Hi all,

I was just wondering what major cities get 4 season weather but don't get absolutely frigid during the winter? I really need seasons to be happy (I get bored if it's always sunny, even though I prefer warm to cold weather), but I just can't imagine being up north right now where it feels like it's 5 degrees or less. Any thoughts on places that have "milder" 4 season weather?

Thanks!

I'd say New York City. It has four season, but the winters aren't that bad. There's snow and cold in the winter, but also long periods of somewhat milder weather as well.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard Atlanta gets snow... If I'm right, that would be a great option.

The Upper South and the Mid Atlantic regions would probably be a good fit for you. Seattle and Portland may work too.

DC, Baltimore, Richmond.
Hot summers, cool but not deathly freezing winters, it'll probably get to 10 degrees on the absolute coldest day of the year. Expect about 100 at the peak of the summer.

Probably the swath within an imaginary triangle formed by Memphis, Atlanta and D.C. This would include Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Greensboro-Winston Salem, Birmingham, Greenville-Spartanburg, Richmond and Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Tidewater.

Atlanta, Nashville, Charolette, Dallas.

My friends are in DC right now and posting pictures of the city being covered in snow. I think DC probably don't have mild winters....

Denver has cold but very sunny winters. It is quite pleasant I hear.

Genrally NYC and south along the Eastern Seaboard to say Atlanta will have four seasons and not too bad in the winter (well cant say that here today with 14 inches of fresh snow and 5 degrees)

Winters are less severe overall then are summers IMHO (today withstanding)

Your friends in DC are posting pictures of the city being covered in snow because it doesn't happen very often and it's worth documenting. DC hasn't gotten this much snow since 2010. Most of the winter DC has pretty mild "sweatshirt" weather.

I think a problem with this thread is that the OP didn't define what "mild" means to him/her, or give us a relative benchmark. Does mild mean only snows occasionally (in which case DC qualifies) or does it mean never snows at all (in which case Miami, FL qualifies)?

Chances are if the winter is warm in DC, it's warm in NYC. The NYC-DC corridor gets identical weather.
