It actually does get heatwaves 2-3 times every summer, and people enjoy it!
Heatwaves in Sweden means temperature of 77 F/25 C or above for 3 days in a row, and is not same as the U.S.
Stockholm and Sweden usually has heatwaves with Very warm & sunny weather for 2 week a row. But it's not that hot, and it's not humid, so it's comfortable!

Seattle has 58 sunny days every year, and definetely NOT close to 71. LOL that's your dream!
Seattle is famous for its rain, clouds, grey and gay weather
wrong data. It is actually 71 on average. And a lot of those 93 partly cloudy are ALMOST CLEAR but not completely and they cannot be considered clear, but the sun SHINES.

Fine if you count Partly Cloudy as Sunny, Seattle has still more cloudy days than Sunshine.
Yes, the data is wrong, Seattle has 57 sunny days, not 71

the data is OLD. You don't live in Seattle and you can't tell me what is wrong and what is right. That's a fact. Seattle has warmer summer, much warmer fall, warmer spring and much warmer winter
Average high - Seattle 59F (15C), Stockholm 49F (9C)
Average low - Seattle 46F (8C), Stockholm 36F (2C)
Highest recorded - Seattle 100F (38C), Stockholm 95F (35C)
Lowest recorded - Seattle 0F (-18C) , Stockholm -17F (-27C)
Days below 32F/0C - Seattle 20, Stockholm 151

I didn't say Stockholm is warmer than Seattle, but Stockholm is sunnier and has less rain & clouds than crap Seattle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SEATTLE IS KNOW AS RAINY, GREY, GAYISH, CLOUDY CITY, NOT STOCKHOLM!
Highest recorded temperature in Stockholm is 36 C, not 35.

Overall, I don't live in Stockholm anymore, I live in New Jersey and NJ has much warmer, much much sunnier and better weather than Seattle

Mattias is right.
I have lived in Seattle for 10 years, and the weather is cloudy and rainy almost every day. I'm surprised if we even see 57 sunny days.
Stockholm has definetly much better weather, even if it's slightly cooler. I would take Stockholms weather to Seattle at any time!
