Ha ha.

"Best weather" is quite subjective but my personal definition of the term means : four distinct seasons, not too sunny, cool summer, ample precipitation/not dry.

1. Cleveland-Snowbelt city, mild summers, generally overcast or partly cloudy, definitely has 4 seasons
2. Grand Rapids, MI-Crazy weather (lake effect) which is very changeable, moderate temperatures, and has a long Fall.
3. Minneapolis, MN-Mild summers and snowy winters.

What do you mean by "freezing summer"? I don't think any cities in the Midwest have really cold summers. Even Minneapolis gets hot as heck during the summer lol. We were basically 100 today.

I think Omaha is in the sweet spot here..

Although after the past few days including tomorrow and the upcoming week, you could call it the "sweat spot"..

Peace...

I would read "best" as shortest/most tolerable winters which in my opinion points toward Cincinnati or Louisville.

Probably Ciny, but even it doesn't have the best weather. Climate is not the Midwest strong suite.

Marquette, MI has the best climate and geographical location in the Midwest on the shores of Lake Superior. It has four distinct seasons, a mild spring, summer, and fall with a snowy winter.
