Are there any places east of the Mississippi with a climate similar to London, UK? Any places with lots of spring a fall type weather, drizzle, cool summers, etc...? The only places I know of like this in the US are in the Pacific NW.

Seattle is pretty close, but it gets too much sun in summer. Maybe Astoria, Oregon, where even in summer the sun is unexpected.

PNW is closest probably, like Seattle (or Vancouver in Canada). Perhaps another place like Buffalo or maybe even Cleveland, although they're probably warmer in the summer than London.

Of the British folks that I know in this town (Seattle), they are pretty clear on the fact that Seattle is probably the closest in climate to London. I would have to agree.

East of the Mississippi is going to have more distinct seasons than what you find in the UK. Summer is going to be warmer, and winter colder (with the exception of the deep-south and Florida). Fall and Spring are much more pronounced, but also generally fairly abrupt.

Juneau is pretty snowy in the winter.
