Not saying it isnt subjective but I prefer moret constant than unpredictable.
Atlanta used to be hotter when I was growing up but in the last few years the summers are relatively mild.Id say no hotter tan even NYC,
Our summers are longer though.The thunderstorms are what is needed in SF.
They also cool down the sity as they usually dont last more than a few minutes

Miami is actually hotter than Atlanta.

Even so Atlanta has almost as many more sunny days than SF

But SF has more humid days than Atlanta which I'm sure is shocking to some people

While SF is not as hot overall ihttp://www.currentresults.com/Weathe...ity-annual.phpt does get colder and I beleive that as I had witness that first hand,in the late summer months

I think for people who like more distinct seasons, they might prefer Atlanta.

Even die hard Atlantans would admit this is not a good comparison.

Atlanta should be compared with Houston/Dallas/Phoenix/Seattle/Minneapolis/Tampa/Denver/Charlotte/Portland/San Antonio/Orlando/Sacramento/Kansas City/Las Vegas/Austin/Nashville/New Orleans but not with the great San Francisco.
