Want to know which American cities are the most pleasant? Pleasant meaning cities having the most mean temperature days of between 55 and 75. Software designer, Kelly Norton made an interative map with data from NOAA and found the five most pleasant cities are: Los Angeles, San Diego, Oxnard, Simi Valley and San Francisco.
Whoa. California Dreaming. Surprised about San Francisco because the times I've been there it has been fairly chilly even in summer.
The least pleasant cities are: McAllister Montana, Northeast of Reno Nevada (I wonder if Northeast of Reno is the actual city name, Clancy Montana, Douglas Wyoming, and another wierd city name, East of Cedarville California.
The link has the map and my laying your cursor on any circle you'll get the mean average of pleasant days per year. St. Louis gets 47 or 50, the map has two bubbles for St. Louis. Chicago has more pleasant days than St. Louis.
