Jim, think I've seen some sites that suggest that NYC is also "subtropical humid"(!!!)and the warm to relatively hot and muggy summers there would give the appearance of that climate BUT the winters there are often quite the opposite which IMHO puts it out of the running---just like your description of your area.
FWIW and as another indication of how relative and relatively site specific such terms as "drought" and "dry" really are you mentioned having a dry period of 3-6 weeks during the summer---compare that to here where even in the "damp and dank" Oregon coast the dry period is generally 8-12 weeks or more!. the lack of rain is mitigated to some extent by the generally low heat accumulation (75f. would generally be considered a rather "warm" day around here, LOL) but inland areas will get the same or longer dry spell plus an average of around 75-80f. (with periods of much warmer temps 90-100f.)
