Compare Climate

Moving to a new city or state can be an exciting and challenging experience. It can be an excellent opportunity to explore a new place and meet new people. It can also be a bit overwhelming, as you'll need to adjust to a new environment and learn your way around.

There are many factors to consider when looking to move. Is it colder in the winter compared to where you are now? What is the annual rain and snow pattern? Our Climate and Weather Calculator allows you to make accurate comparisons of the weather and climate in any two cities in the United States.

Weather vs. Climate - What's The Difference?

Climate is the average weather conditions in an area over a long period of time; weather is the current conditions in an area. The climate of an area can be very different from the weather. For example, the climate in Florida is warm and sunny most of the time, but the weather can be cold and rainy. It is important to research the climate conditions of a place before moving to ensure you will be comfortable with the weather for the majority of the year. We estimate how many days per year the weather may be comfortable for an average person. If you’d like to define your own comfort conditions, use our exclusive Dwellics City Ranking Calculator.

The most crucial factor in calculating climate is geography. The location of a city will determine its climate. For example, a city located in the northern section of the United States will generally have a cooler climate than a city located in the southern U.S., and humidity tends to be higher in the South and East than in the Western states. Other important factors include altitude, latitude, and proximity to bodies of water, deserts, mountains, and forests.

omparing the weather of the two cities is a more difficult task. Weather refers to day-to-day atmospheric conditions and can be affected by various factors, including the climate, geography, and season. For example, Ohio experiences more rainfall than Colorado, but Colorado experiences more snowfall.

How Does Dwellics Compare Two Cities?

Dwellics uses comparative climatic data. Comparing the average temperatures for a location does not reveal much, considering a climate of 95 degrees Fahrenheit may be considered equally uncomfortable to 25 degrees. In this respect, Dwellics takes data and considers how many days per year someone feels comfortable. This includes many different factors, such as comparing temperature, humidity, wind, annual rainfall, and snow cover.
