Climate:

Like all mountainous states, the four seasons differ in intensity based on your location.

Pennsylvania summers are long, bringing hot and humid conditions to the southeast, while in the mountains (central, northeast and west) the days are generally cooler, but still on the humid side.

Fall is pleasant throughout the state, while winter brings snow and much colder temperatures.

January is the coldest month, with average high temps in the mid-20s. July is the warmest month, with average highs near 80 degrees.

Summer temps in the 90s are not uncommon in the southeast, and in the Pittsburgh area.

Annual precipitation averages near 43 inches in the southeast and western mountains, while lower amounts are common near the north-central border with New York State and along the western border with Ohio.
