Is there a city on the East Coast (including the South) or Midwest that still has an actual Spring? Everywhere I’ve been in the last 20 years has about four days of spring weather before summer begins.

Atlanta certainly does. It begins in late March and continues on into early June. Summer really doesn't begin in earnest there until about mid-June.

Atlanta’s average high in May is 80į. That’s summer.

Depends on who you're talking to, I guess. An Inuit might have a different opinion about such things.
I know that I've experienced many a June morning in Atlanta that required a light jacket.

What are you talking about?

Here are July High/Low/Mean for Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh:

ATL 89.1/71.3/80.2
CLT 89.0/68.1/78.6
RDU 90.2/69.9/80.1

So Raleigh at 90 and Atlanta and Charlotte one degree short of it. Unless you are thinking of mean temp, but we are talking about average high temp, not average mean temp

Highs in the 80s isn't spring weather, with the humidity in Atlanta, that is swimming weather.

I was talking about the Summer season since the conversation I thought was focused more on four season climates.

Perspective... I was born and raised in Wyoming.

If there's not snow stuck to the ground for weeks/months on end, it's not "winter". And I *Vastly* prefer my summers to not need AC, anything over 80 is pure misery for me. Given that most of the southern US is in the subtropics, I don't feel like they have any claim of "4 seasons":




For the folks claiming Atlanta has a winter or spring... again, perspective. If you've never been someone with Actual seasons (other than melting hot and rainy cool), I can see how it's easy to make a claim that others wouldn't agree with. 10 years in Georgia, 4 in Atlanta, and there are basically 2 seasons here. Summer and fall/spring (Barely jacket weather, unless it's raining, for those with more northern experiences).

Swimming weather is an excellent way to put it. If you can comfortably swim outdoors, it isnít spring weather.
