With urban heat index numbers they can be brutal. Winters are not really mild in my opinion either in DC either like just 3 or 4 hours further south, winter can be miserable in DC at times. Snow averages arent high but arent that far off from parts of the midwest like kansas city or st louis. we got hammered last year with 24 inches . DC ,Philly,Baltimore and NYC really gets the worst of both worlds at time, surprisingly hot and humid summers and cold dead winters

NYC may not be the worst, but it is definitely up there. All Northeast cities are.

But I'm going to go with Minneapolis or Milwaukee or something around there, because of their even more extreme winters.

I always found the weather just east of Cleveland to be horrible, especially in the Winter. The area is called the "Snowbelt" due to significant Lake Effect Snow Storms that can easily dump 12-20"+ snow in a single storm. On top of that it is very cloudy and gray most days during Fall, Winter and Spring. Gets depressing after a while. One of the reasons I moved. Some people love the Cool, mild Summers, but I found that to be bad as well because you would usually need to pack a sweatshirt in the middle of July for cool evenings. No thanks!

You're always on the money gladhands. NYC's weather is probably not even that bad compared to other northeast cities, but it's the way that you're forced to experience it that's killer. The hot sweaty subway experience, the stinking streets caused by the smell of hot trash wafting through the air, or by contrast in the winter when you have to step through big nasty puddles and snow turns to brown mush that you have to get around. Like you said though...people don't move here for the weather.

Nice to see this acknowledged given all the NYC-jerking that goes on in these forums.

My guess is a Mid West city takes this one, but I can only speak from my personal experience, which is basically living in NYC and LA.

3 months of winter........9 months of the best weather in the USA.

And that 3 months of winter (June, July & August ) comprises of pool parties, gigantic waterparks, tubing down rivers, fishing, beautiful women dressed for the weather.....and when the sun goes down, sitting poolside with your beverage of choice with no bugs.
And that's WINTERTIME. Imagine what the next 9 months going to be like.9 MONTHS.

Now you know why everyone and their uncle is moving to Arizona.

I'm so confused right now. I think we live in alternative universes. The winter I know in the United States occurs December, January and February. Summer is usually June, July, and August in my world. What world do you live in?

In cold weather climates wintertime is synonymous with your harshest weather conditions.
In the desert our harshest weather conditions occur in June, July and August.
Hense in Arizona our wintertime is exactly the opposite of cold weather climates.
Once the rest of the country figured that out , Phoenix has to the sixth largest ( Soon to be 5th ) city in these United Sates of Amaaaica...

Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Miami, Tampa, and New Orleans. All far too hot with a latitude that is far too low, resulting in a brutal sun angle with a harshness that never goes away. No thanks..
