The Weather Outside is Frightful…in These U.S. Metro Areas

FRIDAY, DEC 10, 2021

Everyone says it: If you don’t like the weather, stick around and it will change. A Social Explorer analysis of weather data compiled by Easy Analytic Software Inc., however, finds the weather in more than two dozen wintry U.S. metro areas ranges from bad to worse when compared to national averages. On a scale of 0 to 200 – with 100 being the national average – Anchorage, Alaska, and Berlin, N.H., were given a score of zero by the analytics provider.

Juneau and Ketchikan, both in the rainy southeast of Alaska, were given a score of one. Augusta, Maine; Bangor, Maine; Escanaba, Mich.; Houghton, Mich.; and Marquette, Mich., received a score of two. Fairbanks, Alaska, and Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., hardly fared better, with a score of three. Seven California metros were assigned a score of 200 – El Centro, Hanford, Oxnard, Riverside, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara.
