Dry, hot weather is unbearable to me. What is worse, however, is hot and humid weather (I'm looking at you, Houston).

I truly love love LOVE PNW's weather compared to the Southwest.

It's really not that windy in Chicago, that's not where the nickname comes from. New York, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, etc. They all have higher average wind speeds......

Most of the windiest are located in the Northeast and Colorado, then around Texas and Okalahoma. Some Great Plains cities start to come towards the bottom of the top 100 windiest, but Chicago isn't captured in the top 100.

Miami is a self selecting city. Most people who move here desire no seasons and constant warmth. There are few exceptions, but Miami is one of those few 'weather cities' in the usa where people come just for the weather.

I wouldn't say the heat/humidity is bad, just constant. It's not something that ever goes away. However, right now it has rained the entire day and is still raining. 77F and 86% humidity, all my windows in my house are open and I'm actually a bit cold. And it's late April. Forecast for tonight is for it drop to 74, which is definitely not warm.

Cities like Kansas City, St. Louis, and Boston have four distinct and even seasons. Even Albuquerque has more variety in climate than Atlanta.
You have no idea what your talking about. Atlanta is only hot and humid from June through September and even then there are quite a few balmy days in between. Atlanta has plenty of variety in weather and is downright unpredictable more often than not. Boston can have that crappy snowy winter weather. If you enjoy shoveling snow more power to you.

Dewpoint hit 77F today there. I'm a humidity lover and even to me that's nuts for April.

Considering I live in suburban Birmingham (whose climate is not appreciably different than Atlanta's), I think I do have an idea of what I'm talking about. I've lived in many different parts of the country (including Alaska) and while Atlanta and the surrounding region do have definite summers (most always long) and winters (long but mild), it lacks an appreciable spring and fall. They both rarely exceed a few short weeks.

How is April hot? The 10 day forecast looks comfortable to chilly to me. Which is spring weather.

Since when was 70 degrees chilly? That's pretty doggone warm.

Chilly is 40s and 50s. You can hit the pool in the lower 70s.
