"You know what they say about weather in __________: 'If you don't like it, just wait 5 minutes and it will change.'"

That's a common one here in Michigan.

You missed the point.  It's a common one everywhere.  Everyone thinks their state's weather is more variable than everyone else's.  Michigan isn't unique in that regard.

And I would argue that this thread is a way to resolve which state you can actually apply that sentiment to. I don't believe I've seen anyone beat my 85° swing in a week for Colorado.

So na-nah-na-nah-boo-boo. I win.

I don't recall anyone beating it either.  But, if someone were to beat it, it would probably be someone from Montana or the Dakotas.

I feel like they're quick to drop, but less quick to warm up, anecdotally of course.

Agreed.

How did a human being consciously decide to write the Washington one? Is he being serious? Can he comprehend the words on the screen?

I'm so guilty of parroting and encouraging this statement for Maryland, but we're at one of the central latitudes of the U.S. so we have an element of validity in ours.

A few days ago parts of Southern Ontario went from +10 degrees Celsius to -10 degrees Celsius within 24 hours.

Has absolutely nothing to do with it.

East of the Cascades, it could definitely apply (just like anywhere else). West of the Cascades, less so for sure.

As suspected.  The Dakotas.

I know this thread is for one week variations, but I don't think it's worth a new thread for variants. One of the biggest 12 hour variations for Denver overnight. 73° at 3:30 PM yesterday. 32° at 3:30 AM today. Drop of 41° in 12 hours.

Not doubting it; spent one week in December 2022 in Rapid City and it was calm and 50-52F on Monday afternoon, with a low of -25F and windy just a few days later. It was December, so I was expecting the latter more than the former.

(But now I have a logical reason for my eyes to glaze over when people talk about changeable weather.)

I kind of expect a big temperature swing from the Denver area, it's in the "mystery belt"...

Not a week, but it was 53F this morning when I got up in Monterey.  It was 103F by the time I got home in Fresno this afternoon.
