This thread is for random climate discussion. Such as what is best climate to live and which would be extreme climate.


At least would a climate where coldest month averages 8 C (47 F) and warmest month 12 C (54 F). Freezing temperatures would be possible to occur in any month and snow would fall in coolest month.


And a climate where average low temperatures are close to 0 F in winter and average highs to 100 F in summer.

What I enjoy out of a climate tends to vary.  The only things I'm sure about is that I have no desire to live in a super humid tropical climate again.

I prefer something temperate with enough variance to be exciting (but not life-threatening or super annoying). Western Washington generally fits the bill, with summers that are warm and sometimes hot and winters that give us a taste of lowland snow but not long cold snaps. Could do with some more fun to break up the long gray season.

I like large populated places in extremely cold or hot climates. Northern China has average January temperatures in as cold as -25 C (-13 F) and Yakutsk approaches -40 degrees.

Neither of these is above the Arctic Circle, getting soft aren't we?

I like climates where they measure temperature in degrees F.

I really like hot climates measured in °F. Because 100 °F sounds better than 38 °C :sombrero:.

Here's what I want:

10 months out of the year – highs in the 60s to 80s, lows in the 40s to 60s.

1 month of full-on winter, with snowstorms every other day or something.

1 month of full-on summer, with highs over 100 and not a cloud in the sky.


People talk about how they love the changing of the seasons.  I do too, but summer and winter are just way too long.

I like warmer weather. I'd rather the highs be 90-100 degrees F than the lows be 20-25 F. Whereas heat is uncomfortable, cold is more painful. Also the wind worsens the feeling of extreme cold vs extreme heat. In terms of driving, my car's AC works better in 100 degree summer heat than the heater works in 20 degree cold.

You just need to have the right gear for cold. I went hiking in -10 degree weather a couple of years ago and had to shed layers. It wasn't bad at all due to having the right stuff.

My best unit is Celsius. A climate where average high temperature of warmest month is about 30-33 C and average low temperature of coldest month is about -1-(-5) C. Temperatures over 30 C would be normally measured as early as mid-April and as late as mid-September, and temperatures over 25 C (so-called summer days)would be measured as early as late March and as late as early November. There would be at least some snow every year and maximums under 0 C and minimums under -10 C would be regular.

Disagree.  By the point I've covered my face sufficiently to stop the bitter cold from hurting, I can neither see nor breathe properly.  There's always some part of my face exposed.

I use a balaclava when I hike or run below 20F.  It definitely solved the exposed face and breathing issues.

Exactly.  There's no bad weather, just bad clothing and gear.

Personally, I like having four seasons that can range from 0oF to 100oF with sun, rain, and snow.

If my eyes are still exposed, then my brow still hurts from the cold.  By the time I've pulled the forehead part of it down far enough to block that cold, it impedes my vision.  As I said, unless my entire face is covered, the cold hurts somewhere.

Apply Vaseline to the parts of your skin getting licked by wind.  I was taught to this while playing sports in high school in Michigan.  Vaseline is very affective blocking the wind from hitting exposed skin.  I still use it on my wrists and neck during winter runs.

Maybe my face is just less sensitive since I have a lot of Scandinavian blood and I lived my early formative years in Minnesota.
