Sacramento Summer:
Not nearly as hot as we or others exaggerate. During the last heat wave Sacramento was always cooler than anywhere else in the heat dome except for Coastal Cali and the mountains.

The desert southwest (Phoenix, Vegas,) is on average 20-30 degrees warmer during evening and morning hours and averages 10-20 degrees hotter during the day. The south, texas, florida and southwest bake in high humidity all summer long, and all night long.

Midwest and eastern seaboard cities are really humid during the summer - the daytime highs feel a lot warmer over there than our average summer high temps.

A 90 or 100 degree day in Sac feels more like a 80 or 90 degree in the rest of the humid east and south. So by high temps alone Sacramento appears a lot warmer than it is compared to other places.

Sacramento for the most part has cool summer nights and mornings.

A typical Sacramento Summer day is 90 degrees, dry 20% humidity (feels more like 87), with a very cool morning low of 55 degrees. The actual high temp doesn't represent how comfortable the rest of the evening and night temp will be as we cool quickly in the evening COMPARED to most other places across the USA.
Yes, I agree on all points. Sac. has hot but tolerable summers. When you average the high and low temperatures, it's actually cooler in summer than places that lie farther north on the East Coast, such as Philadelphia and New York City. When you factor in the low humidity, that makes it that much better. Winters are a somewhat similar deal. At the same latitude anywhere to the east, Sacramento's winters are much warmer.

Actually, I don't think humidity has anything to do with how bad the pollution is. Sac actually gets a fair number of bad air days, and most of them are in the summer when the humidity is low.

Actually, that is true. Sac falls squarely within the Mediterranean climate zone in just about every way.

This thread is funny. Whether the weather is better or worse than another place is purely subjective. Why are you fighting over it? If I say "The weather in San Diego sucks'" then I am correct. If Mary Jo says, "The weather in San Diego is the best in the world," then she is right.
I agree with you; these people who aren't reading what I am really actually saying just what to be contentious. They refuse to believe facts that I've posted. I haven't distorted anything. I stand by what I've posted, the temps, the times, the comparisons.

I'm in Toronto, Canada right now, the temps is only 82 but with 40% humidty and it feels like a 100 degree day in SAC, it really does. My Toronto friends said they have been running the A/C 24/7 for over a week which is not unusual, and I can vouch for the last several days its been uncomfortably hot. I personally have felt dizzy and a bit overcome just by walking a few blocks in the morning here in Toronto.

The Toronto nights have been oppressively humid, A/C needed throughout the night.

FYI, there's only one "o" in anomaly.

This is true to a point....but certain climates seem to be preferred by most humans more than others.
