Having lived in western Oregon for several years, here are my comments.

Minus the rainfall... well, that's kind of what makes the PNW the PNW IMHO.

Where I lived, a normal December day would be high in the mid/upper 40's low around 35F, with constant gray sky and drizzle throughout the day. 50's didn't happen all that often in the winter, usually it's when the pineapple express sets up so it means tons of rain. 60's didn't typically constantly happen until April. There were quite a few trachies around though, however most people didn't seem to realize they were actually palms.
