Where can I find simple maps comparing latitude around the world?

I want to see a map of North America with all major western European cities overlaid at the correct latitude. Vice versa for American cities overlaid a map of Western Europe. Is there anything like this out there already or easily assembled?

Mostly, I wonder if when I hear about harsh winters in Helsinki, if that's like a town in Alaska, latitude-wise. And when people talk about the South of France or Portugal being lovely and warm, I wonder if Los Angeles is that far south.
It seems like a simple thing to just overlay border lines from one map with cities-only from another and vice versa, but I'm having trouble finding clean, simple maps for both North America and Western Europe at the same scale and latitude coverage.
