Most severe season?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I live in NE Ohio, and our winters can be cold and snowy, and our summers can be hot and humid. I think the worst I remember is wind chill factors of -25 F and 2 feet of snow. Summers are for the most part ok, but it can reach on occasion 90+F and humid as heck. (Yuck) What are your summer and winters like in your part of the world??

During the summer, I just want to hibernate in an air-condioned palace! The average daytime temp is in the upper-90s, but with our extreme humidity, it feels about 10 degrees warmer. It is crazy and no good for the hair either!
Winters here are great. Avg. temp is about 50-55 in the daytime, and ususally upper 30s at night. For a polar bear like me, it's faboo!
Susie, I'd like to spend winter in Ohio- sounds great to me (though I'd probably change my mind after having to dig my car out from under the snow every morning!)

Ooooooo... -25ºF... Cry me a river! Just kidding! Our winters always get as cold as -40ºF (same as -40ºC) and sometimes even slightly lower, but with windchill it can get to even lower yet... -90ºF on the rare ocassion. In summer it can get up to 90º with humidity, but that doesn't last long.

Crappy. no just kidding, we have rainy/foggy/icy/windy winters from Nov 1 to March or so, and then summer is very dry and very sunny, about 78-80 from end of May through September.

Dont' give the wrong impression here Ryan. It really depends on which area of the country you live in. In the Toronto area it's actually quite decent weather in the winter. A couple of days it might go to -15C or so (with windchill can feel like -25C) but not really bad at all and usually not a whole lot of snow. Now the prairies I understand can be bitterly cold and Vancouver is just rain, rain, rain and more rain!

Yep, I live on the prairies, so it's a lot different from Toronto and Vancouver.

Overall we have pretty mild weather here in Colorado. People think of the ski resorts and think we are under a blanket of snow all winter...not true! Winter, I think the average is about 40-45*F, lows in the 20s. We do get some snow, but unless it is a huge snow it is gone within 2-5 days. Summers aren't bad either. 80s or so for temps, lows in the 40-50s. Of course we do get the occassional cold snap in the winter, but anything below 0 usually only lasts for a couple days. And we get a heat wave in the summer, but it's rare that we have 100+ days like ever. I think a couple summers ago was a record breaker with 5-100*+ days. And the best part - very low humidity! Heck, I've seen it raining and humidity at 60% or less! LOL

I live in the sf bay area, the late summers/early fall can get HOT! Like 100's. The spring and late Fall are ideal, like God's country. Right now we are in the late 60's early 70's and sunny. This time of year is why you put up with high cost of living in the bay area.

Winter is pretty moderate but the last few years we have had a lot of rain. But never very cold. Californians are wimps about rain or cold, you should hear the whining, it cracks me up.

I second that! Except our summers can reach 100 or more during the day then at night throw in the skeeters!!! Needless to say, I don't do much outside if it doesn't involve swimming from say the middle of May to October!

The end of Sept. & August are the worst here! If I had a chance, I'd move every year for at least those 2 months!

All jokes aside, when I walk to the end of the drive to check the mail and back to the house, I need to change my shirt! I also get "heat headaches" from being in the heat even for 5 min. Does anyone else?

Hey Susie, I'm in the Ohio Valley, that funky area where KY meets OH and IN?

Anyways here in Florence, KY (greater Cincinnati area) the winters are like you describe altho probably not as severe. We got slammed by a Christmas storm last year; 20 inches I think? We get ice storms and cold temps, only part of the time are the wind chills that bad. Normally it's quite bearable and the winters here, *IMHO*, are beautiful! There's something beautiful about the savagry of wintertime itself. "Stay inside and drink hot cocoa and snuggle"... =-)

SUMMER... being in a valley we have the worst allergies here. My daughter just started suffering from allergies last year; she's swollen shut this morning, her poor eyes. People walk around all high on Benedryl and Allegra around here. Our Springs are bootiful too with everything coming to life but bein' in a valley... all that pollen, mold and well... pollution... "smog alerts" will be starting in about 2 months... Summers are very very humid (walk outside and your breath just STOPS... ), hot, sometimes it can get to around 100 ... 1999 was the worst Summer that I remember in a long time.

