How to Enjoy Perfect Weather Year Round
It may be summer now, but as they say on Game of Thrones, winter is coming—and bringing ice, freezing rain, thunder snow, and all sorts of awful combinations along with it.
But no one needs to suffer through another miserable winter thanks to a new tool.
Perpetual Temperature, is an interactive map that will ensure a year of perfect weather, so long as you’re willing to travel around the globe to find it. The map was created by developer Chris Reade back in 2013, but some great winter-loving conspiracy buried the news. (Blame the snow tire and mitten manufacturing industries, perhaps.)
The map is set to chart a course around the world based on a monthly mean temperature of 72ºF (22ºC), which according to Canadian Geographic, is the temperature some medical experts believe to be ideal for the human body.
If a year of 72-degree weather sounds right to you, Perpetual Temperature recommends heading to Paradise, California, for the rest of July, moving on to Klagetoh, Arizona, for August, spending the fall traipsing between Arkansas, Florida, and Arizona, before ringing in the New Year on Molokai, in the Hawaiian archipelago.
If you prefer sweater weather all the time, just move the map’s slider down and it will chart out the perfect place to sip your pumpkin spice latte in March (assuming Turkmenistan has a Starbucks) or in July (Cold Bay, Alaska).
If you prefer to spend your Novembers in a swimsuit, move the slider to a balmy 85 degrees and chart a path from the Lukunoch Atoll in Micronesia to American Samoa’s Pago Pago. You may scoff at the concept now, but wait until the thunder snow rolls in.
