For the Texas cities you mention, five months of heat and humidity are guaranteed (not eight). May through September. In some years, though, summer begins in mid to late April and ends in early to mid October. in the last decade, we've seen summer getting longer and longer, so at some point I think eight months of summer in these Texas cities will be guaranteed. A lot of people move down here from the north because they want the heat. Ironically, many of us who have been here all our lives can't stand the heat. We celebrate when the first cool front comes through in the fall (that happened today; it was a fantastic day).

I'd say STL and KC...hot and humid summers with cold winters where ice is more common than snow. On bestplaces.net they have a comfort index 10 points below the average (34 v. 44). There are places with a lower comfort index, but I still think both of these Missouri cities (and Kansas for the other KC) have the worth weather. They straddle a line where the heat from the south clips them and in the winter the same thing happens with the cold from the north.

Not really, but weather plays a MAJOR factor in terms of where I want to live.

Seattle for its overly cloudy winter months. Phoenix, Las Vegas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, South Florida for miserable summer weather. San Francisco for never actually seeing true summer or true winter weather. Just kinda stuck in between most days and filled with fog very often.

I love Chicago, NYC, and Philly as cities. They're my three favorite cities in the country as cities, but they have horrible weather also. Nearly all summer long, Philly was hotter than many places in the south. Taking the subway in NYC during a heatwave when the heat index is 110* is possibly one of the worst experiences anyone can ever go through in their life. Philly gets hotter, but at least the subway platforms aren't as hot. Chicago winters are brutal, but worth it for living in such a beautiful city. I wouldn't deal with that weather to live in a city like Fargo or something (no offense to Fargo).

LOL, like Boston is that much better. For comparison purposes:

Climate Chicago - Illinois and Weather averages Chicago

Climate Boston - Massachusetts and Weather averages Boston
