Gary Howe, Other/Just Looking in Salt Lake City, UT

I moved from LA California to SLC Utah. Now my job is taking me to Virginia. I've never been to Virginia.

Asked by Gary Howe, Salt Lake City, UT Fri Nov 9, 2007

What is the snow and humidity like compared to, let say, South Carolina or Boston ?(were I've been before). I will probably be in Lynchburg or Christiansburg area.

Elliston is in Montgomery County:

I live in Roanoke. Right inbetween Lynchburg and Christiansburg. I am biased, but I love the weather here. You get all four seasons. It can snow, but it usually goes away fast. The humidity is bad any where on the east coast in the summer. But not for a terribly long time. Spring and Fall are the best to me.

Welcome to Virginia,

Where you will be is nothing like Boston, thats for sure. Boston has some frigid temperatures and some serious snow fall. You may get a dusting here but I haven't used a snow brush or snow shovel since moving here from up north. I'd say it may be similar to SC depending on where exactly you were.

Hi Gary,

Roanoke is right between Christiansburg and Lynchburg, and I can tell you that we are a "four season" area. Summers average about 80 degrees, and winter averages about 40 degrees. We do have some snow in the winter, but it usually does not stay around for long.

The Christiansburg area is at a higher elevation so there is a bit more snow there in the winter, and it is a bit colder in the winter and also cooler in the summer than Roanoke / Lynchburg. It can get a little steamy around here in the summer, but maybe not quite as intense as some parts of South Carolina.

Here are a couple of helpful links:

I hope this helps.
