Temperatures and rainfall in West Virginia


The climate of West Virginia is characterized by warm humid summers and cold humid winters. However, the weather is subject to sudden changes at all seasons. The growing season ranges from less than 150 days along the northern border of the state to more than 190 days, principally in the south. Average January temperatures range from less than -2°C (28°F) near the Cheat River to more than 3°C (38°F) along sections of the border with Kentucky. July averages range from less than 20°C (68°F) along the North Branch of the Potomac to more than 24°C (76°F) in the western part of the state. It is cooler in the mountains than in the lowlands.

Annual precipitation ranges from less than 810 mm (32 in) in the eastern lowlands to more than 1,400 mm (56 in) in higher parts of the Allegheny Front. Slightly more than half the rainfall occurs from April to September. Dense fogs are common in many valleys of the Kanawha section, especially the Tygart Valley. Snow usually lasts only a few days in the lowlands but may persist for weeks in the higher mountain areas. An average of 86 cm (34 in) of snow falls annually in Charleston, although during the winter of 1995-1996 more than three times that amount fell as several cities in the state established new records for snowfall.
