Summer is long, usually hot but seldom excessive/lethal;
rarely hits or passes 105 F, but surprisingly seems perpetually in the high 90's or low 100's F most of the summer.


In mid-winter, highs usually range from high 60's to low 70's.

*But that's just me... I was BORN liking 75-90 F weather; it just seems in my genes.
Interestingly Cairo doesn't seem to get very hot nights, often you'll see the forecast saying something like 20C, despite the hot summer days.

I alway's found Lake Havasu City's climate impressive.

I like 65-70 degrees, 5mph winds, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky.

I have to say Perth has the best climate in the world

Winter temps: Max: 60-70F Min: 40-50F
Summer temps: Max: 75-95F Min: 60-65F

Summer has mostly sunny days with an odd storm
Winter has rainy days with suny breaks in between the wet days
My favorite weather is warm, gentle rain.

Perth sounds very nice. I'll have to visit it when they get that bridge done. You must have a grand growing season.

If you have decent insulation though, if the day is 37 C and night 21 C, the average for the day is 29 C,
factor in some sun heating and even if you left the windows open at night, it would still probably be 25-28 C inside by morning.

I just thought it was neat to have so much heat and warmth but rarely have temps that can kill people.

I also liked how ancient Egyptians did not wear shirts and they were either comfortable, or they were trying to cool off a little. Apparently pharoahs were comfortable living in Egypt in the heat of the summer in shaded rooms with some servants fanning them; no A/C and they still didn't flee the heat to the tallest mountains or to northern Europe.

Unfortunately, a typical Amsterdam (Netherlands) summer day looks like this:

- around 59°F in the early morning (13-17°C)
- mid 60's late morning until noon (around 18-19°C)
- high 60's all afternoon (19-21°C)
- cooling to low 60's not a minute before sunset (17-18°C)
- staying at high 50's until at least mid-night (15°C)

The Netherlands sports one of the worst summer climates in the world (and a lot of pollution). The brighter side is that the country enjoys about the same amount of wealth as the USA. Average sunshine in May-August is around 40%. In December it is 18%. And the forum readers (i.e. mostly American people) thought that Seattle has a lot of overcast skies.

It is difficult to state a city that has the best weather, because virtually everywhere climate is more favorable than in The Netherlands (the same holds for air quality). To make a choice, I like the Mediterrean climate of Rhodes in Greece.

- Dry summers with average daily highs in August in the high 80s (30,7°C) and rarely above 93 (34°C) and a light sea breeze.
- Mild winders with average daily highs in January at 59°F (14,9°C). This temperature is low enough to look forward to spring and summer.
- 3,000+ hours of sunshine in a year
- Average sea temperature in August around 80°F (27°C) thanks to the absence of upwelling

Same here, if such a place existed where this was the weather year-round (a place where people actually lived, and could have a job, and all the big-city stuff), count me in.

My favorite climate is mild in winter, hot but dry in summer...
I'd take Spain, Southern Italy, Greece, California....plenty of other locations, no doubt.

I am in the wrong place as far as climate goes... cold and wet New England! Other than the climate, I love it though.... LOL.
