"Nice" weather may differ depending on taste (some people just can't get enough of an all-day thunderstorm). The Washington Post has applied its own definition—including at least partial sun, temperate thermometer readings, gentle breezes, no rain or snow, and not much humidity—and looked at which major US cities can claim the most, and least, number of pleasant days per year. Here, the top five cities that will make you never want to head indoors (they're all in one state), plus the number of nice days you can expect from each:

  1. Long Beach, Calif.; 210
  2. Los Angeles; 182
  3. San Diego; 178
  4. San Jose, Calif.; 170
  5. Oakland, Calif.; 138
Read on for the cities that could use a weather boost.

  1. Anchorage, Alaska; 20
  2. Honolulu, Hawaii; 31
  3. Brownsville, Texas; 32
  4. Corpus Christi, Texas; 36
  5. Wichita, Kan.; 38
