The extreme heat and cold, relatively high humidity, rapid temperature and barometric pressure swings and highly volatile weather events (e.g., tornadoes, ice storms, hail) of the Great Plains makes it the most intolerable North American climate, IMO.

Honestly, most of North America doesn't have a very tolerable climate. The only good climates are in the SW US (coastal California and lower AZ), SE US (coastal South), and Hawaii. Otherwise, you have to head South of the Rio Grande; the Aztecs, Olmecs, etc had the right idea.

I can't deal with super hot weather. So if it commonly gets over 85, that's a no for me.

All of the West Coast is mild from NW Washington to SW California within a few miles of the coast.

I dislike every climate except Denver, Boise, and SLC.
I'm from California and never understood why so many people wanted to move there for the climate. I like cooler temps with seasons while having mountainous terrain. I would say Reno has a climate similar to these cities as well.

I'm in LA today, and was in San Diego a couple hrs ago, and it is gorgeous, sunny skies, dry and temps around 90 thanks to Santa Ana's

I pretty much cannot handle snow, which is unfortunate since that rules out Colorado for me

Similar for me, though I would up it to 90 if it's humid, 95 if it's not.

US climates I could not handle are lower elevation SW,
below 3000 ft.

Phoenix
Las Vegas
Palm Springs
Yuma

Tucson is borderline for me.

Also parts of Texas....

Laredo
Dallas
Houston

Panhandle is ok
West of the Pecos is dry, heat not so bad.

Louisiana
Southern Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, inland Florida,
and most of Arkansas climates are not fun either.
