What U.S. City Has the Most Variable Weather of All?

8 Dec 2014, 10:04 pm

Virtually everyone in the U.S. likes to coin the saying “if you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes” and apply it to their own city. Nate Silver’s statistics and research-driven website FiveThirtyEight.Com decided to take a look at which city in the United States can actually correctly claim to be home to the most unpredictable weather in America.

The winner? Rapid City, South Dakota. With average highs below 40º in January and soaring into the mid-80s during the summer, along with snowstorms, severe weather and strong winds, Silver’s study crowned the city in the Black Hills as the ‘winner’ of his contest.

Kansas City, Missouri ranked top amongst top-50 U.S. metro area populations.
