Wow, it was 82 out yesterday and the leaves on the trees are still green, but winter starts in two weeks, don't you know!

Perhaps NE Mississippi and NW Arkansas as well.

A warm spell does not a season make

^^^^ Colorado and NY (the Upstate part) are good ideas.


Four seasons means four DEFINITE seasons--with a real winter, a spring, a fall where leaves get brilliant colors.

Good places to go for this:

1. Most places in the snow belt area in Upstate NY
2. Erie, PA area
3. Cleveland, OH
4. Burlington, VT
5. Most areas of Minnesota. Bonus: sometimes the summers get hot and the winters absolutely frigid.
6. Northeast Iowa

Forget the places in the South that are being mentioned.

Four seasons isn't a place that has temperatures that vary 10 or 15 degrees from season to season or where winter lasts one or two months.

The coldest and warmest months should have temperature differences of 50-55 degrees. Now THAT is a 4-season climate.

A 4-season climate should have a real winter, with freezing temperatures and snowfall.

4-season climates don't have summers that last most of the year and have temperatures that top 80F most of the time.

Colorado, even with its erratic seasons?

For example, Denver and the rest of the NE quadrant will see snow TOMORROW. Would a place with a true 4-season climate see snow in early October or mid-May? Precipitation patterns in much of the state are all over the place as well.

That being said, it is absolutely beautiful here in the fall. Even with the snow.

Part of the charm of a 4-season climate is surprising weather

Okay so it might be an extreme version of it but at least Colorado has 4 seasons.

Darn, wish we were getting snow here already!

Well I think here in New England we are known for our seasons

As for the above temp range, my town has 47 degrees between the Jan and July high: 37-84. And 45 for the lows: 19-64. Not *quite* fitting, but add in the feels like and you'll get that desired 50-55 range. The LIS keeps us more moderated.

And yes, a snow window from October to April is perfect for a four season climate. It's what we have here as well, and I don't know of a four season climate where it doesn't snow in October or April.

Spring and fall are just winter and summer at the same time, only slightly mitigated.

Florida doesn't have 4 seasons. They have 2 wet and dry. Summers are the worst.

My observed South Florida seasons.
1. Wealthy Tourists and Big Dollar Festivals (Nov-Feb)
2. University Spring Breaks & Millennials (Mar-April)
3. Cheaper Post-Season Cruises (May-July)
4. Hurricanes (August-October)

Yep...That's 4 seasons!
