I grew up in Greensboro, went to school in Raleigh, and I have been in Charlotte for 7 years now.
Weather: Mild winters, little snow, occasional ice storms which really suck. The summer has one forecast from June to late September.... hot, chance of rain...thunderstorm between 5pm and 6pm, almost everyday. Weather in SoCal is much better, but overall it is pretty nice here.
Charlotte is a cool town, I lived in downtown for 4 years which was great, lots of restaurants/bars and fun stuff to do. Then I got married, had a kid, now live in the burbs, which is nice too.
Other cool thing is the mountains are only a couple hour drive, and the beach is only 3 hours away. Makes for good road trip material.
Oh yea, air quality is the suck here. Allergies can get out of control... my wife hates that.
Best of luck...
