See, we here in Canadialand are often asked things like "do you have air conditioning in your igloos?" but we actually make houses out of concrete, wood, and gyprock. We also use nails, screws, and duct tape.

As it stands here in Manitoba, (it's called a "province")  we don't get cold weather. We get continental weather. It's either extremely cold, extremely hot, or extremely mild. We go from -40C/F to 38C/100F depending on the year (and that's the temp; that's not any adustment due to either humidity or wind-chill). Generally it's mild, but our weather is rarely consistant.

Yesterday one of the smaller towns in Manitoba just got to 53deg Celcius (127.4deg F) with the humidex rating, and we were at a paltry 57C (116F) in Winnipeg (provincial capitol). Then it rained and dropped to low eighties in the afternoon. Crazy stuff

fixed some bad labelling. that's 116F, not 116C retard Water boils at 100C

SF is basically 60 degrees F year round.  It can fluctuate 30 degrees or so either way, but doesn't do so often.  And if you go about 10 miles south, it can easily be 20 degrees hotter than SF.

What, you mean Canadians don't live in Igloos and have heads that look like eggs? (South Park  icon_biggrin)

Down here in South Florida (Miami/FtLauderdale) it's always hot. I'm sick of it. Even in the "winter" it's hot. No wonder all the Canadians come down here!

Salt Lake is usually 95-105 F in the summer and 20-40 F in the winter.  Both spring and fall are 60-70's.  I hate the summer (I generally despise hot weather in general), but the rest of the year is really quite nice.  Very low humidity as well, which helps.

Weather.com says it's 85 today, but after spending the morning outside, I can guarantee it's hotter than that.

But look on the bright side for us who live in Arizona (or downtown at least) - our winters rock (60-70 degrees for a high). Makes the summer (and the oh-so glorious monsoon season) bearable.

Rarely above 85... rarely above 80, really... this summer has been particularly hot though, and we've had like a month above 80, even a couple of days above 90, I think...

Humidity is generally less than 20%.  Today it's up to 41% because we had a massive downpour yesterday.

Seattle's pretty nice if you want a moderate climate without extremes and if you can handle a lot of gray rain drizzle days.  People think it rains a lot here, but that's only true in terms of number of days it rains and it not true in terms of amount of rain.  The nice thing is that the rain filters the air so air quality if usually pretty good and clear days are brilliantly nice.  High temps range from 50-70 degrees most of the year with summer averaging 75.

Chicago is nice.  Everyone here lives for the summer.  Some days it can get really humid, but the wind does a good job of making it bearable.

Winters... not so much.  But thanks to global warming, they haven't been too bad for about ten years or so (it used to be below zero for most of January, now it's usually around 20-30 degrees).

Portland Oregon (actually Hillsboro - a suburb to the west) here. Our hottest average high temperatures of the year are 82, but you know how averages go. The hottest temperature ever recorded in Portland is around 107. Currently we're supposed to be around 80 and it hasn't been far off that mark.

I grew up on the Monterey Peninsula in CA, and so I like cool, cloudy weather (summers there are 65 and clouds). I absolutely love it when October rolls around in Oregon and the highs plummet from the low 70's to the upper 50's. Only three months to go....  icon_biggrin

Humidity is hardly ever a factor here. Just a few days ago it was a bit warm with higher than normal humidity, but it's never anything like you poor people in the south put up with, so if you ever hear anyone from my area whining about it, just slap them.

As for winter, the coldest average day's high temp is 45. Our average yearly snowfall is seven inches, and we've been consistently below that for a few years now (a couple years with no snowfall at all, but Mt. Hood is an hour away with all the snow you could ever want). When we have a cold spell (near or below freezing) blow through it's almost always accompanied with completely dry weather. I've been in the Portland area about 16 years now, and can't remember it ever getting below 15 degrees.

Portland is a really mellow place to live when it comes to weather.

Here in San Bernardino CA it can get as cold as around 30 degrees in the winter and as hot as 115-120 degrees in the summer. The record has to be around 125 degrees set a few years ago.

