No he doesn't, because that's ludicrous, 325 days of full cover, LOL. Don't feed the damn troll!

Pittsburgh,Pa. has 8 days per year of totally clear,no clouds, weather.
Pittsburgh Pa receives 325 days of wall to wall cloud cover-NO SUN AT ALL
Pittsburgh,Pa. experiences partly cloudy weather for remaining days.

That is sheer and utter nonsense.

It's interesting how there's no data on days with no sunlight whatsoever. The average of days with the sun shining more than half the day is 162 for Pittsburgh (59 clear, 103 p. cloudy). The time I've been living here, it felt like a lot more than that (although this year might be average or lower haha). The average of 203 cloudy days does include some sun (but how many of those days does it include?).

Reddesertfox seems to write this nonsense on days like this with there's no sun. He might sound convincing but lets be realistic. 325 days? There may very well be 325 days of actual cloud presence. But no way in hell there's 325 completely overcast days with no sun. I don't think there's a place on Earth with that!

The other day the weather guy on 4 said we've had 5 days of sunshine this year. There's us realists and then there are weathermen. If they couldn't do that they might have been a mechanic or grocery store bagger.

Look! We got some sun today! Time to pretend this has been the norm this year and completely neglect every other cloud covered day like a lunatic!

Lunatic would be a good analogy. Lunatics react to bright moons when it should really be dark at night in bipolar individuals. The lack of sunlight in the northeast this year has caused many people to act bipolar for lack of of serotonin. With today's sunny weather, people do not know how to act with this nice dose of serotonin that has been in such low supply.

I moved here February 18th, 2011. I've been here 2 and a half months basically. I have taken plenty of walks and took my son out to ride his bike more than 15 times of which all have had the sun out. Maybe not all day long, but for anywhere between 1 and 6 hours. That 325 days of pure cloudcover is bullsh&t. Point blank period.

Yep. With so much variation within days, you get used to taking the nicer weather when it comes.

I wonder if Pittsburgh has less severity of storms? As many of you know, we in the South got slammed by tornadoes which thankfully missed Atlanta. The northern Midwest gets slammed by storms too but the storms usually lose their punch by the time they reach Pittsburgh. That's not to say Pittsburgh doesn't get bad storms (everyone does) but it's worse on average elsewhere.
