Do you remember a year where you had something like this in a May or June or September or October?

Sun: Sunny and pleasant high 77 low 56
Mon: Deep sunshine high 75 low 55
Tuesday: Sunny high 79 low 57
Wednesday: Sunny high 80 low 59
Thursday: Sunny high 81 Low 59
Friday : cool front Mostly Sunny high 71 low 53
Saturday: Sunny high 75 low 54
Sunday : Sunny high 78 low 56

Do you get streaks like that in some years in May and then everyone is out at parks or on the river, drinking beer happy hour outdoors, going to Cardinals games in comfy clothing, picnicking? Cookout barbecues, outdoor street band blues songs, taking visiting friends to St. Louis arch?

And is this something you get in most years in May or September ? And where it feels amazing you don’t need to run A/C or heat, you can pretty much open your windows air out your home, very low humidity

I remember from Sept. to Oct. 2015, it was about nothing but consistently beautiful weather until about the last several days of Oct. There wasn't even any rain to my recollection! I think those two months are about the best time to visit or go out in the city.

Just my opinion, but I would say the middle of September generally is when we consistently have the best weather. It's still warm enough to wear shorts and short sleeves, but the humidity has dropped and it's just usually really nice.

Sometimes the humidity drop happens earlier, but mid-September is generally definitely nice IMHO.

I recall meeting for business with someone from California around that time many years ago and he remarked about how great our weather was and he was going to mention it to his wife - I said you should come back in July and January before making any life-changing moves.

May is usually pretty nice too. March and April can be teases.

I will say pre-covid people do those things pretty much from May through October outside. The river floats are pretty much a summer thing, but being outside, drinking beer and going to Cardinal games are pretty much April through October (well, if we have one of our really good Cardinal teams). It can start getting cold about the middle of October, sometimes earlier, later. We've had really warm Halloweens and really cold Halloweens.

Yes, we have plenty of nice stretches. But this certainly isn't coastal California. The way I see it...we experience several climates without ever traveling.

December, January, February: Alpine.
March, April, May: Oceanic or Mediterranean.
June, July, August: Tropical.
September, October, November: Oceanic or Mediterranean.

We get plenty of nice stretches but I’ve never felt the need to keep track of how many days.

October or April are better for lower latitude areas. The sun is too strong in the hotter months regardless of humidity to be enjoyable. I've only had a total of 3 days over 90 degrees in the past 2 years luckily on the ridge above the Ohio River in southern Indiana.

I always love the convective storms in the summer. It'll be 90 degrees and humid...and then the storm pulls the cold air to the surface. Temps and dew points will drop 20 degrees. It's a blessing in the summer, a curse in the winter.

At least our swings aren't as extreme as the Front Range or High Plains. Last Fall, Denver had a 90 degree sunny day...followed the next day with a winter storm and 25 degrees. I've never seen that in StL.

A humid subtropical/humid continental doesn’t usually have stretches of really nice weather like that in June. Typically what happens is:
Day 1: precipitation
Day 2: beautiful day with highs in the seventies in and lows in the fifties
Day 3: same as day 2
Day 4: highs creep back into 80s and lows into sixties
Day 5: same as day 4 but more humidity
Day 6: temperatures reach 90

At this point the weather will repeat to "day 1" or will continue to be around 90.

March 2012

Other than the first 5 or so days of March of that year, nearly everyday was in the low 80s or upper 70s you might recall. Warmest March on record. Nearly the entire month of March the weather was more like the weather in late April and May.

That was also the same summer that it was one of the hottest summers ever in STL and the US.

You might recall the spring of 2012 with all the warm weather we also had a lot of severe weather that season too due to the warm unstable air.

We were using our AC a lot that March.
