My ideal is cloudy mornings and sunny afternoons that don't go above 82F. I could take that all year long.

My area gets about 280 sunny days per year (~3200 hours). This is about 200 too many days for me.

I like the sun at the low on the horizon, especially in the wintertime.
I much prefer colder weather.

We get only about 155 sunny days, and that's a bit more than ideal for me. I like clouds, and rain, which is why we moved here, after 40 years in California with that dreaded 300+ days of sun (and hot).

We get too much sun here. Perhaps that is why we are called "The Sunshine State". The last thing I want when it's 95 degrees with 90% humidity is the sun turning it into a steam bath. I don't mind the sun as much in the "winter" but it sure heats things up. I prefer a nice cloudy day, at least here in Florida. When I was living in New York I liked it sunny, especially during the colder months.

About 2200- 2300 hours would be ideal.

For me, the UV index matters greatly and cloud cover very little.

I prefer a UV index of 4-Moderate, 5-Moderate, 6-High, 7-High or 8-Very High. However, I will grudgingly take a peak daily UV index as low as 2-Low and as high as 11-Extreme within a month of the solstices; I belong in the Sun Belt as I already am, but not too far south (unless summers are cloudy) nor too high above sea level (which also gets colder).

"You can also talk in depth, like about monthly preferances."

~90 hours per month.
especially February.

I am not a fan of the sun at all, ha ha. I think I have reverse SAD and tend to get down when there is a long period of unbroken sunny weather. Luckily where I live this is not a common occurrence.

It's pretty cloudy in fall, winter and early spring but I would love to have sunlight hours under 1200 hours.



Some call it dreary but I call them Happy Clouds...
