Milan or Bergamo. Thunderstorms in the summer, snow just a short drive away in the winter.

Neither fit the criteria of the OPs question though, in the same way that I wanted Munich to be my answer but it's not a capital city.

I have family in Vienna and spent a month there when I was around 12, in July/August. There were powerful thunderstorms, really foggy humid days, plenty of sunny days in the late 20s/early 30s, torrential rain like you'd see in Asia... but mostly pleasant summer weather without being insufferably hot.
They also get snowy winters and lots of mountains nearby for skiing. It's no wonder Vienna often comes top of most livable cities.

In that case then Tokyo. Mild enough winters, but only a shinkansen ride away from Sapporo, the snowiest city in the world, and a short flight from Okinawa if you want winter sun.

Good chance of thunderstorms in the summer and of course always good for a typhoon.

In between, nice springs and autumns.

If you're into earthquakes too then look no further. It has everything.

Tbilisi for me.

8 months of the year it is gorgeous. And you will always get some snow in the remaining 4 months without it ever being anywhere near "cold".

I have also experienced some cracking thunderstorms there again without it being anything you could describe as a wet location.

My preference would be similar to Gonzo's. The older I get, the more unappealing the banal, colourless, spirit annihilating, uniform white grey maritime climate of NW Europe is becoming. Anywhere from Switzerland, southern Germany or Austria eastwards and as far away from the Atlantic, Med or Baltic as is possible is your only man.

Edit, and I know this is a capital city thread, but they don't really appeal to me.

Vaduz in Liechtenstein of course , up in the Alps right beside my fav countries of Germany, Switzerland and Austria and catch a train to anywhere in the Alps for tons of snow.

(Non capitol) Buffalo in upstate New York just to experience real Lake effect snow and six feet of it in a few hours.

....and there you go. I've said it before. Feckin' Athens gets snow more regularly than Dublin. Probably the same for Ankara in Turkey.

Definitely it does. Hugely changeable weather there. End of week is 16c, next week 18c on Tuesday. It’s 1c now.
