Located in the humid subtropical climate, Washington benefits from four distinct seasons. Spring and autumn are pleasantly cool, with winter bringing an annual average snowfall of 37 cm and occasional blizzards. Summers are hot and humid, often resulting in thunderstorms and the effect can be felt more in the city with the buildings of concrete and steel. Consequently, spring and autumn are the best times to visit, when days are cool but bright and enable you to make the most of this very walkable city.
