The worst weather is heat.
The worst disaster-type weather is floods.

Forest fire smoke is a component of weather.  It appears in the NWS forecasts.

It is and can influence local and regional weather. Hence why the NWS has fire weather products

Why aren't "extreme heat" and "extreme cold" options?

When it's damn too hot.


Seconded.  Heat would be my answer.  Anything above 86F/30C is irritating.  Anything above 95F/35C gives me a continual, burning passionate hatred for life itself.  With the cold, at least you can layer up and do something about it.  With the heat, you're just helpless, powerless to prevent your fate of suffering every second of your exposure to it.

I also prefer cold to hot. But I prefer warm to cool.

For some odd reason (plausible G.W.!) we're getting roller-coaster weather around here tied to high pressure zones just sitting over NE California, which not only brings Diablo (NE to SW) winds (called Santa Anas in SoCal) that stoke fires, but extended heat days (peaking out at 96-97 in San Jose, previously unheard of in late October).  Unless you're willing to line PG&E's pockets by running your AC constantly on max, it's well past uncomfortable and heading rapidly toward untenable.  And every time there's a break it only lasts 3-4 days until the heat returns.  This close to the water the heat inevitably includes humidity, so that makes it much worse.  Hopefully, this won't be a pattern through November -- but I've come to fear the worst!

Well said! I was in Orlando in August, and it was in the low to mid 30's Celsius, and it made me wonder how people could live with that on a regular basis. Doing outdoor labour in the south must be terrible!

Then again, my younger brother is moving to Thompson, MB for work. If I lived up there during the winter, it would make me realize how crappy true cold is.

Rainy and barely above freezing.

But that's because I'm not a deer hunter.

-10, heavy snow, and 60 MPH winds.

That sounds like I-80/Wyoming in the spring
