It seems the northwest area, near Eno and Duke and the southwest area and Chatham county areas may be good places for me to live. Are these areas similar weather-wise? Thank you.

Northwest Durham = lots of snow and rain and cold temps
Southwest Durham = very dry and hot

Thanks Pitroad! When you say dry, does that mean drought? I ask because right now I'm living in San Diego and it's dry here, which means dirt, no green and drought.

Dude, he's joking with you. How different do you think two parts of the same city can be - seriously?

Oh, hahaha. Well, here if one drives 5-10 miles there is a big difference in weather, so was going by that... Guess since Durham isn't on the coast there aren't the same extreme weather changes. Thanks.

I live in south durham near the county line I find the southern part of the county having more pine trees and undeveloped forest and the northern part of the city a more mature/ landscaped canopy ---> pine tree vs oak and kudzu

you asked about weather tho and no honestly

we get a lot of spotty rain systems so it could easily rain in one place and not the other but our weather is regional nearly statewide

Well my post was meant as a joke, sorry. Durham and Chatham counties are right next to each other so the weather will be almost exactly the same for both. This might give you an idea of the monthly averages for the area, https://www.wunderground.com/history...eqdb.wmo=99999
Sorry didn't realize some parts of the country have such wide variances in such short distances ... live and learn

As the OP stated, San Diego is a good example. It can be 75 near the beach and 95 a bit inland ---- seriously.

Durham is pretty consistent in weather, but sometimes there's a lot of hot air coming out of 16 West Jones Street next door in Raleigh.

Thanks Heyguy. That is a really nice image, of the different trees...

No problem Pitroad. Your situation didn't occur to me either. Weather in CA varies so much depending on where one is that it didn't occur to me that an entire state could be so similar weather-wise. Here it may be foggy and cold in one area and 10 miles down the road it's sunny and really hot. Also, as Ucctgg posted, the temps. coastal and a little bit inland are very different. Further inland it gets really hot.

Jowel Well, at least the hot air issue is consistent from state to state....
