^^ Me too.

I'm not sure what I would consider the "best climate", my tastes vary according to my mood.
However the "best climate" would probably have to have all-time, record lows at 40+ F. (4+ C)

Choking humidity, with piercing tropical sunshine, hot and steamy nights, rampant torrential thunderstorms with a bit of hail and hurricane force gusts for good measure.

I hear that in the hotter parts of India, it's common to sweat while you're taking a shower.

My favorite is Hawaii........
But, closer to home my favorite is Florida. I love the heat and I love being surrounded by water.

I love being by water, too, but of the cooler variety, Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, woohoo!

I still remember being shocked when I went to the Caribbean the first time (1982) the water was so warm to me! It was March and people thought the water was "cold"! They didn't know what cold water is (not until they check out Lake Superior)!!!

Not so pretty windy, but bl**dy windy! I hate Perth's wind. I find it annoying. And costly - three fences have blown down since we've been here, and a garage door damaged. Insurance doesn't cover the whole lot. A lot of sleepless nights. The only good side to the wind is that the bl**dy flies can't land on you. And we've got trillions of flies. Was just in southern Africa, and with all that poo lying around, they've far less flies than we do here. Cape Town's windy too. One day we were there the cable car up to Table Mtn was shut. Happens frequently apparently. But their temperatures aren't as extreme as Perth's.

Perth's weather is a bit too extreme for me - the heat, specifically. I love the amount of sunshine we get and the predominantly dry heat, but those really hot days are a pain in the butt. Your energy level gets depleted and you don't want to do much, if anything, particularly outside. Too much sun is dangerous too.

My vote for best weather is San Diego. Inland gets very hot there but closer to the coast it's milder. Weird thing about Perth is that it can still get to 44C, right by the coast. Desert meets the Sea.

Summer:

Stifling-Stagnant Heat, High Humidity (not the foggy kind), Beaming Sunshine during the day. 70's/80's for lows.

Precipitation comes in the form of Very Strong/Severe Thunderstorms with Torrential Downpours & Cloud-To-Ground Lightning.


Winter:

Warm & Pleasant (70's/80's) during the day, 60's/70's for lows. Precipitation comes in the form of Sun-Showers or T-Storms.
