Charleston West Virginia Climate & Weather

Charleston has a humid subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. Its elevation means its temperatures tend to be slightly warmer than the rest of West Virginia.

Winters are cool, with average temperatures dropping to 23°F (-5°C) in the depths of the season and regular snowfall in January and February (though it can occur any time between November and April).
