AS far as the United States goes, San Diego has the best climate for a place without seasons
and Denver for the four seasons.

45-60ish, overcast, possibly a light mist. That's my ideal weather, though I suppose I wouldn't want it to be like that all the time. It was in the high 50s and drizzly this morning, and it was heaven for me. Now the sun's out and it's 75, which is bearable as long as I'm in the shade. But I miss the weather from earlier!

Nairobi, Kenya has the best in the world.

Typical daily range 13-25C year round (it's almost smack bang on the equator about 2,000 m above sea-level), with a nice mix of sun and rain (a definite rainy season but without the chance of flooding). Kind of like constant Perth spring or autumn.

Put it this way, Australia is very sunny compared to the UK especially where winter sunshine is concerned.
Despite Perth having the wettest winter cloud isn't as persistent as Adelaide, Melbourne or Hobart, with it being rare to go more than 48 hours without seeing at least some sun/blue sky.

Summer in Perth is probably slightly cloudy for a Mediteranean climate, compared to places with truly rainless summers like Sacramento or say Tel Aviv, Israel.

Sacramento apparently averages 14 hours of sun per day in July. That would have to be nearly 100% of max possible.

With 28 clear days that's no surprising.

lucky bastards, that 28 more clear days than what Melbourne gets in a decade. Astronomy heaven.

Temp-wise it appears to be similar to somewhere like Albury or Wangaratta.

Sacramento average for July is quoted as 97% of possible sun. Dec-Jan is about 49%, annual average 78%. Perth Aero's relatively short record gives it about 72%. Fresno is similar to Sacramento in seasonal profile with an average of 79%. Redding (with a rather short record) gets an impressive 88% annual average, second only to Yuma in the list of towns I have (averages through 2008).

There's no way Redding is sunnier than Sacramento and Fresno, and nearly as high as Yuma (about 90% I believe). From memory Redding gets more like 67%.

I checked the stats. Something fishy here. I notice a few off stats for some other stations on the NOAA list. Especially when Sacramento is so much cloudier in winter 46% and 72% for Redding? No way. Yet Redding gets more precipitation in winter than Sacramento.
