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. 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. See what marketing can do for you.
