Awning vs single hung/sliding windows

I'm wondering what people think of awning windows.
I was going to have 2'X3' single hung windows for the hallway and the master bedroom in a new house but I started to wonder if awning ones might work better.
First, the view won't be blocked and second, the rain won't get in.
I live where it rains for weeks and weeks from the fall to the spring and I like having windows open whenever I can.
I've had awning windows in previous houses but I didn't pay much attention to them as they were small ones in bathrooms.
Does anyone have good size awning windows?
I'm also thinking of having 4x3 awning window next to a bathtub instead of sliding one.
Thank you.
