Virginia Beach weather is a major reason why so many people choose this place as a vacation destination. The humid subtropical climate makes possible travel throughout a good portion of the year, with plenty of time at the beaches. Generally, the winter season is mild with very little precipitation and the summer is hot and humid. Spring and summer are the wet seasons but the precipitation is fairly consistent throughout the year and comes mostly in the form of rain. The mean temperature annually is just a fraction below 60 degrees.
Winter: It is not at all uncommon for high temperatures to reach into the 60s in November and the 50s in February. December is the only month when average low temperatures dip into the 30s, but even during this month average high temperatures hover around the 52-degree mark. You will not have to worry about breaking out the parka, as there is an annual snowfall of less than three inches in Virginia Beach.
Spring: The temperatures climb drastically from March to May. The average high temperature in Virginia Beach jumps from the high 50s to the high 70s over the course of three months, when the tropical foliage is in full bloom. Rain showers tend to be a bit more common during the spring months but tend not to last long. Afternoon showers are often followed by clear (and humid) evenings.
Summer: The busiest time of the year for tourism in Virginia Beach is also the hottest and most humid time. June, July, and August are the hottest months, with high temperature peaking into the 90s and averaging in the mid-90s. July and August are the peak months for rain, but as with spring, many times the tropical showers are short lived and followed by sunshine and a marked increase in humidity. Summer is a busy time in Virginia Beach, but it is also the time when the most activities are available at the beach. Just a few of the favorite pastimes include boating, fishing, jet skiing, surfing, and snorkeling.
Autumn: Summer eases into autumn in Virginia Beach and the festivities continue on into Indian summer months. September is a hot month and it is not uncommon for temperatures to peak out in the 70s in late October. By the time November and December roll around, you may have a bit better chance of seeing a random snowflake, but this is not a common occurrence. For people who are not married to swimming in the ocean on their trip and also prefer a more tranquil vacation, the late autumn and winter months may be a good time to visit Virginia Beach.
