Most Pleasant Places

Designer and software engineer Kelly Norton has produced a map to find the greatest number of pleasant days in the year around the continental US. Her definition:

“pleasant” here means the mean temperature was between (55° F and 75° F), the minimum temperature was above 45° F, the maximum temperature was below 85° F and there was no significant precipitation or snow depth.
You can roll the cursor over the map and reveal bar charts of the number of pleasant days by month. Although it may be positively correlated with temperature, I think a big omission from this definition of "pleasant" is a measure of humidity. via
