In the winter, generally about 50 to 60 degrees for highs and lows in the 30s to 40s. Snow is okay now and then, but not the whole season.

I like it hot and I like it HOT. A touch of humidity would be nice too

My ideal weather would be between 70-90 in the summer, 50-70 in the Spring and Fall, and relatively balmy (45+) in the winter with the occasional snowfall around Christmas/New Years.

Darn straight, it's a wonder that the local weathermen actually can guess anything right!

I remember though last year it was like, 80+ one day and then 20- and snowing the next. I honestly had no idea what to think abut that.

I've actually changed my mind. I'm getting quite tired of Winter and its not even half way done. Spring needs to hurry up!

Los Angeles is looking good right now.

Much prefer cold and snowy winters. Temperatures ranging from -10 to 20 would be great along with a constant 6 inches+ of snow on the ground.

Call me crazy if you will.

I do not prefer the barbaric winds and frigid air. That is why I live in the valley. Occasionally, I will visit the Upper Midwest to enjoy the lakes, taverns, and ice fishing, though. In summary, I prefer the higher elevated hills in NH during the summer and the valley areas of NH during the winter.

50-75. Which is basically how winter is where I live

When it gets below 50, the heavy coats come on because we're wusses when it comes to cold. Today it was low 70s tshirt weather and I loved every minute of it!

On Christmas I went kayaking in the pacific ocean and it was cool, calm and clear.
