CLIMATE


The Climate Table and Temperature Range Chart from this page provide city climate and environment data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Will it be a cool and dry spot in the mountains or a warm and breezy place by the sea? Each person has their own idea about climate. Indeed, climate is the most important factor for many who are considering relocation or retirement.

Our climate rankings are based on a simple formula that compares our 99+ cities and towns in average temperature highs/lows, temperature ranges and annual precipitation.
