I notice that it bothers me the most out of the people that live here. I'm freezing. I'm in Richmond. I can't STAND the weather. It's in the thirties and it's ridiculous. You can't even go outside. It's literally painful... some people have tolerance for it but I don't. I want warmth and sunshine again. I'm 19.

Why would anyone want to live in a climate like this? I can't believe people live up in Pennsylvania, New York, New England, mid-west, Minnesota, Canada.......... I want warm, warm, warm, year round. The cold air burns your face and makes your nose red. It's miserable... why would anyone want to put up with this?

absolutely nothing below 50 degrees!

Because its awesome! To me, its boring when its the same thing all year round.

Perhaps you should look into San Diego, LA, Phoenix... it doesn't get as cold as VA and the other northern states.

Except for the Mexican Cartels, you might try southern Texas... Like Brownsville....

You think 30 is bad? Try Minneapolis, some winters people are in shorts when it gets above 30.

Nice thread; is it really so difficult to log onto weather.com or pick up a map and see which states are closest to the equator?

Maybe Cairo Egypt or somewhere along the Mediterranean in North Africa
I would suggest SoCal, usually stays around the upper 60's in the winter. The way the fronts move, Florida isn't immune to sub-freezing temperatures with the exception maybe of extreme southern Florida (Miami and the keys, key west is the only area in the continental US that has never experienced frost, there you are actually closer to Havana Cuba than you are to Miami ironically.) Back on topic, Southern California is positioned where cold fronts nearly never get that far south on the west coast causing comfortable temps year round.

Lol, we have people like that in Ohio too; high of 40 F and wearing shorts and sandals with just a jacket on . I guess some people just don't like wearing pants .

Basically you should look at cities around or south of i-10. They will generally have a high of 60 or above on average in the winter. Then, depending on how you like your summer, CA will be milder, while AZ, TX, FL are generally hotter.

Major cities to choose from west to east would be:
Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Tuscon, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Miami... then of course you have your smaller cities.

I would avoid far west Texas around El Paso and New Mexico though, as it can drop pretty cold there...anywhere else along the i-10 corridor, or farther south is game.
