Late fall, winter, and the first month of spring are characterized by stormy conditions with frequent blizzards, rain storms, sleet, wind, etc. Sunshine is rare. It begins to clear up around mid-April with sunshine becoming more common. By the end of April the majority of days are clear and mild. The clear, calm, and dry conditions last from then until early fall. October is relatively dry, but becomes increasingly cloudy. The first rain of the season often arrives in October. The same is generally true of November, but is even more cloudy with the storm season locking in by the end of the month.

B - I like inclement weather like that in the winter months (and the winter months only) but January a little too cold, also I wouldn't want an entirely dry summer. Otherwise great!

Could use some higher and lower extremes, but apart from that I say C+ / B- territory. Could be higher so I wont lock in a vote just yet. Don't mind too much if skies stay overcast or mostly cloudy, or if temps stay sub freezing, but what kind of breaks does this climate get from storms during storm season? And are there any crystal clear and sub freezing and dry winter days? Those are some of my favorite winter days in Seattle.

Oh yea, what about thunder storms during the fall and spring seasons? Any dry lightning in the summer evenings and nights?

Breaks between the storms are usually overcast, with a few peaks of sunshine possible, or maybe a few hours of partly cloudy skies every now and then. But crystal clear skies and sub-freezing temperatures would only occur a few times during the winter. Most of the time it's overcast/stormy.

Thinking about it now, perhaps it would have been more realistic to have a higher record high...more like mid-90s to around 100 since it's abundantly sunny during the summer.

Thunder would be very rare. You'd be lucky to hear it once a year.

Hmm.. that might make me rethink my grade. Probably a B, B- at worst.

Maybe I could throw some thunderstorms into the mix to make it even more interesting (mostly confined to spring). There could also be thundersnow.

It's not *my* dream climate, so reasonable suggestions and tweaks are welcomed.

It would be near to have the occasional thundersnow, and some storms occuring in Spring (or Autumn if there's enough moisture). Some dry lightning would be especially cool.
