I live in the metropolitan area. So, the answer would be yes. :-)

It looks like people are saying that part of Japan has almost the same climate as Washington, D.C.? If so, which city in particular?

Parts of Australia have 4 seasons, Victoria and Tasmania. Winter may not be quite as cold at ground level but we do get some snow in the mountains. In Tasmania we had a sprinkling of snow at ground level this year.

True 4 seasons do not exist in this country, like in the east coast.

Fabio, none of Europe is similar to the east coast USA. When it comes to climate, which side the ocean is in relation to you is very important and greatly influences the climate. In your country, the closest the climate is to the east coast US is Rio Grande do Sul to São Paulo (Miami or Key West)



I'll also add northeast Argentina is similar as well, and Uruguay.
oh, i thought he meant northern east coast as in a 4 season climate.

Northeast argentina, the pampas, uruguay, or southern brazil, are nothing like a 4 season climate, they are very temperate and usually have 2 seasons (hot and not that hot)

Russia has clear-cut four seasons, just without the "summer beach hot weather," when you can't survive without air conditioner. The air is dry for the most part unlike in the US, be that summer or winter.
Ukraine has similar climate ( just shorter and milder winters somewhat and hotter summers,) and I always thought that Germany ( at least) had four clear-cut seasons; most likely the rest of Northern continental Europe ( plus Scandinavian counties as well, just with colder, shorter summers.)

Let's not forget New Zealand. Particularly the South Island, which also has four distinct seasons like the East Coast: a warm summer, colourful autumn, snowy and wet winter and spring.

I've never been to Argentina but I've always wondered how cold it gets in Patagonia during summer (winter). It looks like it gets pretty cold there, but not as extreme as the equivalent latitudes north on the North American continent.

Is there a similar climatic effect to the North Atlantic Gulf Stream to moderate temperatures?

There's 4 seasons even in Georgia. A lot of people outside of the US don't seem to know that it does get cold in the southern US. Maybe not all the time, but it does. Winter is still winter, even if it's in the low 10s or single digits °C for a few weeks.

Would my city not be a 4 season climate? I think we've had this debate in the Weather forum before. It was less than 0°C in my city last week, but yesterday it was 16°C and today will be 17°C. Do I live in a 4 season climate?