Aye.  I live in the Coronado historical district in downtown Phoenix (NORTH of I-10, thankyouverymuch) and the winters are just perfect.  From November through usually April, it's beyond pleasant.  Right now, not so much.  At least those in the east/west valley get rain.

Atlanta's summers are mostly in the 90s to 100s with high humidity and daily afternoon rain showers. Pretty brutal, but the winter (my first Atlanta winter after 30+ Chicago ones) was mostly in the 40s, with nary a flake of snow to be found. That more than made up for the burning death of summer.

It's been a mild summer for the most part here in DC. Its mostly been mid-high eighties with some nineties thrown in for much of July. June was simliar, but we had two weeks of straight mid-high nineties and a couple days around 100-all of this is typical for DC swamp weather. Where I am moving has been in the low to mid 80s with nary rain insight according to weather.com for the last 4 weeks, with evenings in the mid 60s. Cannot freaking wait to live there.

We've actually had a rather temperate summer in Connecticut.  I haven't been precisely tracking things, but I'd estimate that we've averaged 75-85F for daytime highs with moderate humidity.  The last couple days have been on the warmer side of that and pretty muggy, but most days are quite comfortable.

Most summers are more like high 80s-to-mid 90s with moderate to high humidity.  Those temperatures are where I'll start to get concerned about running my computer or gaming console for too long without an air conditioner to bring down the room temperature, but I'm outdoors a lot more often so that rarely factors in anyhow.  I will start running the A/C at night so I can get some sleep, though.  icon_cool

Like Jarrod said--Missouri is hot and humid in the summer today they are calling for 90F with 90% humidity and it hasn't rained all week and the winters here suck because we are usually on the freeze line and get ICE....good stuff....last winter we didn't have power for about 2 weeks.  The temp in the house droped to around 34F.  On the plus side the food didn't spoil...nothing like mother nature refridgeration (just didn't have a way to cook it so why take the chance).  Yeah it SUCKED!

Yeah, but Ed came from Denver so he's used to cold.

As for Texas, it's usually in the high 90s low to mid-100's from June through September but this year has been different. For the first six months of the year it rained pretty much non stop. This coming after two years of record drought. As such, we've only hit the high 90s within the last two weeks and maybe hit 100 once.

It's freaking my shit out.

the summer here in hartford has definitely been pretty mild.  my only complaint recently is that it's either been hot and muggy, or raining on the weekends.  the weather tends to be great during the week, but every time i've had a chance to enjoy some time outside, we've gotten rain to put a damper on things.

After my two weeks in Houston in early July, I don't think anything Chicago can throw at me will seem hot.  It was like being crushed by a big boot of humidity, and smacked upside the head by the sun.

We ususally have several 100 F days around here in the summer.  Here is SW of Houston about 60 miles about 45 miles from the coast.  It's been very cloudy and rainy all summer and we haven't been above 90 much.  Still 90 degress with 90% humidity is damn hot.

In winter we usually have a handful of morning that are freezing or below.  Usually about 25 F for the coldest morning of winter, but it's been as low as about 7 F before.

We don't have much autumn around here.  It's still in the 90s in October and sometimes November too.

I'm in Phoenix, so I know the Summers can blaze (120'F a couple days a year tho avg is prolly like 108), but the Winters are very nice. Typical hi on Christmas day is 60'F. The 5 weeks of "humidity" brought on by our monsoons is kind of gross, but those wonderful rainshowers are so nice.

It can get up over 100 here in Pittsburgh, Pa but usually in the summer it is around 90, which is way too hot.  Once it gets over 65 I am uncomfortable, over 75 and I am miserable.

SF is basically 60 degrees F year round.  It can fluctuate 30 degrees or so either way, but doesn't do so often.  And if you go about 10 miles south, it can easily be 20 degrees hotter than SF.

And if you commute into the city from 25 miles north, the temperature delta between the Sunset and North Marin can be 40 degrees in the summer...
