Intensely hot during the day, followed by a hot night. About twice a week, humidity would increase and huge thunderstorms would develop during the evening.

During the day, it would be cool enough to wear a short sleeved shirt and pants without sweating. Sweating would only be possible if I exercised outside for more than 30-45 minutes, depending on the intensity. If I had a fan in the window, it would be cool enough for me to put on a long sleeved shirt or lay under a blanket.

During the night, I would have to sleep with the fan off because it would be too cold otherwise.

*By the way, I explicitly used the term "fan" because in ideal conditions, A/C units would only be necessary during freak heat waves.

There is no ideal summer weather for me, because summer is the opposite of winter. If it were ideal for me, it wouldn't be summer but winter. I think I just confused myself.

No worries...
So you're ideal summer is probably either "spring-like"
(or "winter-like" if you're obsessed with cold )
*I know I'm breaking one of my own thread's rules,
but for me highs from 74-55 F and lows down to just barely above freezing can count as "spring-like."
Winter for me means "ice and snow" to some degree, even if it's a rare overnight occurance.


My ideal "winter weather" is it's the only time of year it can get quite chilly, and preferably that only happens overnight.
Could be frosty but doesn't have to be, and I would definitely not "want" to see any rogue frosty mornings outside of winter;
The only season it "makes sense" to (mentally) put up with cold.
For me "seasons" caused by large temperature changes hurt.
Wet and Dry Seasons? I'd be more than happy to handle those instead.

Our spring weather is nearly as hot as summer, so I definitely don't want that! On the other hand, all-out winter weather in the middle of summer might be a little frightening, because that would be a sure sign that something was severely screwed up.

I wasn't saying "your" spring weather,
I meant the idealic or common thoughts on what spring is.
To me, spring means temps where most people feel is "good" for long pants and a t-shirt during the day
with or without a jacket around dawn/dusk.
(like typical North Florida winter weather )


*If you'd like "winter-like" summers (windchills approaching freezing ) then perhaps you wish you could live with the Eskimos or in Newfoundland...
Nothing wrong with not wanting to stay living where you grew up.

I gave you rep points for that last sentence alone.

I suppose I wouldn't want winter-like weather in the middle of summer. Highs in the low 70s without too much humidity would be nice. I still prefer cooler temps than that, but I certainly wouldn't complain if that's what summer was like!

Winterlike weather in the middle of summer is evil. Unfortunately, here it's all too common. To me, anything below 25C in summer is too cold.

Ideal summer would be when it starts with a "w" and ends in "inter"!

Just Kidding. It would have to be hot enough to want to go to the beach or pool, but cool enough that in evenings or night you can do outside activities like walk, bike, play basketball/football, etc.
