Every thread goes off topic for a bit.

Anywhere between with no lows below 60 F,
no highs above 105 F,
moderate rainfall; a few showers only 1-3 days a week
an average of at least 10 hours of sunshine per day
and a breeze most of the time.

Feel free to also participate in the Aussie weather threads. We're pretty relaxed on the Weather forum and all participate in threads even if they're outside our own country.

c'mon you baby!!! No highs above 105F, harden da fudge up!

My ideal summer would be:

highest highs topping : 115F
atleast 10 nights a year warmer than: 85F
1-3 days a week with afternoon storms (AS OPPOSED TO UGLY COLD RAIN)

It goes without saying, but Lake Havasu City has the best climate in the world.

Definantly not mine, although the 3 day forecast does look rather good. 47C(117F) right now. Summer highs are good but I look for cold and snow in the winter.

LOL!
I have never seen an outdoor high past 104 F and it seemed to still be cool enough to keep plants from dying.

Remember, I love to garden watch plants grow.
Phoenix with an average high of 105 F in July causes "growth stopping heat" according to gardening books,
so that could be very annoying to me.

Your ideal summer sounds nice for cold-blooded humans like you and I though.

I have lived in the city with the best summer and also winter. The homes in this town have no AC cause its not needed and the winter highs in January are in the mid 60's. Can anyone guess where this is?

Jammie you are very close, but in Paso you definitely need AC as the average high in the summer is in the 90's.
