Connecticut Climate & Weather

Connecticut Climate and Weather

The Connecticut climate is moderate with relatively mild winters (December to February) and warm summers (June to August). Along the coast the summers are cooler and winters warmer, and the northwestern highlands have longer, colder winters than the rest of the state, with heavy snowfall. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, but summers are prone to thunderstorms. Coastal storms, or 'northeasters', are the most serious weather risk in the state, bringing strong wind and heavy rain, and snowstorms in winter. Spring has the lowest humidity and is a pleasant time to travel to Connecticut.
