Wilmington Climate & Weather

Wilmington Climate and Weather

Wilmington has a humid subtropical climate, with cool winters and hot, humid summers. Average winter temperatures range between 50°F (10°C) and 65°F (18°C), while summer temperatures average a balmy and sticky 80°F (27°C) to 90°F (32°C). Spring is warm and mild, with the many gardens of the Brandywine Valley bursting into bloom, and visitors should note that often rooftops and cars can be turned yellow due to the pollen dusting during the season. Due to the proximity of the warm Atlantic Ocean waters, Wilmington has been known to be hit by tropical cyclones during the summer months, from November to March, and travellers planning their trips should take this into account.
