Florida Not the Sunshine State Claimed

KEN KAYE, SUN SENTINEL, FL - Florida may brag about being the Sunshine State, but five other states actually catch more rays. Arizona is No. 1, with Yuma seeing an average of 242 clear sunny days. Apalachicola, the sunniest spot in Florida, sees 128.

California, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas also bask in more sun, according to the National Weather Service, which monitors about 265 weather stations nationwide...

Indeed, Florida has more days where between 20 to 70 percent of the sun is blocked by clouds than anywhere else in the continental U.S., weather officials say.
