Twin Cities. The weather here blows much of the year (no pun intended)

Oakland? What? San Diego, Los Angeles, or if you're a 4 seasons guy like me (Denver or NYC).

I love the varying climates of the Great Plains. It can go from cold to mild in the winter, and mild to hot (mainly mild, but a hot period for a few weeks) - in the summer. It also will get some humidity (not like the south) and then times where it is as dry as a desert.

Definetely four seasons, with summer and fall dominating more than the other two. (I remember a few exceptions where a winter or summer would be extended, but has only happened a few times in my many years here).

Precipitation doesn't happen a lot, but it comes down in loads at a time. The Great Plains are a (meteorologists) or a weather-watcher's paradise.

Best ... tough call between Seattle, Buffalo NY, Duluth MN, and many other places in the Pacific Northwest and bordering the Great Lakes. Southeast Alaska is pretty nice too.

Worst ... probably somewhere in California, Arizona, or the west side of the Hawaiian islands. Possibly Florida. All of these places are fairly miserable.

Based on experience of traveling to all 50 states.

I live in Seattle, and I would have to say that people would be shocked in the winter. Summers here are terrible, so if one visits that time of year, they would see what all the talk is about Seattle having the worst weather. From November through February, though, the weather is pretty nice around here. Not enough snow though.

Here in KC, you get absolutely everything. sometimes you got super cold winters, and sometimes pretty warm winters. Some really hot summers and some cooler summers (rare) i dont mind it here too much though, you get used to it. Worst weather is probably up north where its really cold and they get lots of snow. or south where its really hot and HUMID

Best - San Francisco, and to a lesser extent Seattle/Portland.

Worst - Miami, Phoenix, New Orleans, Houston. Basically a majority of the cities in the south.

The central plains states of Kansas and Nebraska for the most part are restrained from the long, brutal winters or summers. We get a little of both on average every year, but for the most part are within the 40-85 degree highs for the most part of the year.

There are years where a brutal winter settles in (winter of 2010) or a brutal summar (one summer in the late 1990s).
