I love rainy days in the winter but when it's just overcast or drizzle with temperatures in that range I hate it.

A steady light to moderate rain at 50F is pleasant in a raincoat, but a hot/humid day is just plain miserable.

Hot and humid, or just hot. Places like Phoenix Arizona, Death Valley, CA, Bangkok, Thailand come to mind.

Depends what I'm doing. If I'm not working then a cool rainy day is horrendous. If I am working then the 30C is horrendous.

Definitely hot and humid for me. I love a 50 F rainy day. Even in the winter there might be a 50 F rainy day or two in my dream climate. They'd be very common in the spring and fall. I know I'm in the minority, but I can even enjoy a 35 F/2 C rainy day...especially when a little sleet and snow mix in along with a brisk breeze.

If you're talking about the snow Wisonsin gets I agree. I to feel that a snowstorm is the most miserable weather not to mention dangerous if driving.
