After this week, we know that Virginia does not have the best weather in the country. The winters are bad and the summers are too.
Where is the best weather in the US? Where can we find the highest number ‘pleasant’ days? Kelly Norton’s website defines pleasant as “the mean temperature was between (55° F and 75° F), the minimum temperature was above 45° F, the maximum temperature was below 85° F and there was no significant precipitation or snow depth”. Her interactive map of the country shows the number of pleasant days in every city. Search for your city on the map, or plug in your zip code. Charlottesville has 68 pleasant days per year and Richmond has 57. The five most pleasant areas are all in California:
- LOS ANGELES, CA 183 days/yr
- SAN DIEGO, CA 182 days/yr
- OXNARD, CA 166 days/yr
- SIMI VALLEY, CA 156 days/yr
- SAN FRANCISCO, CA 153 days/yr
The five least pleasant places to live:
- MC ALLISTER, MT 14 days/yr
- NORTHEAST OF RENO, NV 15 days/yr
- CLANCY, MT 15 days/yr
- DOUGLAS, WY 15 days/yr
- EAST OF CEDARVILLE, CA 16 days/yr
