Downtown Charleston South Carolina Skyline Aerial.

Maybe you are contemplating relocating this year. Or maybe you want a new go-to vacation spot. Either way, you are probably calculating the weather in some states to see what it’s like. Some people like to plan their vacations based on the average weather in the area during that time of year. I have a winter birthday and tend to book trips to destinations that are warmer so I can get a feel for summer during my birthday. Some people would prefer it to feel pretty close to summer or at least not too cold, all year round.

Current Results knows how much people care about a destination having great weather year-round. So, they calculated a list of states with the best weather year-round. Shockingly, both the Carolinas made the top 10. I guess when you think about it, even when we’re cold down here it is not half as bad as the northern winter areas. To make the list, the states meet the following criteria:

  • Comfortable temperatures, with daily highs averaging between 63 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit for at least half of the year
  • Dry weather, at most 60 in. of rain a year
  • Mainly clear skies, with sunshine for at least 60% of daylight time on a yearly average

Check out the list below to see where the Carolinas fall compared to other states.
