Default Which state has the best overall weather?

I've checked out a few places I was interested in, but definitely don't want to move to a state that's hit by tornadoes regularly, or has any extreme weather
Are there any places that are considered safer/better as far as weather conditions?

I don't think any state has "perfect" weather, but California comes pretty close.

If you want a very mild 4 season climate try the Cumberland Plateau at (2000ft) elevation in north-central Tennessee.

yup

i determined that my perfect temp is around mid 40s with a light breeze. i was out in that this morning and it felt so perfect...sun beating down made it hot though, so cloudy works. and south central AK has that on average in the spring..

Default Leaning towards California

It's amazing how many people are suggesting California. I've always wanted to go but heard there's earthquakes, mudslides, etc. Maybe not as often as tornadoes in the midwest?

the low elevation areas of Arizona, Inland Southern California, the Southernmost parts of Texas and Florida tend to have good weather if I'm not mistaken.
