Northern Great Lakes and Alaska are a close tie for first, I think. The lakes around Northern Michigan and the mountains all over Alaska, along with the Gulf of Alaska, really play havoc in predicting the weather.

Did you forget to vote? That's exactly who I voted for before I even scrolled down and mine is the lone vote for it. We do have very unpredictable weather here.

I think it has to be one of the plains regions. Two days ago, we had a high of 102, and today it won't get above 80, even though the weathermen were saying it was supposed to be around 93 or so. I remeber one time in December when we had fog, sunny warm weather (70s), a rare duststorm, thunderstorms with hail, sleet, and snow (low 20s) all all within a 24-hour period. (I promise I'm not making it up.)

actually this is very predictable because it's the same every day. You know it is 59 in San Francisco and 79 in San Jose. It can't be 79 in SF and 59 in SJ
