Unlike... everyone I know, I really, really, really hate sunny weather and hot temperatures. 60-70 degrees in the daytime is already very warm for me with just short sleeves. 70+ is just not fun. My main problem is the sunshine because it makes me feel miserable.

What other parts of the country besides Seattle has overcast weather most of the year? I was thinking of maybe living there in the future but I'm not sure how expensive it is. Are there other areas in the US that are like that?
Ithaca, NY remains fairly cool in summer (I believe the highs only reach about 78 on average). It would be somewhat cheaper than Seattle as well. I'm moving from hot as heck Louisiana to either NY, WA, or MI this spring, so I feel your pain in finding the right place.

Wrong. The OP asked for a place that has cooler weather and overcast skies most of the year. We have cold winters with some overcast, but our springs, summers, and falls are more sunny than not and our summers are usually very hot and very humid.

Temps in the 70sF aren't cool, especially to this OP who thinks 60F is warm.

I agree with Eureka/Crescent City, CA, and Brookings, OR. Never too hot, never too cold. Plenty clouds and fog.

I just moved to Crescent City, and the postman remarked to me yesterday that "We have two seasons, spring and fall." And I said, "Sounds perfect to me!"

I moved here from Redding, and as the previous poster mentioned, the summers are brutal there, and I actually got sick of sunshine, it's relentless. So, I'm happy to compromise for cooler temps, even if that means lots of clouds. I also wanted a place that wouldn't have ice and snow in winter.

If the OP needs to find high paying work, better head to San Francisco for cool/mild temps. If you don't have to work or aren't too picky, the north coast should suit (California) and southern Oregon coast.

I also agree that Pacific Grove by Monterey would work, too, though they may get warmer in summer than farther north, but PG is known for being cloudy/foggy.
