A, all it needs is warmer winter lows.

It depends on where in PA, there are many micro-climates there due to the influences of the mountains and water. My parents are part way up Blue Mountain in unincorporated PA and get 10-12" of rain annually, less than Sequim, yet get more snow due to their elevation. They see the sun nearly every day, but often only in the afternoon/early evening. My brother in Sequim is close to the water and gets more wind, an a bit more rain, about 16". Within the city limits of PA it's 36" of rain, and that is about the same as in the San Francisco Bay area. Out 101 past the airport there is even more rain. For the city itself, because the summers are cool, and there is enough rain, but lots of sun, I would grade it B.

I'll give it a B. It's a very pleasant and livable climate. It's the kind of place where my eczema-prone skin would be very happy -- no cold dry winters, no hot humid summers. Just very moderate and pleasant overall. Winters would no doubt be fairly grey, but at least they'd be lush and green with the rainfall and those mild temps. And the dry half of the year would have tons of sunshine, so I think that would be enough to carry me through. The only real downside is the very cool summer temps. Boost those by 4C and I'd be in heaven.

Pretty much this, close comparable. Vic is mildly drier and warmer year round but follows similar patterns. Wonder if cloud cover and windchill are similar as well.

Victoria is often considered the best climate in the country in Canada, and yet a marginally less desirable analogue in the USA seems to average a C+ at best based on the responses.

Temperatures are not bad but a D for being too dry and not having clearly defined seasons.

For those who say Port Angeles doesn't have clearly defined seasons, that is not true at all. I don't think anybody in the PNW gets confused as to what season it is when they are walking around outside

C+. It's pretty much the same as where I live, but drier and slightly more oceanic.
