Like Nameless said, we can have some very high temps here, too. The record for our state was tied last summer and that's 122. The record for my area is 116. But of course, we don't have weeks and weeks of that sort of heat. ]

But I don't laugh at the southern states in the summertime. I actually like that type of weather. But I'm not really jealous cause our summers are nice and warm.

I agree, 90 is hot enough but 110....that's ridiculous! I love cold but believe me 20 is cold enough, it doesn't have to be below zero for me to be happy.

Yah right!

Spring AND Fall typcially means highs of 45 F to a maximum of 68 F in Toronto, and probably anywhere close to western NY or New England.

Suffer in the 90's or low 100's F? Impossible for me.

I AM!

Our summers are not (consistantly) nice and warm;

-We can easily have full weeks at 58-68 F under overcast skies and gusty winds
-We can have full weeks from "Spring-like" 65-74 F
-We can have full weeks of "Summer-like" weather from 72-84 F
-We can have full weeks of "ACTUAL-Summer" () from 80-92 F
-Once in a blue moon we have hot summer weeks from 86-97 F

Actually, here it only gets up to 80's maximum in the summer, usually high 70's. During Santa Ana winds in the fall, it's in the 80's and 90's at the beach, while valleys can be over 110. But, meanwhile, it's like 40* for you guys already.

I wish it was as warm as 40 F...

Actually, yesterday we had a freak mild spell into the 40's F, but the howling 60 mph Arctic blast took it away.
More like 15 F right now.

we have many days of over 90 degree temps. But, the temps are not the problem, what is the problem is the humidities. It can get so humid here that you just can't breathe when you go outside.

That is why we have those days that are called, The Long Hot Summer!!!!

what a day. What an absolute ****ing ****house day.

At 1:00PM, let me stress PM, it is a DESPICABLE 65║F with FULL OVERCAST and RAIN. I am absolutely disgusted and mortified. I jsut had to put on a jumper in order to survive. This is without a doubt the ****test day this summer so far.

But ofcourse the rest of Australia is basking in mid 80's sunshine.
