Temperatures and precipitation


Connecticut has long, hot summers and cold winters. The climate does not vary greatly from place to place, although the northwest corner generally experiences more severe winters.

The southwestern coastal area is generally slightly warmer than the rest of the state in summer, and the Taconics are the coldest area in winter. Average July temperatures range from 20° to 22°C (68° to 72°F), but actual daytime temperatures can rise into the lower 30°s C (lower 90°s F). Average January temperatures range from about -4°C (about 24°F) in the Taconics to about -1°C (about 30°F) in the southeast.

Precipitation


Precipitation (rainfall and snowfall) is evenly distributed throughout the year. Most places receive about 1,000 to 1,300 mm (about 40 to 50 in) a year. Severe droughts are uncommon. Thunderstorms and hailstorms are likely to occur in summer. In winter, snowfall is heavy, especially in the northwest. The growing season, which is the period between the last killing frost in the spring and the first killing frost in the fall, is about 150 days long in most of the state and about 190 days long in more protected sections along the coast.

Destructive frosts seldom occur later than the end of April along the coast or later than mid-May farther inland. Frosts usually occur again in the first week of October. © "United States" © Emmanuel Buchot and Encarta
