Can you sum up the weather where you live in just five words?

Asked by erichw1504 (26433points) March 31st, 2011

Ah, the weather. Always a hot topic anywhere you go.

Hate it or love it, can you sum up the weather in your area with just five words? Give it some thought, creativity, and meaning. Let us know what to expect if we ever pass by.

Name the town, city, state, whatever then give a summary in five words.

Southwestern Illinois: tornado warning once a week…

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

NE Ohio : erratic, extreme, and always humid.

@erichw1504 no lie, that is exactly what I was going to say.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

It is 35 where I live.

Hopefully you’ll let contractions count as one word:
Central Ohio- don’t like weather? It’ll change!

Kyushu, Japan: summers are humid; winters dry.

12Oaks's avatar

Chicagoland. Unseasonably cool this past decade.

jballzz's avatar

Cranston, Rhode Island. The most bipolar weather ever.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@GracieT I love that, we say that all the time around here. So true.

bobbinhood's avatar

Holy crap! That’s a list and a half of topics!

I’m about to move to Montana. There, it’s: often cold but always unpredictable.

erichw1504's avatar

@EVERYONE, just to let you know it can be a summarization of your current weather or how it generally is year round.

erichw1504's avatar

@bobbinhood That’s how I roll.

Everyday can be any season.
it can literally be 32, go up to 80 and drop to 40. we keep jackets in our car

Seelix's avatar

@Jay484 – Oh, for sure, there’s snow in Southern Ontario, just not in downtown TO. I’m right smack in the middle of downtown, and it’s honestly hilarious to watch the Bay Street people freak out about walking in 2 cm of snow on the sidewalk :)

This Sudbury girl is no slouch when it comes to real winter!

Jay484's avatar

@Seelix lol that would be funny to see. its just last week i got fed up with the snow when it was 12 dregees out and i woke up the next moring with snow on the ground! i was pissed

Bay Area (specifically the western area):
Warm summers, rainy winters. Temperate.

Nope. Think a few years earlier

PhiNotPi's avatar

South Carolina: Our weather is very… indifferent.

erichw1504's avatar

Nope. It’s a movie.

Upstate NY: Weather is too damn cold!

@tinyfaery L.A. Story

If it’s not that, I know I’ve seen it

Wait, It has to be!!!

tinyfaery's avatar

@SpatzieLover for the win. I LOVE that movie.

janbb's avatar

@Dr_Dredd I love the “Rent is Too Damn High” guy!

SpatzieLover's avatar

@tinyfaery So do I…it took me a while to remember which of my fav comedic actors performed as a weatherman ;)

Fancy name for hell’s gateway.

Jude's avatar

Chilly, but, from my window, I can see the sun setting over the river.

filmfann's avatar

Concord, California Spring is finally fucking here.

Bellatrix's avatar

Beautiful, idyllic, mostly reliable, boring.

philosopher's avatar

Cold, damp, lousy, not like Spring.

Jude's avatar

lol. Obviously, I didn’t read the question thoroughly.

Chilly, bring on the sexytime.

perspicacious's avatar

Now it is:
cool, cloudy, overcast, normal Springtime

Eastern Washington

Meego's avatar

4 seasons. unpredictable. extreme. continental.
Southwestern Ontario

Bellatrix's avatar

Like you @Jude, I didn’t read the question properly either.

Queensland, Idyllic, two seasons, bit boring.

(possibly only boring to me because I miss @Meego‘s four seasons).

Or as a haiku:
Snowmageddon, nine hours in traffic
Cherry blossom tourists, fanny packs and jorts
Wilting heat, bus lacks AC

Blink! Was that just summer?

Cold, warm, HOT, rain, snow. The whole shebang!

DarlingRhadamanthus's avatar

West of London, East of Wales: Wet, damp usually. But a great and gorgeous spring this year. Daffys are blooming, crop circles are forming, rape fields are ablaze in yellow, all’s right with the world. :)

Rape Field (not my photos, by the way): link
Crop Circle 2011:link

Coloma's avatar


Gorgeous, I love our springs here, by summers can get blazing hot.
Should I say ‘bloody’ hot. haha

I used to tell my ex-husband who had a receding hairline that his crop circle was widening. lol
Nice nights though. :-)

Meego's avatar

Hmmm is that crop circle a sign of an up and coming biohazard? Or a really cute bear? Great now were fcuked either way! A series of unfortunate events unfolds 

DarlingRhadamanthus's avatar

@Coloma….LOL! Thanks for the giggle for the day…!

@Meego,...Well I’ll just say this…a bit of preparation is always a good thing. Look at the people of Joplin, totally blindsided. They may not have been able to prevent what happened, but some emergency supplies on hand are always good to have. I’ve been through some natural disasters and so I’ve learned the heard way.

john65pennington's avatar


Coloma's avatar

Today it is HOT!

98 predicted.

The nights have been awesome though, the summer star gazing is just awesome up here! :-)
