I would consider that an ideal climate, not a "worst" one.

I know this may be hard to believe, but Summers can get pretty hot and humid in the Poconos in Pennsylvania and then of course you have the long grey gloomy snowy Winters.
There's really not that many sunny days here. In fact, when the weatherman says it's going to be partly sunny, really what he means is a lighter shade of grey.

Only people from the Pacific Northwest and Upstate NY can ***** about gloomy weather. They really know what it's like to live in it.

It's on another level than what Chicago, or the Eastern seaboard ***** about.

Ummm no, Detroit has a rather pleasant climate in zone 6b it's actually similar to Tennessee's climate and the same as Boston's, you get the normal seasonal climate. Hardly bad at all, spring is absolutely stunning in the city.

Worst climate by far is in the PNW and Minnesota.

I think upstate cities in New York--particularly Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Utica-- have the worst climates. Mostly because of the long snowy winters and bleak springs. Syracuse has one of the highest snowfall totals of any city in North America.

But summers aren't too bad. Somewhat cloudy, occasional humidity, and thunderstorms. But quite tolerable.

I'd say Oklahoma City, just because an F5 comes roaring through there every couple of years.

I've lived in Cleveland and Chicago, as long as Mpls, and I didn't find the climates to be ideal in either of those places to Mpls. Mpls is colder in the winter, yes, but it's also drier and sunnier (esp. vs. Cleveland), so it doesn't chill you to your core like wet cold air can. Also, the ice and snow make winter more resourceful where it's prevalent. However, I agree that Detroit's climate is surprisingly mild in comparison. I think Mpls' latest climate zone/plant hardiness rating is like 5b or 5c. Summers in all 3 cites (4, incl. Detroit, are almost identical, though Chicago can/does get worse heat waves).
