How can I find discrete geographic areas around the world which meet certain meteorological conditions?

I need to identify certain areas of the world - figure zip cod/international analogue is discrete enough, although more granular is preferred - which meet a variety of meteorological conditions.

In general, these will be in coastal regions - in fact, all of the areas will be in coastal regions (but not all coastal regions will meet the criteria).
For example, I need to ID all coastal regions which have:
- avg. annual humidity at greater than 75%, AND
- avg. annual temperature at greater than 62 degrees F, AND
- avg. monthly rainfall at greater than 4.5 inches (54 inches annually)
Is there a source which would allow me to perform meteorological filters such as above and get a list of zip codes (int'l analogue) which meet the criteria?
