All of them. Every state/city can have weather extremes and people outside the region have little reason to be aware of them.

Spring: Probably the most mild season along with Fall. Generally warm ranging from high 50s-high 60s/low 70s. However, allergies this time of year are completely unbearable.

Summer: My favorite season, although the humidity is downright awful according to most people (I love the humidity, so it doesn't bother me). There can be periods of time in July/August where it is 90+ degrees/95%+ humidity for weeks. Going to the city in the summer is just plain awful too because the smell of the **** on the sidewalks just evaporates into the sky and the smell is disgusting (if you have asthma, good luck).

Fall: The most mild season, in late September it hovers around the 60s, dropping into the low 60s/50s/high 40s in October, and starts getting cold in Mid November (we've had cases where there was a full on blizzard on Halloween, but 70 degrees the week after in November, so Fall can be unpredictable sometimes)
It's in the Mid-Atlantic. It's really not that weird. They can have a lot of snow, Arctic blasts, hurricanes, heat waves and droughts. It's not the hottest, coldest, or stormiest place in the US.

I am from Colorado, a state known for snow but I don't think many know about the strong, hurricane force chinook winds that the Front Range gets.

For example, the Denver gets those hurricane-force chinook winds in January that warm the area to 70 degrees or more. Colorado Springs also gets some ultra-strong winds that even at 6000 feet, can take it above 70 degrees.

Areas on southern Front Range like Pueblo can even go above 80 degrees in January.

Arizona also has some very odd weather.

Tucson for example gets an ultra-strong monsoon and even Tropical Depressions that are left-overs from Baja California. Tucson can get 13" of rain during a monsoon summer.

I was in Tucson for 2 weeks over the summer and like clockwork when it would hit 90 degrees last July, there would be heavy rain. Almost every afternoon when I was there one part of the Tucson area would have flash flood warnings.

Tucson also can have some pretty chilly summer afternoons. I remember one day last summer it was in the low 80s but after the monsoon in the afternoon it cooled to 70 degrees.

After monsoon rainfalls it is very common for temperatures in the late afternoon to be in the 70s in the middle of the summer, after peaking at about 90 earlier in the day.

Tucson is also very, very humid in the late-summer.

Other weather patterns that are not commonly known:

-Las Vegas has much cooler spring weather then Phoenix, but during Monsoon it is very similar

-Eastern San Diego County gets very hot in the summer-time, the Antolope Valley in Los Angeles gets extremely cold in the winter

-Albuquerque winters are much colder then people think. Las Cruces though has a Phoenix like winter.

-Salt Lake City has very little wind in the winter and gets extremely intense pollution. The weather people in Salt Lake City are always happy to report when a little wind comes to the Valley usually in February magically ridding the city of it's terrible January air pollution.

-Fargo can get Seattle like doom and gloom mid-winter where it is above freezing and even sometimes rains in January.
I disagree, Las Vegas is much drier and less humid during traditional Monsoon Season. The Phoenix area received 5-6 inches of rain in September of 2014 during our Monsoon, and Vegas was still baking in the 110s. The are only similar in early june to mid July. After that, the weather differences became stark imo.

Salt Lake also gets the "lake effect" snow in the winter from the GSL.
