Virginia Weather

Virginia experiences four distinct seasons. Winters are mild on the coast with snow in the higher elevations. Summers are mild and pleasant throughout the state. Fall brings brilliant color throughout the state, and spring brings Virginia's Historic Garden Week with home and garden tours at the peak of springtime color.

Virginia has five distinct climate regions: the Tidewater, Piedmont, Northern Virginia, Western Mountain and Southwestern Mountain. The different regions welcome Virginia visitors to a wide range of outdoor activities, such as snowskiing in the mountains and playing golf in the valley both in the same day!
