I wouldn't call a "mild winter" a 4-season climate. That would be a mild or warm climate. Usually somebody looking for a 4-season climate is looking for winters that are, well, winter-y. Like, somewhere in the Midwest or Northeast or maybe the Rockies.

I'm talking about states where it's cool and the leaves change in fall, and it's cold and it snows in the winter.

Is that suppose to be a trick question?

The portion of the 35th to 40th degree parralel that is East of the Mississippi River and West of the Appalachian Mountains includes parts of KY, TN, IL, IN, OH.

I shouldve included MO and AR.

If you consider any month any month where the average high is below 60 then sure. Otherwise, it's fall right now and it will continue to be fall for almost 2 months.

I mean there's a huge range of "4 seasons climates." You can find 4 seasons climates in the South but they will have hotter summers and warmer falls, winters and springs. You go far up north and they get more defined but the falls and springs will be colder and the winters much much colder. The Midwest and Northeast are the best for truly distinct seasons as is the mountain South. The Rockies are nice but the shoulder seasons are more chaotic, and its not as green and colourful.

I disagree. If the winter is full of bare deciduous trees and it gets cold enough for occasional frost and snow then its still a winter even if it doesn't snow much. I'd say about half of Texas has a 4 seasons climate. There's no mistaking North Texas in November, January or April for summer that's for sure. If the landscape changes noticeably enough its got seasons.

I wonder how they determined the climates of Sacramento and Arden-Arcade to be a full percentile 10% different from each other.

Are there any places in the south that get four seasons?

North of 35 means north of NC, TN, AR, OK, NM and AZ and out of New York, the southern reaches of the Great Lakes, south of line through IA, Nebraska, south of Wyoming.

Personally I think 40 degrees is too far north, it exposes one to the brutal climate of Chicago, Great Lakes snowbelts in Ohio and Indiana and other tough cold climates. "Four seasons" does not mean freezing your hind quarter off. Some northern places in this nation have six months of cold.
