True....for winter....summer ...the list is smaller. Can't beat SoCal for year round good weather.
Lower elevation SW deserts are like oven in summer.

I'd rather live in Chicago then Phoenix.

I don't consider that to be "bad" weather.

I don't consider a winter that feels like a slightly cooler version of spring to be "decent winter weather."

"Worst weather" is totally subjective. There's no way to give an answer for the unanswerable.

Well I already know Upstate NY has the worst winters, because we average about 2 or 3 days of sun a month and over 110" of snow and bitter cold.

Upstate NY also is gloomy in springtime as well.

This is our forecast. From today til May 15th, rain. We basically go from being Siberia to Seattle.

There area only three months of good weather in Upstate NY. Seriously. No exaggeration. Gloomy as ****ing hell here. So incredibly depressing.

Never move to Upstate NY.

Its a mild-ish winter, hardly what I call good. They still get snow (especially North Carolina), and occasional ice storms. Then you have the hellish humid summers with potential for hurricanes, and far too much rain for my tastes. The South = Hell to me.

Different strokes for different blokes.

Well, I'm talking about winter, so complaints about summer, hurricanes, rain, etc (largely beneficial, all things considered) go out the window. And the Coastal South is a large region; sure, places like NC are colder in winter, but then the region includes warm areas like peninsular Florida, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Glad you included the hot with the cold here. As a MPLS booster I'd agree. Although I'd prefer the cold to the hot.

Any state that has extremes for long periods of time.

Minneapolis might suck for some people because of the brutally cold winters for almost half the year. But Texas might suck for others because of the scorching hot summers for half the year.

The best climate for me? Probably a place like Maryland. You get 4 distinct seasons with weather that's never to extreme in any season.
