I disagree America's Midwest climate is bad. They get the opportunity for a lot of good weather days in between bad ones.

The nutshell for the Midwest is depending on the direction of the wind, the temperature can swing from one extreme to the other, but this also means if you don't like the weather, just wait a few days. This isn't so terrible.

I would consider a bad weather region one where there's no hope for a nice weather day no matter what luck may bring. This wouldn't be the Midwest.

Worst weather would have to go to Ellesmere Island, Canada ....where in winter you can hardly survive, and in summer you are trapped in muck and a few weeks out of the year that ice breaks open

Also Bangladesh is a pretty awful climate....like Southeastern US in summer humidity but without any cool dry season at all.

Climate of the South Pole: warmest it ever gets is still sub-zero temperatures

Singapore's climate is hot muggy without an end

These have to be the worst because they are the no hope for change climates

Almost all latitudes have good and bad weather spots


Low latitudes: good weather in mountainous regions, bad weather in low-lying places

Middle latitudes: good weather in Mediterranean and California and sea coasts with moderating currents. Bad weather in places with stagnant air and hardly any wind

High latitudes: good weather Scandinavia and Finland and good summer weather for Alaska and parts of Russia
Bad weather where there's no break in ice

Worst climates are everything in the tropics, Sahara desert, California/Nevada/Arizona/Utah desert (I don't know its name), Atacama desert, everything in the Mediterranean regions, Nunavut, Chukotka, Barrow (Alaska), Svalbard Islands and those other islands near the North Pole, Antarctica and very high altitude places. And polar regions (except Norway).

Like England, but 1000x worse.
Yep, the UK and surrounds are a very close call to me. But heat and humidity just beats anything in terms of oppressiveness.

Middle East and Sahara Desert would be worst. Atacama Desert is tied for worst.

Yeah, because Canada never gets decent weather or anything.

The South Pole. Even a simple task like washing the car, could be a life or death situation.

California south of perhaps 40N and below around 1,000 m elevation, Sahara+Sahel, Middle East below maybe 1,500 m ASL, NW India, southern+eastern (along Indian border) Pakistan, any thermally tropical area that is [semi-]arid (ABC Islands in Caribbean come to mind).

I would agree to some degree.

A good amount of sunshine and warm temps has always been tops on the human comfort index.

So places like NW Europe (Ireland, UK, Norway, Sweden, Finland,) the PNW area of Canada/NW USA , and even places like Melbourne, and the lower half of South Island, NZ would be the worst. Most of these places struggle with low sunshine hrs and anemic summer warmth.

Disagree about the UK having a bad climate. It's a good climate if you like comfortable, uninhibiting weather which at least here most people seem to. It's weather you don't notice.

I like hotter sunnier summers so not ideal for me but there are a lot of people who don't on this forum and the UK has a good climate for a lot of people.

"Bad" climates are ones with ridiculous heat or cold, like Kuwait City or Antarctica.
