I would disagree with NZ locations - while there are some wet locations, they are still typically as warm or warmer, and as sunny or sunnier than the worst the PNW has.

Yep, they might not be good climates, but they aren't the worst either.

Twas a dark and stormy evening in Wellington last night - a bit nicer today, although the windchill is certainly biting.

If you're here now, bad timing. Coldest couple of days for a long time. May here was the warmest or warmest equal on record - data soon - and the sunniest since 1938. Marked by a big reduction in the number of cloudy "spoiler" days with N/NW flow, and by many dry sunny ones with light W/WSW.

215 hours at Blenheim for May, national record is 223 at Nelson in 1931.

West Coast was wetter than average in autumn, unlike most of the country. Cropp waterfall has clocked up about 4600mm, well ahead of its previous highest autumn total.

The world has also Siberia, Greenland, Antarctica, Canada, Svalbard, etc. and such places with terrifying cold, unliveable climates.

Ofc when I say Africa or Canada I'm not saying the whole continent or the whole country but much of their area.
That was from like 3 years ago

Yeah I'll classify Tasmania as the worst in Australia (where i live) and i meant the cold, mountains parts of patagonia/ushuaia. These days i would change it to Far eastern coastal russia (Magadan or Sakhalin), very cold with strong seasonal lag and rainy summers.

For uninhabited places probably antarctica.

Check Addis Abba, Asmara, and Maseru, to name a few.
I know quite well that Africa is very varied, and I didn't paint is as hot and humid. Half of Africa is made by desert badlands, terrifying hot deserts or scorching sabanas. Then another good bunch of Africa is formed by extreme jungles.

At the same time, they have one of the best bunch of climates in the world in South Africa, a blessed land. Coastal Namibia is pretty good too and much of coastal Morocco as well. But in overall, Africa is quite bad in my honest opinion. More than half of the continent has very opressive climates, that's why a good bunch is completely uninhabited.

No, I just dislike the gloomy & wet depressing mess that is Seattle. My opinion, yours is not biased at all
