Tucson is 1,500ft higher in elevation than us, so they are 5-10 degrees cooler than us in the summer, but are about the same in the winter. Only thing that is a drawback is the job market. Most jobs in Tucson are low paying

Try Lake Tahoe it is affordable, in between California and Nevada. It stays pretty dry and temperate cause you are near a lake.

Check out Yubba City near Sacramento, I never been there before but it's affordable, diverse and the schools look somewhat decent, you are about 45 minute commute to Sacramento.

Try western Colorado or even eastern Colorado. Just avoid the middle where all the tall mountains are.

Snows in winter but not buried in it for months on end. Usually melts off in a day or two. A few days below freezing but usually in the high 30 and 40's. The east gets more crazy weather, more hail and blizzards, the west is more mild. Summer's are hot but not sweltering and nights cool down a lot. The lower flatland elevations are around 5,000 feet.
