After checking the ongoing "summer" in Moscow, I don't think Seattle could get that kind of bad.

Seattle by light years.... it's not that great of a climate to begin with. It just shows how bad Moscow is then...

Not surprising at all. There is a huge difference in latitude between the two.

Indeed Seattle is more at the latitude of Nantes or Budapest, and shares a similar climate to the former. While it is the northernmost US city at 47.6N, it is still slightly closer to the latitude of Philadelphia or Madrid (40N) than to Moscow (55.75N). Even in a Canadian context, Moscow is still quite far poleward, 2 degrees further north than Edmonton, the northernmost 1M+ city in Canada, with Toronto/Montreal and even Vancouver well to the south.

99.9% of people will think of the Russian capital when they hear Moscow. I doubt many people have even heard of a Moscow in Idaho.

The OP also said most people think both climates are favorable. I donít know about you but Moscow is known more for its bad weather rather than itís good. Thatís why I brought up the other Moscow because arguably it has a favorable climate.
