I don't think Greenville's winter weather is similar to Denton's winter weather. It near the Blue Ridge mountains, 966 feet above sea level.

Ok, I did not post on here to compare the climates of Dallas vs Greenville. I was only suggesting Greenville for consideration. It is obviously not going to be as cold and snowy as places up north.

Greenville has more snow and winter precipitation than Dallas. I note that you didn't point that out during your verification.

The OP said he's not looking for a ton of snow. Here is the first part of his last post: 'I don't necessarily want more snow; I just like a nice snow storm during the winter.'

Greenville does in fact have 4 seasons.

If there isn't snow in the Greenville metro, a resident can ride over to the nearby Blue Ridge mountains and probably find some most days in the winter.

Greenville has 4-6 more days below 32 degrees F during each winter month than Dallas. https://outflux.net/weather/noaa/ind...66%3BFORID%3A9

Since I live here - Boston, MA. (well, 20 miles south).

Within 1.5 hours are many skiing areas in NH, VT, MA, skating, and many winter activities. We get our share of snow, and on occasion have had a lot. Of course plenty of beaches. Fall foliage is beautiful, as is the spring bloom. Summers can be hot, and winters cold. And someone alluded to sports - don't need to say much about the pro teams here as they've had quite a successful run recently. Boston itself is steeped in history. You can go from city to rural in 1/2 hour. Shopping, restaurants, etc. Cape Cod, Maine shoreline, quaint New England towns all close by.

In short, plenty to do all four seasons.

OP asked for at least a month of snow. Also I am in Denton, not Dallas. Weather is similar but we're slightly colder. Average low in January is only 33. Snowfall varies year to year but never lasts a month. A week at most.

Greenville, SC - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenv...South_Carolina

Basically Greenville is 2 degrees colder in January.

Their climates are very similar.

I just quoted what he said in his last post. He said 'a snowstorm'.

Let me post it again: 'I don't necessarily want more snow; I just like a nice snow storm during the winter.'

Greenville usually has at least 2 or 3 snowfalls each winter. I suspect it has a lot more ice during the winter as well than Denton.

As I posted in previous post, Greenville has more days below 32 deg F. Greenville has 4-6 more days below 32 deg F each winter month. It also gets more snow and more overall winter precipitation.

Greenville is colder. https://outflux.net/weather/noaa/ind...66%3BFORID%3A9

I'm simply suggesting Greenville for his consideration. He can look at the climate data and decide for himself if it works for him. Greenville is near the Blue Ridge mountains so if a person wants to see snow in the winter, he can easily ride into the mountains and find some.

Denton isn't far from Dallas. Greenville in general is nothing like Texas.

DFW averages about the same amount of snow in the winter. The past few winters have been busts but before that..

Neither places are snowy. They have some snow each year usually but that's it. I get it, you live in Greenville and like it, cool. But it doesn't fit into the classifications. Even within the South I'd pick places in Tennessee and North Carolina before anywhere in South Carolina.

He said he wants snowstorms but he also said at least a month of snow. Nowhere in the South does snow last for a month, except maybe Kentucky and Virginia. Also way up in the mountains, but that's it. Average winter temps in Greenville aren't cold enough to sustain snow for long.

Both cities have average highs in the 50s and average lows in the 30s in winter. Stop acting like they're so much different! If you can claim Greenville then I can claim Denton lol but I wouldn't. It's winters are too brown and balmy.

You keep ignoring his 2nd post. I've quoted from it twice now. 'A snowstorm'.

Here is another website comparing the two.

Moderator cut: Link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed

Snowfall (in.) Denton 0.512977 Greenville 2.70855

Precipitation Days Denton 52.3636 Greenville 76.5429

Oh yeah, those two climates are 'exactly' alike. There is no way a city in Texas has a climate 'exactly' like a city at the base of the Blue Ridge mountains and 1.5 hours south of Asheville NC. As I've pointed out previously, Greenville gets a good bit of ice in the winter too. I believe it much more wintery in Greenville than Denton Texas.

You act like I'm trying to trick the OP into moving here. He is capable of looking at the climate data himself. I simply made a suggestion of Greenville for consideration. I don't agree with your assertion that the winter here is like 3 months of November. It is a 4 season climate. It is obviously less cold and snow here than places up north.

Why don't you make your own suggestions rather than seek to debate other people's suggestion.

I prefer warmer winters and less snow as possible so your premise that I'm being misleading and making out Greenville as colder and more snowy than it is because I like Greenville could not be more off base.

Oh brother.

The reason it snows more in Greenville is cuz its in the east. Denton is more centralised in a part of the country that gets less precipitation. Neither climate is that cold in the winter. The main differences is we get our cold fronts from the Midwest, and they tend to bring less precipitation, and y'all get them from the Northeast. Otherwise, both places are generally snowless with leaves on the ground and bare trees and a couple of pines and other evergreens. Ergo; looks like November up north does, for 3 months.

If you wanna suggest Greenville go ahead. I mean, its a better suggestion than Houston, Savannah and definitely Miami lol but..

By the way, it gets pretty cold here. We had two main cold blasts with lows in the teens and highs below freezing. One in December which was snowless but icy and one in January with some snow on the ground. We get about the same amount of frosty mornings as you guys do.

OP was answering a poster's question. There is a difference between living in a Snow Belt city (high annual snow dumps) and living in a city with a "legitimate winter". The south doesn't really has that "legitimate winter" that people think of, even in the mountains, it's pretty mild in comparison. I live in TN, high up on a plateau the last 5ish years, we really never had snow for more than 3 days. It melts pretty quickly. Thankfully so because the cities down here aren't really equipped to deal with winter conditions like that. I mean, people in my area actually get real nervous at flurries.
