Exclamation Mild Winter states....not dry

Any ideas I am exhausting this website and others trying to find a place to relocate...I need a place with milder to possibly no winters ( prefer something I guess but not a big snow person) Dry NYC winters killing me. I fair better when its above 40 in the winter. Lets answer this and then I can get into employment and schools and the arts cost of living etc.


thank you

Pacific northwest.

Mild winters and DEFINITELY not "dry" Not much actual snow unless you get off the coast and into the mountains.

Tradeoff is a) it's pretty damn dark for most of fall/winter and b) you might go from complaining about "too dry" to "too wet."

Summers nice; moderate temps with little humidity

Employment opportunities pretty decent

Schools variable, just like everywhere else

Good arts communities, esp in Seattle and Portland areas

Cost of living high, for the most part, especially housing, but heck . . . if you're in NYC now it can only get better compared to there . . .

Southern Florida would be the place for you it seems. Its not overly dry (ie Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico) in winter, but juuuuust right. Not too humid, not too dry, not too cold, not too warm. Summers are hot and very humid though, but if you dislike dry, Florida is your dream-come-true. Winters in south Florida are the best in the nation, check it out.

PNW temps will drop below 40 degrees in winter- although in Seattle they hover around 40 (colder at night). In fact, the standard forecast for winter is "42 and raining "

PNW might be the place for you!

And your highs are Miami's lows. Are we to be impressed or something?

When I was in Manhattan a couple of years ago for new years, it was 25 degrees with a strong wind, making it feel like the arctic. And Miami does not have mild winters....80 degrees is pretty extreme, but in the opposite direction. 80 degrees in January is just wrong.

NYCs winters are not that horrible. They get dumped on with snow from time to time pretty good, but overall its not that bad. There have been many times Ive seen NYC temps higher than those in warmer climates, breaks things up pretty good. And while I agree that 80 degrees in January is weird, you have to remember that Miami is tropical, so thats completely normal.
