75-85 degree weather from July through September, with low humidity. Why bring winter into this question? It wasn't part of the O.P.
Yes the question was for summer, now tell me how summer is the best in Seattle when you only get 65 days of sun? I call BS on day by day sunshine every single day over summer. For Seattle that's IMPOSSIBLE!

"The coldest winter I've ever spent, was a summer in San Francisco..." Anyone know who said that?

I gotta add about LA, is Summer doesn't really "start" until July and goes until September. May and June are great with the June Gloom and the cool breeze But yeah, LA has seasons. LA can get quite dreary in the winter. The thing is though, the weather in California is very volitile. Meaning it's either feast or famine. For about 3 or 4 years in a row it will be dry, sunny and hot damn near all year long. Then, for about 2-3 years winters will be rainy as hell and summers won't be so hot. That cycle repeats itself over and over and over and over...

Well, it's impossible in almost every other city during the summer. Seattle has more clear days from July through September than most. Yes, there are a few cloudy days during the summer, but not anymore than most North American cities during this period.

It is true, I spent a couple of days in SF in August and it never got over 60 degrees. But it is still a fantastic city.

First you said 50 days. Now it's 65. What happened?

Anyone who has actually spent time in Seattle knows that many of the days listed as "overcast" are not. Certainly it's fair to say late fall, winter and early spring are grey. But to suggest summer is something less that amazing is disingenuous.

You're arguing with yourself. No one suggested this.

Listen up old man and listen good. I did say 50 days and then I also happened to say 65 days and this is what those numbers mean. Notice when I said 50 days of sun, I was implying 50 days straight consistently. The real total of sunshine in the year is 65 days, so you have your 15 days extra. Hell to be generous lets just go ahead and give gloomy depressing Seattle an encore of 80 days!! So that's 285 days of limited sun. LOL

What happened TC, what made you move from Seattle to Bellingham?
