Most of the time in NY when it rains it usually for days straight, cold, and no sun shine. Most of the time when it rains in FL its for like an hour and it goes back to being sunny.

That is very untrue, most of the time when it rains it will either be a thunderstorm/rain band, rain for a portion of the day, or a cloudy rainy day. I don't ever recall it raining for days straight being cold with no sunshine.

That's how NY is depicted in movies like its London or Seattle and that bothers me for some reason.

Where in New Mexico? ...or does the quality of light automatically change once you cross into one of the states bordering New Mexico?

I didn't even experience that kind of weather in London, much less in New York. I've never found either place to be gray and gloomy for days at a time. But what he said IS true about Florida...I have never experienced a full day of rain or clouds anywhere in Florida. You can be on the beach in the morning, have to go in for an hour because of a thunderstorm, and be back out on the beach by noon for the rest of the day.

Nope, it wasn't constant rain like everyday, it was cool and cloudy MOST of the time and even that was very unusual weather (kinda like snow in Florida lol).

It is true about Florida (except during Hurricanes/Tropical Storms), I thought London was very cloudy/rainy though, I thought it was similar to the Northern UK/Ireland.

Partly cloudy days are going to include just about every summer day in Florida when we get the afternoon thunderstorms for an hour.

Or a day like today when there is a cloud here and there but the sun is shinging bright.

Rainy days the same thing, the regular afternoon thunderstorm that lasts an hour in the summer is counted as a rainy day.

The numbers don't begin to tell the whole story.

I am trying to figure out the point of this thread. Their climates are not similar - except maybe in the summer, when the whole country has hot weather. Maybe it's me, but why would anyone compare these two different climates?
