Perfect weather is still missing from the map Monday as winter really takes hold of the country. Louisiana will see the best weather as a whole Monday, followed closely by Texas. Really awful weather in the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies as snow, wind and rain dominate. Even down in Hawaii the PWI will be held down by some clouds and rain.
Best: 1. Louisiana 2. Texas 3. Mississippi 4. Oklahoma 5. Arkansas
Worst: 1. Oregon 2. Idaho 3. Washington 4. New Hampshire 5. Wyoming

A relatively calm day expected across the nation tomorrow as reflected in the muted contrast in the Perfect Weather Index. The standout tomorrow will be Texas with a mean of 7.3 followed by Arizona. Actually, southern Arizona will see the best weather in the nation with lots of PWI 9’s and even some 10’s. Most of the 10’s occur in the remote Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range, so not many people will get to enjoy it. Runner up is Scottsdale, Arizona.
At the bottom is Alaska…by far, but what do you expect this time of year?
Best: 1. Texas 2. Arizona 3. Louisiana 4. Mississippi 5. Hawaii
Worst: 1. Alaska 2. Idaho 3. Oregon 4. Montana 5. South Carolina
May 10th, 2012
Not quite as nice as yesterday with the mean PWI down just a hair (still a PWI 7), but another brilliant weather day for most of the country. There are two areas of perfect 10’s tomorrow May 10th, 2012. The first is in north-central Missouri around the town of Dalton. The second area lies along the border of Tennessee and Alabama. A couple of good picks here would be New Market, Tennessee and Woodville, Alabama. Overall, Missouri scores the best with an 8.98 followed closely by Illinois. Poor Maine just can’t catch a break this week and again has the lowest score (mean 3.3) and up to another inch of rain for parts of the state. Although, Montana will see the largest area of low PWI , only the far eastern plains prevents the entire state from being the low point in the country (mean 3.9). Surprisingly cold, wind, and wet in west Texas tomorrow produces some low scores there as well, though they really need the rain.
