Say you had one day left to live, or that you had to experience the same weather every day of your life, or whatever; if you could chose and adjust every possible weather variable to create your absolutely perfect day, weather wise, what would that be? Totally unrealistic answers are welcome !

For me :

Sunrise : 5.00 AM

Low : 23C
High : 32C

Humidity : high most of the day, moderate when it's over 30C

Abudantly sunny, no clouds

75 sun angle at 1.45 PM

Sunset : 10.30 PM

High-65 degrees
Low-45 degrees

Some light/moderate rain during the day (no thunder storms)-humidity wouldn't be a problem at these temps.

Mostly overcast during the day, crystal clear at night.

Not sure of sun angle-whatever it is during late fall.

Sunset at 7:30 or so.

Followed by A beautiful sunset during a picnic with the love of my life (I dont have one though) And expiring under a warm night with a star studded sky, My Corona with lime in one hand, An American spirit cigarette in the other and her by my side. ( I quit a long time ago.)

Corny, I know.

6 am: 22C/72F sunrise with lenticulars and towering cumulus, then a big thunderstorm and a few rainbows. Then clearing to a 28C/84F high with 21C dewpoint, and finishing with a rainbow set against a red sky (I saw this last week).

As it is my last day there would be a plentiful supply of cold beer and thc.

Wow, that's tough considering that I like all the season. That makes me believe I should be looking at a day with four seasons in one day, though that would probably get very tiring day after day after day. But then again, so would a day after day winter, or a day after day spring, summer, or fall.

But 4 seasons in one day it will have to be I guess:

Lets say from midnight to 6am the temperatures are always near freezing, give or take a few degrees, with mixes of snow and clear sky (for star gazing!!!). 6am to noon is more spring like. Temperatures go up steadily into the 40s, then 50s, and finally 60s. Any cloud cover and snow (or more likely rain by this point) has cleared out fairly early on, and the air dries out as it warms up. Noon to 6pm has temperatures ranging from 70 to 100 degrees of dry heat and clear skies! 6pm to midnight seems fall like. Temperatures start to cool down again, steadily falling through the 60s, 50s, 40s, and finally to the 30s and 20s for the overnight hours to start it all over again.

I would miss never having a warm or even mild night, and I would also miss never having a cold day, but this seems to be the only compromise there can be! Only problem would be, I'd never be able to get any sleep at all, because I'd want to be enjoying every season, knowing that I just get 6 hours of each per day!
