Being such a huge country, it’s no surprise the climate varies widely.
Unless you go skiing, high season is during the U.S. summer period which runs from June to August. The south experiences hot and humid temperatures, although the southwest can be quite dry. Further north, summers are pleasant with warm daytime temperatures and cooler mornings and evenings. Expect huge crowds and higher prices.
Low season, from November to March, bring mild winters to southern states, while in the north and the western mountains, conditions are quite cold with heavy snow and temperatures below zero. Prices are at its lowest during this period, apart from ski resorts and warmer destinations.
Spring (April – May) and autumn (October) are shoulder season, with milder temperatures and less crowds. The country is more vibrant thanks to spring flowers and autumn colours. Severe weather and tornadoes are more common during these months, particularly in the central part of the country. The occasional hurricane strikes on the east coast and Gulf of Mexico from June to October.
If you’re travelling to the USA, please enquire for the weather of your specific destination.
