A down day for perfect weather Sunday as there is a noticeable lack of 10s on the map. Colorado has the highest mean but just barely reaches 8/10. There is one exception which is parts of interior and western Alaska. Some perfect weather in mainly unpopulated areas, but the largest town is McGrath. Southern Alaska though quite the opposite which helps keep the state’s mean at 6.5. Louisiana and New York share the worst weather today.
Scattered perfect weather mainly in the mountainous areas of the West and in the Appalachians. Also, a small area lining Lake Superior in Minnesota and Wisconsin including Duluth. Overall, West Virginia comes out on top for the first time this year while Vermont, as has often been the case this year, comes out on the bottom.
Best: 1. West Virginia 2. Michigan 3. Ohio 4. Oregon 5. Idaho
Worst: 1. Vermont 2. Florida 3. Maine 4. Louisiana 5. North Dakota
Wisconsin starts the month of June nearly perfect with a mean PWI score of 9.6! The 10s also extend into Minnesota and Iowa. Florida ends up on the bottom as heat, humidity, and thunderstorms take over in the summer. And for the first time this year, 9s appear in the interior of Alaska near Fairbanks and McGrath.
The monthly total for May are in! The overall best state was California and this is the state with the best location in the country. And that location is: Camanche Reservoir which is about 40 miles SE of Sacramento. The worst state was Vermont, just beating out Maine. And the worst location was Mt. Washington, NH, a notoriously bad weather site.
A very large area of perfect weather can be found today from North Dakota all the way to Illinois. This includes the Fargo, ND…Sioux Falls, SD…Ames, IA…and Springfield, Il. Overall, Iowa comes out with a record 9.5, the highest for a state this year. Clouds and cool temperatures keeps Maine on the bottom today, but not a lot of really bad weather on the map today.
