I was wondering if anyone can think of a place in the northern latitudes with a climate that would be good for someone wanting to generally avoid weather below 56 F.

What I mean is that weather under 56 F is generally uncommon and easily avoided by staying indoors for short periods with it warming up later.

If such a place exists, it is not in southern Ontario or anywhere near the Great Lakes.

Does anyone think that weather below 56 F being uncommon in a northern latitude climate is contradictory, even when considering mild climates like the Pacific Northwest?

I think you need to look at the Pacific Northwest.....but I have also heard that Missoula, Montana or it may be Bozeman...you would have to look it up...have generally mild winters considering the latitidue. It sounds very nice...but still quite snowy.

The Pacific Northwest does get snow, and is pretty wet in general -- so even though the temps aren't generally bone chilling, the wetness might make it feel worse.

Avoiding below 56 and being up north IS rather contradictory. However, not impossible. You'll probably be somewhere out west though, since anywhere northern in the east/midwest will go below 56 easily.

Default Why don't you just go to Vancouver???

If I wanted to live in Canada it would have to be in Vancouver.

I don't know what the extremes are but I have been there in winter and it was not bad. Light jacket if I remember.

The rest of Canada forget it, snowbird would be the best I could manage. Even the Maritimes where cold in July.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

Vancouver would be an improvement, but what I was hoping for would be where summers aren't normally below 56 F at the coolest time of day, like at sunrise. I'm not sure if Vancouver is that mild, but I hear there afternoons are often much cooler than Toronto, and even we normally get a few summer sunrises in the high 40's.

Does anyone know if places like Portland, Seattle or Vancouver get mornings below 56 F in summer usually? (just for grins )

No they don't during summer. 56 degrees would be the average low temperature during summer from what I found on the web.

I've been to Seattle area a few times and Portland during summer. I was never cold. Yes I can get cold pretty easy, so I would have noticed.

Other possible places to consider would be on the coast only it won't get really warm. Tempertures just stay in mid range.

Bermuda ----- 32.18 N lat


Semi-tropical and influenced by the warmth of the Gulf stream. Not much chance of below 56 there.

What about Sequim Washington, it is in the Pacific Northwest somewhere near Seattle, I'm not sure how close. Apperently it doesn't rain much there though. They are in a "rain shadow" or something like that.
