Summary:
Do you dream of a place that is always sunny? Where the temperature is perfect? Where there is virtually no severe weather? A new article attempts to name the top ten places in the world that continually experience the best weather.

Do you dream of a place that is always sunny? Where the temperature is perfect? Where there is virtually no severe weather? Ed Darack has. His article, "The 10 Best Weather Places in the World," featured in the March/April issue of Weatherwise magazine attempts to name the top ten places in the world that continually experience the best weather.

Darack defines what "best" weather consists of. The basis of this list is founded in weather that has positive effects on human fundamental needs (physical, mental, and emotional). "We can determine meteorological "best" criteria for ideal human physical, mental, and emotional health that includes temperature, humidity, average number of sunny days, and other criteria, by studying the results of research conducted on environmental effects on humans." With this in mind Darack creates a mythical place of weather perfection, 'Anthro-Weathertopia'. Here the temperature never strays too far from 68F, the humidity is always comfortably 50%, and the clouds are never a threat. Unfortunately this perfect place does not exist, but his article lists the top ten places that come close.

The Manjimup region of the extreme south west region of Western Australia ranks at number ten on the list. It is a piece of lush land off the southern Indian Ocean. In February, the average summer temperature clocks in at 81F during the day and 56.1F at night. In the winter, the coldest month, July, records an average temperature high of 58F and low of 43.5F. There is an average rainfall of 39 inches per year. The only drawback is that, although rarely, the Manjimup region does experience extended periods of cold and rain.

Number six on the list is one of the most comfortable weather cities on the planet, Lisbon, Portugal. Lisbon, located on the Atlantic coast of Portugal, experiences moderate temperature throughout the year. In August, the warmest month, the daily average temperature is 82.9F with a mean nighttime low of 65.5F. January, the coldest month, Lisbon experiences a daily high on 58.6F and a nighttime low of 46.9F. The yearly average rainfall is 30.5 inches.

Next we visit the northwestern coast of Morocco, which stands at number three. The cold currents of the Atlantic Ocean provide little season variability and extremely mild temperatures year round. The heart of this region is Casablanca which records an average daily high of 63F and a mean evening low of 45F. The average rainfall in December, the wettest month, only comes to 5.75 inches and less than .5 inches in July, the driest. In addition, the northwestern coast almost never experiences any type of severe weather.
