When I was growing up in South Carolina, there was an old saying that the older folks in church used to say in the summer time. “I’m sure glad I’m a Christian, cause if hell’s any hotter than this”.  What they mean of course is, it’s hot.  How hot will it get in Charlotte this summer?  The experts predict how hot it will get in Charlotte this summer.

According to MSN via the Charlotte Observer, it will be sizzling and oppresive. We reportedly can expect the usual thunderstorms and humidity.  Oh great!  This will be nothing new, we got plenty hot last year.  The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said it was the third hottest summer since 1928 in 2022.  This year may be the same.

This will be something to keep in mind if you are planning to plant a garden this year.  It also may alter your vacation plans.  The mountains are sounding pretty good right about now.  I’m not sure I have enough pool money saved up yet so I might just have to stay inside.  I’m too pretty to wilt in this heat;) To learn more about what kind of weather we can expect in Charlotte, get details right here.

Charlotte Tops The List Of Cheapest Cities To Live Based On Weather

The cost of living in Charlotte is increasing, especially if you’re in an area like Southend or Plaza Midwood. But compared to other cities we are still doing pretty well. And while the perfect weather is subjective, you have to admit Charlotte’s weather is pretty great. We get all 4 seasons, avoid a harsh winter, are typically spared from hurricanes, and aren’t located in tornado alley. That might be why Charlotte topped the list of cheapest cities to live with the best weather.

The study was conducted by real estate data source PropertyShark. They looked at the US cities with a population of more than 150,000 residents. Those cities were then ranked by housing expenses and climate, including the number of clear days yearly, the number of days with extreme temperatures, as well as rain and wind.

And Charlotte came in first on the list of cheapest cities to live! Two other NC cities made the list which is probably due to the state’s climate. So the next time you complain about the weather (which I did this morning) just remember we have it much better than other parts of the country.
