Virginia at a Glance: Weather, Climate, and Seasons

Nesbitt Realty is licensed in Virginia.

The Commonwealth of Virginia is privileged to have a temperate climate, moderate rainfall, and a rich and fertile landscape. Although the late summer months (particularly August) are known for the intense humidity and the winter months (particularly February) regularly experience significant snowfall; these extremes in both temperature and weather ensure that Virginians enjoy all four seasons of each calendar year to their fullest potential. Virginia has five distinct climate regions including: Tidewater, Piedmont, Northern Virginia, Western Mountain and Southwestern Mountain. The topography and climate of Virginia is largely the result of its geographic location, situated between the Blue Ridge Mountain Range and the Chesapeake Bay. Each diverse climate region provides an extensive array of plant varieties and vegetation, which helps to create a unique microclimate and ecosystem in each location.

Temperature, rainfall, and wind are the most important aspects of climate and weather patterns, with temperature being the most critical. Although the climate and temperature of Virginia varies according to location, it generally becomes increasingly warm farther to the South. Most of the state has a humid, subtropical climate stretching from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Southern Shenandoah Valley. There is wide variation in average temperatures across the Commonwealth, affecting everything from the natural growing season to a family’s heating and cooling costs. Thunderstorms are a regular occurrence throughout the year, particularly in the western part of the state with an annual average of 35−45 days of thunderstorm activity. Meanwhile, cold air masses arriving from the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially during the winter, can lead to significant snowfall and ice storms from early November to mid-March. Spring brings wildflowers and moderate temperatures but also harbors a palpable increase in tree pollen at the beginning of April. Wildflowers in the mountains tend to peak throughout the month of May, while other local flora and fauna can bloom as late as mid-September. Finally, the summer months usually hold an average temperature ranging from 70-88 degrees, but because of the area’s humid and subtropical climate, a typical summer day can feel significantly hotter.

Each distinct region of Virginia welcomes visitors to a wide range of outdoor activities that can be enjoyed throughout every season such as skiing in the mountains during the winter or playing golf in the valley during the summer. Other activities such as hiking, bicycling and camping are year-round for Virginians, and the coastal regions provide plenty of opportunity for water sports as well.

Early Spring in the Courtyard

Sunny days are coming

The courtyard of the Royalton is a great place to find some sun in early Spring. Royalton isn’t the only condo in our area with a nice courtyard though. Carlyle Square, the Palazzo at Center Park, the Plaza and Torpedo Factory are just a few of the places with great courtyards.

A walk in Old Town Alexandria VA

Lee Street in Fall

Early Autumn is a great time to talk a walk around Old Town Alexandria VA. It’s very pleasant because of the typically mild weather and leaves blazing with color. The picture above was taking from the front door of 115 N. Lee St. at the Torpedo Factory condos. The leaves have accumulated behind Alexandria’s Carlyle House. Residents at the Torpedo Factory are particularly fortunate because of their proximity to King St. and the waterfront. (The Torpedo Factory scored a perfect 100 Walk Score.)

Old Town at the intersection of Lee and King

I like the mornings near the waterfront, before the tourists arrive.

Alleys of Old Town

One of the features of Old Town Alexandria are the cobblestone streets. There are only a few of them remaining. The fountains of Market Square are barely visible at the end of the alley.
