If you are referring to that image, BIG DEAL. UK summers are horrible IMO.

Maybe next time I should say, I want to tell how I truly feel about Portsmouth summers but I won't so that I don't upset the feelings of some people

What else am I to think of a summer where the average high is closer to my average lows, where in Portsmouth, a good majority of the day temperatures would be spent in the 60's since the average high is only 71F. You might like it and that's fine by me. I don't and apparently that isn't fine by you.
How about 'summers are cooler than I'd like, I don't rate them at all, I'd prefer much hotter temperatures' or 'summer in Portsmouth is similar to spring in Chicago, and it isn't my idea of summer'? Everything you say seems to provoke people.

Is it due to Azores High tendency to move north during summer?
Does anyone answer this question I posted yesterday?

He is mixing means and avg highs. The NE will be much colder. There is no where in the NE US that has avg Jan high temps of 46F. DC might come close, but the winter lows are much colder than England.

Naw...

You americans seem to think us British/Irish are thickos and we couldn't cope with any type of extreme weather despite the fact that we do get snow regularly and intervals of -10c are not that uncommon with places reaching 30c at least every few years.
We don't get regular snow in any part of the UK that I've ever heard of. Even the ski resorts of the Scottish Highlands struggle to open for a few weeks out of the whole winter.

People who have lived in the UK all their life are not accustomed to extreme weather, that's simply the truth. Nobody here in Scotland ever says that the weather is "warm", if there's any discernable warmth on their skin, they always say that it's "hot" or "boiling". For most people in the world, average highs of 18C doesn't amount to much of a summer. 18C is too cold for an indoor temperature, but if out in the summer and the sun is shining, it's generally quite comfortable.

We just look at the data darlin and last december philadelphia airport had an average high of 10.7c which is buckets warmer than the UK.

Averages don't paint a true picture in america as tutempio shows.

If you are trying to say that it is colder than 8c there all the time you are wrong because I just showed data with some years being 9c.

If they struggly to stay open how come the avg high in ben nevis is -2c in january and it is below freezing for over 5 months?

And we do get snow regularly. It comes every single year.

Apparently only people from Northern Europe. They need to get over it. I have the same opinion of the PNW. I don't see people from Seattle putting on their battle armor to defend the dignity of their climate. Like I said, Chicago has one of the worst weather reputations in the US for a whole variety of reasons. I can deal with the criticism....

I don't see many people on here from Seattle, bar one person, so that explains it.

Perhaps you should just give criticism in a less provocative manner. No need for the snide remarks or jibes like a child. People on here always say that summers in the UK are too cool for them, but you manage to do it in a way that annoys people. I think you're fully aware of this.
