Anywhere in the southern 3/4 of the US. Too far south in latitude, sun angle too intense, and too much heat or humidity.

Minneapolis is fairly mild with seasonal average snowfall totals barely above 50 inches most winters. Minneapolis Spring, Summer, and Fall are also much better than most of the US with very mild temperatures.

Says someone who has never been to Syracuse or Buffalo.

Does Minneapolis average 120" of snowfall? No. It barely gets half that amount.

Get out more.

Philadelphia: 15%
DC: 17%

Those stats don't show how muggy it gets, it shows how long it's muggy.

They are mild to me, as I've spent extensive amounts of time in the UP of Michigan and far northern Wisconsin. Those climates are cold compared to Mpls with much more snowfall. I like snowy and colder climates. Much of the US is far too warm for much of the year.

Rochester doesn't get as muck lake effect as it's peers.
