Charlotte's Four Seasons Bring Residents Outdoors for Much of the Year

Charlotte's Four Seasons Bring Residents Outdoors for Much of the Year  

 

One of the most frequently asked questions that we get from those relocating to the Charlotte area is, “What’s the weather like in Charlotte? Charlotte's Four Seasons - Enjoy the Great Outdoors in Charlotte NCI always respond with a smile, that we’re certainly blessed in the Charlotte Metro region, with great weather--four seasons, all relatively mild.  Just as our location offers Charlotteans both the benefit of easy access to the mountains and the beaches, we enjoy fabulous weather.

 

Many companies who select Charlotte as their new headquarters or are moving offices to a new area do so because of our weather.  The year is filled with days that call you to the great outdoors with lots of blue skies and a moderate climate. Our near-perfect weather situation is a major contributing factor to the city’s beautiful landscape.  With gorgeous parks and lakes, tree-lined streets and mature hardwoods filling Charlotte’s neighborhoods, you’ll quickly see why our weather effects the beauty of the city. If you’re accustomed to the northern winter blues, you can forget about them!  In Charlotte, the weather draws you outdoors all year long--and not to shovel snow!

Wonderful Winters

Charlotte’s winters offer only about a handful of the winter days with temperatures falling below freezing.  We call our winters, ‘light-jacket winters’ here in Charlotte.  We have infrequent snows--in fact, very infrequent--with a typical 1-2 snow days per year and an average snowfall of less than 5 inches.  If you’re into snow skiing, the North Carolina mountains are only 2 hours away where you can enjoy the snow, without having to endure it at home.

Sunny Summers

Talk about being lured outdoors--sunny and clear skies fill our summer days. Unlike cities to the south though, very hot weather conditions (90°F, 32°F) occur only 40 days in Charlotte compared to 81 days in Jacksonville, Florida and 83 days in Houston, Texas. On the average, temperatures reach 100°F (38°C) only twice a year. With an average summer temperature of 76°F (24°C) and an average daily range of 20 degrees, these inviting days are punctuated by cool nights under starry skies.

Splendid Springs and Fantastic Falls

Oh, how we love the changing seasons in Charlotte!  They are simply the most enjoyable times of the year.  Spring’s slow emergence typically occurs from mid-March through May.  The colors are simply spectacular with nature’s palette  providing beautiful colors all around from ground covers to shrubbery to the magnificent cherry blossoms high above.  With the Carolina crisp, clear blue skies as a backdrop for the brilliant array of pinks, purples, reds and yellows.   The gorgeous array of colors paint the skyline well into the fall season. September through November welcome the cooler temperatures and offer even more reason to head out to our local parks or your own backyard.

Balanced Rainfall

Rainfall is nearly evenly distributed throughout the year with an average annual precipitation of 43 inches.  Summer months have the heaviest rainfall and the wettest month is March, with 4.4 inches; November is the driest month, with 3.0 inches of precipitation. On occasion, Charlotte has 1-3 week dry spells with droughts being rare.  Charlotte has never had a major flood.  Occasional lowland flooding does occur, however.  Local stream and river basins efficiently carry most all of our rainfalls.

Severe Weather, Normal Temperatures, Humidity, and Precipitation

Charlotte’s normal summer humidity is about 74 percent.  Hurricanes and tornadoes are extremely rare in the Charlotte Metro area.  Normal temperatures, humidity and precipitation in the Charlotte region are below.
