Barrow is too cold. There's a major difference between 25 F and say, -30 F.

Summers are nice though. Average high in the 40s.

Sounds miserable. I tried biking when it was lightly snowing and it turned to sleet. It was horrible. I had to stop. My face would sting if I moved. Oww.

That combination can produce black ice. Enjoy slipping on your walk home!

I think the Aleutians might be a better match. Southeast Alaska could work if you can tolerate 60+ summer highs.

I'll take some black ice over eternal drought conditions.

Yeah I wouldn't mind the Aleutians. My climatic preferences also match well with Ketchikan, AK (in SE AK).

Really? I'm surprised there are so many people here with a preference for hypothermia-inducing weather!

How is 18F, dry, sunny with calm conditions "hypothermia-inducing weather"?

As long as you have a nice warm jacket, some gloves and a hat you're fine. 18F is not even that extreme.

18 F is lower than the record low for my city!

Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't need to be dressed for the antarctic in order to be comfortable (or just to survive)? Unless you think that sort of clothing is a good look for you, I guess.

It's interesting that most people here tend to have extreme tastes (either very hot or very cold) without much of a middle ground.

96 F/36 C isn't very hot to me...
I've done constructions work at a site around Toronto, sunrise-to-sunset at a site that had zero shade and 36 C and I was fine.
Only time it's risky is being dehydrated, and my iced-drink preference would make that comfy.

If I wanted very-hot, I would have said 103-109 F (39-43 C)
96F/36 C is just "modertate-yet-distinctly-hot."

I suspect deneb78's preference is hotter than mine, plugged into a heat index calculator.
