Wednesday looks like a real winner for the Northeast part of the country. Perfect 10s from New York to Maine including: Boston, Portland, Montpelier, and Syracuse. A secondary area of perfect weather in the Magic Valley of Idaho including Twin Falls. Rhode Island’s small size propels them to the best weather state.
Best: 1. Rhode Island 2. Massachusetts 3. New York 4. New Hampshire 5. Connecticut
Worst: 1. Illinois 2. Florida 3. Virginia 4. Iowa 5. Missouri
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
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.

Tuesday’s mean of 7.5 for the nation will be one of the highest since early summer. Most of the amazing weather will be from Maine to North Carolina, but also out in Oregon. One of the advantages of being a small homogenous state is that if the weather is good, chances are the entire state will have a high mean. This is certainly the case for Delaware which tops the list tomorrow, but the opposite can be said for poor weather days. Willmington will be squarely in the middle of a perfect 10 as well but also Andrewsville in southern Delaware. Tuesday also marks the first day I have ever seen
New York, New York
New York, New York as a perfect 10. (I tried to find a more unique image of New York) Also, many of the suburbs of of northern New Jersey will be perfect as well. In upstate New York perfect 10’s include: Binghamton, Utica, Fort Drum, Norwich and Cortland. In New England, some of the bigger locations with 10’s include: Burlington, Vermont…Hartford, Connecticut…Springfield, Massachusetts…and Concord, New Hampshire.
Out West, numerous perfect 10’s in Oregon include: Burns, Richland, Summer Lake, Crescent, and Blue River. A few others: Catnip Mountain, Nevada…Jackpot, Nevada…Pepperwood, California…Gonzales, California…Goodrich, Idaho and Eagle, Idaho.
Best 1. Delaware 2. Connecticut 3. New York 4. New Jersey 5. Pennsylvania
Worst 1. Alaska 2. Arizona 3. Florida 4. Kansas 5. Colorado
Monday August 6th, 2012
Could this be the first sign of summer beginning to lose it’s grip on the nation? A cold front sweeping through from New England to the Ohio Valley today will bring much cooler and drier weather to the Midwest and Great Lake States Monday. All of the really hot and sticky weather will be relegated to the Deep South from Louisiana to Georgia. This makes the national mean jump to 6.6 on Monday with Michigan leading the way. More importantly, I have not seen PWI 7’s and 8’s in Missouri and Kentucky for example, in a very long time. Surprisingly, perfect 10’s are few on Monday with most in far southwest New York and along the Northern
Jamestown, New York
California coast. My picks for tomorrow include: Jamestown, New York…Brocton, New York…and North East, Pennsylvania. Out in California, some perfect 10’s include: Bridgeville and Whitehorn.
1. Michigan 1. Alaska
2. Ohio 2. Alabama
3. New York 3. Louisiana
4. Pennsylvania 4. Mississippi
5. Wisconsin 5. Georgia
