Things to Know Before Moving to Washington, DC

Weather in Washington, DC

The metropolitan area of D.C. falls into what is known as a humid subtropical climate—which sounds a little alarming, but in fact is the climate for the South, with warm summers and generally mild winters. However, that does not mean D.C. doesn’t have four seasons, or doesn’t get any snow; the average snowfall from 1981 to 2010 was 15.4 inches per year. And D.C. doesn’t get nearly as warm or as humid as other southern states during summer months—July is the warmest, with an average temperature of 79.8 F, and August is the most humid, averaging 70 percent humidity.
