get the raw extreme cold temperatures that the Upper Midwest gets however in recent years the area has had a very damp climate. In recent years the Southwest has had a very prolonged drought. Not much of a happy medium choice.

I would take Boston's summer over Phoenix's. Other than that, I'd prefer Phoenix. Phoenix doesn't get a true fall, but Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon are just right up I-17.
