During late spring and summer, temperatures can be surprisingly high, and low humidity also makes it feel warmer. But be prepared for variable weather—winds, rain, and clouds are common occurrences. During early spring and autumn, the weather can quickly turn from warm, sunny, and mild to rainy and misty. Be prepared for intermittent spells of wet, cloudy weather. Autumn comes early in this region; summer typically ends in August, and peak fall foliage is in September. In October and November, come prepared for snow and cold.
