When it's damn too hot.

BTW, earthquake isn't really a type of weather.

Earthquake is not weather...... That's a geological phenomenon, has nothing to do with the atmosphere

-10, heavy snow, and 60 MPH winds.

As a weather geek, I'm up for almost anything. But if I'm outside, moderate/heavy rain at temps between 33 and 45 is definitely not something I enjoy.

I'd probably hate snow if I grew up with it, but seeing as it's a relatively unusual phenomenon around here, I really like snow. Visiting MSP last winter, while it was below zero, was awesome!

BTW, I chose other as I assumed "hurricane" meant "tropical cyclone" (a weather phenomenon I like to track, since I'm far away from them). Because I also hate hurricane-force winds.

#1 - Drought - boring and leads to allergy problems with dust/pollen
#2 - Drizzle and overcast - depressing and annoying when running the windshield wipers (not enough moisture to run without making that scraping noise)
#3 - Sprinkles/Flurries - just a tease -- might as well not, especially in Florida winters when it comes to sprinkles, where it goes weeks without raining.

Hot weather above 75 degrees; added humidity, muginess, wildfire smoke, etc.

Snow that is under an inch. I want substantial snowstorms!

Hail.

Pretty much everything else I can deal with, but hail is just too damaging, especially if you're like me and don't have a garage.

Here in UT, we get everything. About the only big weather event I haven't seen here is a major ice storm, although we often have a couple days with freezing rain in the winter during an inversion (which is the one kind of weather I hate). I guess we haven't ever had a hurricane, but the remnants of Pacific hurricanes can come up during monsoon season and cause floods and severe thunderstorms.

100 F out and a dewpoint in the low 80s.

Open up their website and it's not uncommon for their entire homepage to be devoted to everything but the weather.

Tornadoes, extremely cold weather, cold weather, extremely hot and humid weather, hot and humid weather, and rain, in that order.

My least flavorite weather is flog. Flog is helll to drive thru. Visability is pliss ploor and u have to watch for people driving too fast in ploor visability & those driving too sloww too. And thats all I got to say about that.

Earthquakes are a form of seismic phenomenon....







But then again, they talk about it all the damn time on The Weather Channel.

Clouds, if that means overcast skies. I do enjoy thunderstorms, and sunny skies.

Post by: TravelingBethelite on August 22, 2017, 04:17:04 PM
Cold and windy. Gotdamn, do I hate that. Easily the most painful kind of weather (to me, at least, but then again, tornadoes and such don't frequently effect me).
Title: Re: Least favorite type of weather?

30 inches of rain in 27 hours. The entire region and my house floods. :(

The only thing I miss about living in the High Desert (Hesperia) is the usual dryness that accompanies heat in those parts (the very occasional monsoon coming up from the Gulf of California notwithstanding) -- there's a reason swamp coolers are prevalent in those parts.  Up here in San Jose and environs the heat is often paired with very high humidity -- when it gets over 93 degrees or so, I seem to have a permanent layer of moisture on my face, head, and forearms -- which is annoying when any kind of work need to be done (even of the paper variety!).  Doesn't bother my GF much; she works in an air-conditioned hospital -- and she lived in Atlanta for several years, so heat & humidity is second nature to her -- and as she often reminds me, there aren't any "goddam chiggers to bite you" out here on the coast -- and to suck it up!

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.

Hot and muggy, right after forest fire smoke.

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
