Hawaii is the only state that has never reached a temperature of 100. Therefore, we may call it the coldest state using one criterion.

Now 48 degrees being cold is debatable, but Florida consistently holds higher temps in the winter time from what I've seen. Arizona shouldn't be winning it's just not correct.
Miami's coldest low temp most years is in the upper 30's to low 40's, Orlando and Tampa usually bottom out in the upper 20's to around 30 and the Panhandle usually reaches the low 20's. Note these are the typical lowest Temp of the year, not the averages

The south is not as warm as you think it is

In January of 1977 even Miami was dusted with snow with temps in the mid 20's.
Does anybody remember the Challenger explosion in 1986 ? The temps at the Cape were around 28 degrees which froze up the O-rings.
Florida gets hit with Arctic blasts that plunges the temps into the teens & twenties on occasion and can last for several days which is refreshing!
This past year has been warm with Spring like temps 10 degrees above the norm. The last time the Orlando area was under a freeze was 4 years ago.

The other states you mentioned, aside from LA, MS and FL have areas where it is cooler, due to elevation. Florida doesn't really have this, and also has the most continuous stretches of heat out of these (remember, with heat index factored in, FL cities can be just as hot feeling, if not hotter, than Phoenix, Yuma, etc. during the summer.

No Nevada, Utah, or even California?? Most know that the hottest temperatures are reached with low humidity and arid conditions.

Death Valley (California) has apparently reached 134 degrees F, so by the title of this tread, California would be the hottest state.

If you want highest "heat index", then be clear and state that instead.

Why would I have Utah? And the title is what it is. Not looking for hottest area, looking for hottest state. It's somewhat vague but there's been a solid discussion.

Utah does not belong. And most of Nevada doesn't either. Whereas, just about all of texas and Florida is toasty.

Averages for the state as a whole would be Florida, since it has the shortest winter. Hottest overall temps Arizona/Texas
