For June to September, I actually have similar weather preferences as you with enjoying sunny warm/hot weather. (80s/90s for highs and 60s/70s for lows).

However, for the rest of the year I prefer very different weather such as cooler temperatures, much more clouds, more rain, etc.

So what Hong Kong has for Late Winter/Early Spring (many cloudy/rainy/drizzly/foggy days in a row) is something I enjoy for that time of the year.

I know plenty of things about Hong Kong. This city has plenty of tropical/subtropical beaches and islands in the area, so I assumed this made it more laid back in some ways etc. And I was not necessarily saying it is very laid back, I was just saying the recent weather might be making it more laid back.

I also was not saying Hong Kongís air quality is good year round. I just donít think the air quality is always so bad. Air quality seems to vary a lot there between decently good air quality and bad air quality days which is true for plenty of big cities. Plus, Hong Kong has one of the highest life expectancy and well being rates in the world, so the air quality canít be that bad.

Hong Kong is one of those great places in the world where it is easy to overcome less than ideal weather.
I never get bored of sunny hot weather and I HATE Hong Kong's early spring weather

Hum, HK indeed has many islands, beaches, and green, undeveloped areas. But it's the opposite extreme : nothing is happening in those areas. Hong Kong is either unbelievably fast paced and crowded urban areas, or totally empty, natural areas. It's hard to find something in the middle, like a place where you can just enjoy a coffee in the sunshine in a pedestrian street or whatever

The argument about life expectancy is irrelevant, HK's air quality is terrible, no need to prove anything about that

The fluctuation between Thursday and yesterday was crazy, though not unheard of either. It went from 70 F and breezy Thursday afternoon (and still 65 F around midnight) to cold and blustery (30s) late Friday afternoon. This must be similar to what the south often experiences during the winter.

It does seem similar to conditions sometimes experienced in the Southeast, although monotonous warmth is more common. Of course it depends greatly on the particular winter and where you go - New Orleans will have a lot more monotony than Nashville.

I'd certainly call what you experienced a decent swing, from 70F to about 35F. Still it's just a washout from really warm to merely mild, even if it's unusual for your area, and not what I'd call an up-and-down pattern, as I noted in a previous post. For there to be a real up-and-down pattern, there has to be changes from warmth/heat to cold and preferably snow, preferably repeated several times. 30's F doesn't cut it. And from what I gather from Newark's forecast you're slated to go right back to extreme warmth in the 60's and 70's Fahrenheit in a matter of 2 days. Some cold shot (of course I know your attitudes, and both of us would milk it for all it's worth).

Well we kinda had snow after our warm spot, even if it was brief, and one of the coldest nights of the winter just before (10įF).

And the snow patch across the street survives!

Hoping for green grass next week...

After this lame winter with barely any snow on the ground, 60s and sunny is great! That is my favorite non-snowy weather. Hopefully it's a sign of a prolonged spring instead of an early summer.

So it turns out that after the sunny false start to spring this high pressure is going to be choked with cloud and gloom for the next week at least. What a crock of balls.

Not a cloud in the sky here. The Met Office are being stupid at the moment, their text forecast contradicts their graphic forecast. No significant rain in the forecast either until at least Sunday next week. 10.2mm / 0.4in for the month, so could be another dry one, well, not for those in Kent who got over 40mm / 1.5in

I woke up not too long ago, and was greeted with a sheet of gray across the sky (like every morning so far) supposed to be 60įF down here and partly cloudy today

I typed this last night after looking at the BBC forecast.

However it appears as though my rant was impromptu as it is indeed sunny here. What a surprise.
