A small ribbon of perfect weather Thursday on the south end of Lake Michigan and the south end of Lake Ontario. The cool water temperatures of the lakes moderates the air temperatures but the best weather occurs about 5-10 miles inland. Close to the lake, too cool, further away from the lake, too warm. This “Goldilocks” zone includes Gary, IN and Rochester, NY. Overall, Indiana will be best while a storm in the Pacific Northwest lands Oregon on the bottom.
Best: 1. Indiana 2. Massachusetts 3. Connecticut 4. Rhode Island 5. Illinois
Worst: 1. Oregon 2. Washington 3. Florida 4. California 5. Alaska
