Hi. I am trying to determine the town in NE with the best weather. I am
taking "best weather" here to mean the area with the most number of
clear, sunny, warm days. I looked at various weather sites on the web
but couldn't find an easy way to access this data.

Anything that is worth doing is not easy.

This is going to be pretty tough. The best place to get historical
weather data that I know of is http://www.wunderground.com. You can get
historical weather data for any particular place.

Colating it will be a real job, though.

Defining your terms will be tough enough. Is a clear, sunny, 92 degree
day your idea of "best weather"? It wouldn't be mine. :-)

Maybe you can pick 5 or so locations and take a random sample of weather
data (maybe 10 or so days through spring-summer-fall) and investigate
the weather on particular dates though the years. That would be
relatively easy on wunderground.

Good luck!

That is a good point, Steve... what is "best" weather?

Mine for spring/summer/fall would be a partly sunny day (blue skies,
scudding white cumulus) at 76 degrees with low humidity.

Southwest New Hampshire, near Monadnock. Pick your elevation in that region
to fine tune/customize results. About the 1200 ft level for me, Hancock,
Antrim, etc.
