Even thought it will be Winter in America from Decmeber to Feburary, is it different weather in each state?

I live in Australia, and am planning a trip to America, but the only time i can go is late Decemeber of this year.. But i realised this is thier WINTER! Im worried that the whole time im over there it will be raining and ruin the trip!

Does any one know if in thier Winter it is differnet weather types in every state?

I heard New York is always cold? BUT in L.A it never rains? Is this even true?

Thank you for any help you can give :)

    Being an Aussie (we LOVE your accent) you will probably come to the west coast of the U.S. Winter in the western states, California Oregon, and Washington will be mild to cool during the day, and chilly over night. New York and Los Angeles are roughly 3000 miles apart. You will probably spend most of your visit in the western U.S.

    Most flights from Australia land at either Los Angeles, or San Francisco. Neither city gets freezing cold during winter. Winter is the "rainy" season in L.A., but it doesn't actually rain that often, and what L.A. calls rain would be called a light drizzle in other states.

    Cross the Rocky Mountains, and winter will be very cold in most states there, except those directly along the Gulf of Mexico (Florida, Texas, etc). Don't allow winter keep you from having a great time in the U.S. Just avoid the "freezers " like Minnesota, North Dakota, Michigan.

    For good weather your winter options are Sothern California or Florida.

    Florida is tropical. So Cal is a lot like Sydney in the winter.

    Florida in winter is high touist season so it will be expensive and a much longer trip from Australia.

    Consider coming to San Diego instead of LA. It's is one of the nicest cities in the country. It's a major tourist destination and there are tons of things to do.

    Some must see attractions are the world famous Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park. Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the country. You can get a park passport which allows you entry to a dozen museums as well as the zoo.

    Of course it rains in LA. And no NYC is not always cold. Gads try being in the city on a muggy, hot, humid August day. You melt.

    Really. you can look up weather on line for any city.

    The US is HUGE. Weather is different in each state and within each state. I live near Chicago IL, weather here is different than it is in southern Illinois.

    Depending on where you are going to visit, it may be snowing, sleeting, freezing rain, ice, below zero (Farenheit) temperatures.

    winter is the absolute worst time to come to America

    most of the country will be too cold to enjoy yourself

    to correct you winter is the rainy season in LA, nit the dry season

    the weather will vary by region, but in most of the country it will range from chilly to cold to very cold

    only in Hawaii and the southernmost parts of the country will the weather be pleasnt, which will iinclude parts of southern California, southern Arizona, most of the Gulf Coast and Floraida (part of which is included in the Gulf Coast)

    Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Marianas, American Samoa and the US Virgin Islands are also US territories and will have nicer weaterh in the winter than most of the continental USA

    There's a lot of variation in weather in the U.S. Lower latitudes tend to be warmer than higher. There are differences in elevation that make a big difference. Wind direction and prevailing winds make a big difference.

    Los Angeles is semi-arid , but there is rain, mostly in winter.

    Higher latitudes mostly get warm in summer.

    Hmm, i know what you mean. The state I stay in has fickle climate. there is no reason to hearken to the factors comments...they'd't ever determine it out. sorting out the window is the suited guess.
