Weather in the Blue Ridge Mountains

The Roanoke Valley is located far enough north to experience four distinct seasons and far enough south that the winters are mild. Because we are surrounded by mountains, all four seasons are spectacular.

WinterWinter 

Mild weather makes winter a great time to visit the Roanoke Valley. The average high temperature in December is 48 degrees, perfect for holiday shopping or a brisk walk through one of the Valley's downtowns.

With an average annual snowfall of only 21 inches, heavy snowfall accumulation is rare.

If you're fortunate enough to see it, the sight of the snow-covered Blue Ridge Mountains will stay with you forever.

SpringSpring

Spring arrives early in the Roanoke Valley. While northerners are still shoveling snow, groundskeepers are sprucing up our golf courses and hikers and bikers are out enjoying the clear, crisp mountain air.

By mid-March the forests feature colorful wildflowers. By mid-April the entire Valley is alive with flowering dogwoods, the state flower of Virginia.

SummerSummer

Average high temperatures in July and August reach the mid-80s, a welcome relief from many other sweltering places in the South.

For those dog days of summer, an escape to the mountains is a great idea. Be sure to drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen.

Better yet, cool off in the region's lakes, rivers and streams.

FallFall Color

The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of America's favorite drives and autumn is the perfect time to experience it. As the daylight hours diminish and the nights get cooler, the oak, maple, birch and other hardwood trees begin to paint the mountainside in vivid colors.

Peak foliage is usually in mid-October in the Roanoke Valley but may occur earlier at higher elevations in the mountains.
