it's not rainy 75% of the year. It's actually rainy 10% of the total annual hours.

And, if I'm not mistaken, isn't it completely dry and sunny in Seattle all summer?

It thickens with altitude.

Isn't that called "How to lie with statistics"?

it's very dry probably 99% of the summer. Everything turns yellow by the end of the summer.

Seattle is dry usually from July 5th through the day before Labor Day. This is how God arranged it. However, within this period there can be a a day of rain, oh my! Bottom line, if you want a sunny/warm vacation in Seattle you will do well within this period. However, much to the dismay and error of many, Seattle can offer warm sunny periods from April through October, the only problem is the odds go down during this period. Enjoy and expect anything!

September is almost as dry as August. I would say that it's dry until mid or late September depending on the year.

Agree with them all. However, I would like to add Orlando to the list!

My top-four worst and similar cities:

1. Chicago- Many extended periods of nice weather are negated for me by extremes on both ends of hot and cold with nasty humidity exacerbating both. Most of the Great Lakes cities seem to feature similar weather.

2. Dallas-Way too hot in summer and too cold in winter. Also stormy with frequent damaging winds and hail. I witnessed a massive plague of crickets there, a couple of tornadoes, ice storms, mud raining from the sky, a high of over 115 degrees air temperature and a low below 10 degrees in one 12-month period. Oklahoma City, San Antonio and Austin are similar.

3. Houston- Similar to Dallas, but without as extreme hot and cold. However, the more intense humidity pushes the temps into the same extreme ranges in terms of how miserable it feels. Houston floods and is prone to frequent storms. The humidity makes it the worst breeding ground for mosquitoes and roaches. It also doesn't cool off at night in summertime, with humid, sweaty, sticky nights. New Orleans and Orlando are similar.

4. Phoenix-Brutally hot and dry...it's a desert! I love the setting, but the heat would drive me crazy. Tucson and Las Vegas are similar.

Fairbanks Alaska- Subzero Temps
Palm Springs /the Coachella Valley California - its ok during the winter , but without modern technology of air conditioning its practically unlivable thats why the US Government gave so much of the land out there to Native American Tribes in the first place.. Palm Springs is an artificial oasis in the desert. Without human intervention its a desert wasteland with no water except for a few springs..
Phoenix Arizona- Same as above.
