D+, similar to my climate but this is slightly better due to the drier summers.

I rated it as an A myself because it is one of the very few drier oceanic climates in the US classified as Mediterranean with a narrow annual temperature range. Also, it is affordable for being close to the Olympic Mountains and National Forest areas.

D-, only redeeming feature is July&August and that winter is better than about 70% of the rest of the country temp&snow wise, though still gets a lot of drizzle/rain so loses points for that

It does get less precipitation than any area west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State as well as more sunlight hours. It also seems very popular with retirees, around 40% of the towns population is over the age of 65.

F for being on the verge of being a Bsk climate in terms of annual precipitation and for the hot dry summers

I don’t know which climate classification system you are using, but under Koppen the whole west coast is Csb “cool summer mediterranean”. Very few parts fall under Cfb. Now if you mean borderline Bsk “semi-arid” then yes Sequim would be the only coastal area north of San Francisco with those conditions.

Default grade A

Since it's in between Port Townsend and Port Angeles, I presume it's similar temperature-wise
(never severely cold, nor hot), and I've read that it has less precipitation than those neighbors,
owing to the rain shadow. That gets an A from me!

Trewartha considers it Do, and honestly I consider it cool oceanic dry summer, I don't consider a climate truly Mediterranean unless it's coolest month is above 6°C, and if it has 4+ months 18°C+. I believe there are dry summer oceanic climates
