Popular belief is Florida (the sunshine state), however, that is merely the "popular" belief perpetuated by license plates and the Florida visitors bureau. The actual meteorological data shows that 5 U.S. states actually have a greater claim on that title than Florida. The top state, and it makes sense when you think about it, is Arizona. Next, are California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas, in that order. These stats are from the national weather service and were reported in USA Today. http://www.usatoday.com/weather/news/2004-06-21-fla-sunshine_x.htm As stated in the USA Today article, Florida has more days where between 20% and 70% of the sun is blocked by clouds than anywhere else in the United States.

It does not rain every day in Queensland. The weather pattern of 2010-2011 is very unusual, and the result of a La Nina which has brought a great deal of wet weather to Aust…ralia's east coast. This phenomenon occurs less frequently than its opposite, the El Nino, which brings drought and dry conditions to Australia. The last time Queensland received such a soaking was back in 1973-74.
