Providence Climate and Weather
Providence has a humid continental climate, its characteristic extremes between summer and winter however moderated by the Atlantic Ocean.

Winter runs from December to March with an average daily high temperature of 45°F (7°C) dropping to lows around 21°F (-6°C). In the summer there are occasional thunderstorms and a slight threat of hurricanes. Although it is fairly wet, annual average rainfall being 45 inches (1,140mm), this is spread evenly throughout the year so it does not interfere too seriously with holidaymakers' enjoyment of the island's hot summers. During winter there is also light rain, but mostly snowfall. Snowfall is the highest during January. The best time to visit Providence is during spring and summer (May to September).
