*Sperling’s Best Places collected the average high and low temperatures for every day of the year. Their “comfort index”(10=best) uses the number of days annually where the high temperature fell within the commonly accepted comfort range of 70-80 degrees. Plus, they penalized places which are not only hot, but hot and sticky, using summer dew point values.
**The UV Index is a measure of an area’s exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This is most often a combination of sunny weather, altitude, and latitude.
