I agree San Diego does not have four seasons. It has two. Warm and nice, and somewhat warmer and nice.
Still as you know the weather in the PNW (at least west of the Cascades) doesn't normally get cold enough for the humidity to be bone chilling and it is dry to the east so imo it's a moot point for that region.

Yeah, that was my point. Mild winter temps with high humdity don't bother me, but I guess some could be bothered by that. As I grew up and spent my first 30 years in Seattle, it was normal for me, and I never considered the wet winters to be anything but what was expected. Drizzle, slugs, no umbrella was the culture, and perhaps still is!

I have a swamp cooler and don't need AC but some people prefer AC for the few humid days during our rainy season or for pollen.
Okay I see.

Yeah you're pretty much limited to the PNW/Northern CA, what kind of temperature ranges are you looking at, what do you consider 4 seasons?

I'd almost say cities in CO, except that there are occasionally mosquitoes (despite the severe dryness).

As far as 4 seasons go, are you okay with places that have all 4 seasons, but are they very lopsided? Again, CO has four seasons, but is weighted like: 6 months winter, 2 month springs, 4 summer, and 2 months fall. Winter goes on way too long in my opinion, and summers are very hot and dry.

It seems like the more you have all seasons, the more you have to be tolerant of extremes.

Update: I just saw the "very little snow" or none note. Definitely rules out CO!

California has programs for mosquito eradication that cover 80-90% of the population within the state. No where else I can think of provides as much coverage as that.

What exactly are four season without snow? That's three seasons with a cool funk in the middle.

Short winter is fine, longer summer is great.
I'm in Florida and "winter" is anything below 60.
I'm ok with some cold days but I'm tired of snow that I used to have in NY.
