My idea of perfect weather year round weather is a high of 32C and a low of 24C with mostly sunny skies with rain about twice a week but only lasting a couple of hours each day. If I could have this weather every day for the rest of my life.. It would be like paradise!!! Knowing that "summer" would never end would bring me the greatest joy in life!!!

The average high for London is 23c. Summers in my dream climate is suunier, more convective and more reliable than London.

Concurrently, there would be a massive cooldown within a matter of minutes, such as from 70F to 40F (or even close to freezing in stronger ones). I'd also like for there to be only token amounts of rain. This isn't common in real-life, but this thread isn't about real life, and I think a few events like that would be really cool to experience every summer.

I prefer DRY weather, especially in summer!

Temperatures: average highs from 65 to 85 are in the good summer range. Average lows should be no lower than 45, but that is just for cold climates. I would love a cold climate as long as it isn't a perpetual winter, and highs in the mid to upper 60s with lows in the mid to upper 40s would suffice for me.

Other than that, average highs ranging from 70 to 85 are perfect, with average lows in the low to mid and upper 50s, possibly even up to the low 60s. Since I don't like excessive heat at night, I wouldn't want the lows much warmer than that on average.

Highs into the 90s and all the way up to 100 on some days are just fine with me, but I wouldn't really want many, if any, days to exceed 100F. Just too hot!

Sunny weather, perhaps interspersed with some days that feature cloudy weather, and perhaps a fleeting and quick rainfall before returning to the regularly scheduled sun and heat of day. (Did I REALLY just allow fleeting moments of rainfall here???! Yea, I did. I spent many a summer camping trips in Eastern Washington where, every so often, a rainfall of about 15 minutes or less would roll through and then it would be done and over with, going back to the sun and heat. THAT was okay with me, especially since days of this happening were far and few between).

NO MUGGINESS OR HUMIDITY ALLOWED! Or at least, as little as possible.
