AWS "Lightsail" product has been working well for me.
Windows Server VM with 2 Gig RAM allowance has a predictable USD 20 per month base price.
I have also had good value from "databasemart" in the US who are windows hosting specialists.
I don't know if they are a "windows" host, but have you looked at Siteground? I know they are based out of the UK, but I think their data center is out of Spain. I use them and I really like them, but I am not as advanced a user as you are.

I've been monitoring the hurricane season at the National Weather Service for years National Hurricane Center[^] - even before Sandy (2012). Something that I don't recall seeing very much at all is the storms turning Northeast well before approaching the US's East Coast and/or extending into Canada and on to Europe. It's just drawn my attention as I'm so unaccustomed to those paths.