We get droughts here, water conservation warnings, etc. during Summer. Then, we'll get hit with a huge rainstorm that will swell the Ohio River & the streets and well the water warnings are off.

The best season in Cincinnati is by far Autumn. No more humidity, leaves changing colors, pumpkin & apple festivals, cool nights & cool days... just lovely!

True, it doesn't get that cold or snow tons here (but you wouldn't know it when our last mayor called in the army to take care of it! ), but when it does get hot in the summer, man, is it sweltering! Whew... I can't handle the humidity! It was actually slightly humid yesterday... I have a feeling we're in for a hot summer.

I'd say the summers here in Los Angeles range from the 80's to 100's. Also, it depends whether you live in the Valley where ist's hotter, or the beaches where it's cooler. There is rarely any humidity, and really doesn't rain very often from April to November. It's usually Sunny every day, however in late May and June, we have what we call the June Gloom, where there is a cloud layer in the early morning that burns off by about 11am.

In the winter, the temps can ramge from the 70's to the 50's. It rains in the winter, but not usually every day, but when it rains, it rains. When it's not raining, it's beautiful. The air is crisp and clear with no smog, and the skies are blue.

I love every season here for different reasons. My least favorite season is summer, because it is too hot. We really only have two major seasons in my opinion, Sunny season and Rainy season.

We don't get much sever weather here...though I could do without the cold, wet winters. I have arthritis in my knees and it gets really bad in the winter.
I live in a river valley, too, so it's usually good and humid...yuck!!
I'm tempted sometimes to move to the desert where it's DRY. lol Humans are much better adapted for dry heat than for humid cold. Death Valley, here I come! lol

Here in Wellington, New Zealand our Summers average 25ºC with hot sun, but lots of wind! somtimes it can reach 35ºC though. Our winters average 10ºC, but at night time can get as cold as -2ºC on average here in Wellington we are pretty lucky.

I love the weather here in Florida! In the winter the temps can be very variable, ranging from somewhere in the low 80's in early to December to the 20's late at night! Generally it sticks to somewhere between 50-60 though for the majority of the winter. I actually hate winter and being a true Florida born and raised girl I get cold SUPER easily. If it's 60 out I'm complaining. The summers here can be very hot and humid! Temps are generally in the 80s and 90s all of the way through August. However, in Ormond Beach (where I was born and raised and my parents still live) it's a few degrees cooler than here in Orlando since the beach is right there creating a wonderful seabreeze. This month the weather has been in the 70s and 80s and I can't tell you how happy I am that tanning season is back!

Oh, and contrary to popular belief, we really aren't struck by hurricanes all that much. Last year (and perhaps even this year) mother nature has been balancing herself out. For a number of years Florida had been threatened by a very low number of hurricanes, and due to that, we're experiencing a MUCH higher than normal rate of hurricane threats. Nature always has a way of balancing itself out. I just get tired of hearing people say, "I could never live in Florida, I wouldn't want to go through hurricanes every year!!!" All I have to say to that is that I'm 22, and in 22 years the hurricanes of last year were the FIRST I have EVER been through!

Ah, yes, but you don't have to shovel rain. To be sure, there is lots of rain, but the sun does come out. Temps seldom go more than a couple of degrees below freezing, and many winters we get away with no snow. This one was a "bad" one: we had an accumulation of about 6 inches that lasted the best part of two weeks. Aw gee! And otherwise, it's been mild and quite sunny and dry (wait until summer, when we get hit with water restrictions because the reservoirs are too low ). Summers are warm and dry. Temps at most into the low 30s C, but mostly upper 20s, and cooling nicely overnight -- no fighting for a night's sleep.

I lived in the Fairfield/Vacaville area for 6 years & remember it got so hot the Freeway buckled!(I-80) One of the concrete slabs had lifted up several inches & backed up traffic for miles..
But I'm back in Florida, & things are just starting to heat up! Right now, it's beautiful. Our winters can be cold, usually dry, some people like it more than others. I'm a lizard-I prefer the heat!
