Florida is less sunnier in summer than the Mid Atlantic imo. stop listening to FL summer propaganda. It is as hot as hell, and rainy as all get out.
Such should be said about eastern Queensland (Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast). They're advertised as having sunny summers when most of the time in the summer they're pretty rainy or at least cloudy, even for the whole day. They may have brief afternoon thunderstorms that give away to sunshine, but most of the time they get incessant clouds and sporadic showers in the summer. And winters are beautifully sunny. They're like a San Francisco or San Diego summer.

I was not surprised about S. Florida by the way. I could always tell it has it generally cloudy summers, even though in movies and music videos we always tend to see its sunny side.

I think with climate change, it is bad to live around places that are near the equator and near bodies of water. Because just about any island in sub to tropical weather is getting battered by storms.

Yeah and with this climate change, many continental interiors will become deserts while areas closer to the coastal areas will hog all the rain

Check out India for what might be the perfect compromise! Warm, dry winters with ample sunshine, with epic monsoon rainfall during the summer months ... but also a reliable hot and dry spring season, pre-monsoonal heating that can easily match and exceed the summer temps in other parts of the world! Great winter weather, lush summer vegetation, but also a reliable hot and dry period for activities like pool time, beaches, outdoor grilling and barbeque, etc - what's not to like?

You can check out a selection of Indian climates below. I split them into three groups based on rough approximations of their location split into groups based on (rough) regions - Northern India is first, with Arabian Sea coast second, and the Bay of Bengal coast third. Northern India sees the most pronounced heat during spring, with average highs even exceeding 100°F during April/May, while the Bay of Bengal coast seems to be less hot compared to the rest of the country.

If you are very near to the equator, then there is no risk of tropical cyclones.

What I see here is that Arabian sea coast is cooler. Western side of Bay of Bengal (Eastern coast of India) is hotter than the eastern side (Bangladeshi coast south of Chittagong and the northern part of Myanmar's coast.

Salalah, Oman is a good one, and it manages it with very little rainfall.

But to be fair, it is in the tropics and seasons aren’t much different temperature-wise.

I notice that there is heavy rainfall earlier in the year over at the Bay of Bengal region compared to areas farther west in India. You have quite some rainfall in places like Assam, as well as neighboring Bangladesh and Myanmar, whereas the heavy rain doesn't start until June over at Arabian Sea, as well as other areas of India. However, I'm not the biggest fan of the southeastern Indian coast in places like Tamil Nadu, as well as some of adjacent Sri Lanka - the rain shadow from the Western Ghats really dampens a lot of the monsoonal fun.

That's an interesting area of Arabia. The coconuts are very happy there!

It looks like the intense fog and moisture, combined with the relatively low July/August highs in the low 80s, do a great job in providing sustenance for serious plant life in spite of the very low annual rainfall. The fog season is actually a part of the Indian monsoon, from sources that I've read. That area also received loads of rain from a cyclone hit in May a couple years ago. It's highly likely that Arabia was much wetter in previous climactic cycles, as long as the ITCZ over North Africa moved far north enough.

A number of places in New Zealand where winter is sunnier than summer - all in colder parts of the country.

What places in particular? Do they have sunshine stats on Wiki?
