Raleigh averages 69 days with a minimum at or below freezing.

Clearly this thread is setup as another UK bashing thread. This has been done to death.

UK is superior in terms of comfort and sunshine.

Are you serious? Raleigh quite obviously has colder nights on average from November-February than London. There's not really any disputing that. And using this past winter as a vantage point is rather pointless, especially with the historically warm December.

The U.K. of course! The Southern U.S. is too hot for most of the year.

Yeah, good guess lol. So still a good third of winter nights are above freezing. This past December- January period we had 39. So most nights this winter were above freezing. To be fair London has a massive UHI and is at a coastal location, how are the stats for places more inland?

December was also the warmest on record. Why do you conveniently leave stuff like that out? Wanna look up the stats for an average winter?

Heathrow is inland and not part of the UHI and gets 30 frosts per year. Greenwich gets 25 frosts per year. Central London gets around 5-10 frosts per year.

Well nah, the average is 69 nights a year that is already known, and I said our average is in the 60s, I just stated we got 39 this year lol. That's all.

But that only includes the winter. We got 49 if you count November, March, and April.
