Ohio in general can be considered a year round destination, but certain regions during specific seasons will be much more comfortable than others.

            The state as a whole can be classified as having a temperate climate, which means that generally the summers are warm and the winters are cold. 

            In general, the southern region of the state where Cincinnati is located has the warmest temperatures and the longest crop growing season.  During the summer months, the high temperatures will reach into the upper 80’s and lower 90’s on average.  A good majority of the year’s rain is received from May to October, which makes the growing season so long (190 + days).

            Columbus (the state’s capital), which is located in the central region of the state has summer high temperatures that reach into the upper 80’s on average.  May through August is considered the rainy season in this area, but clouds are common throughout the year.

            Throughout the state, fall is the sunniest season of the year.  September in particular is quite nice, during which time the weather is mild and the changing leaf colors are beautiful. 

            The winter months around Lake Erie can be rather cold and produce large amounts of snow, but there are plenty of activities to keep the cold weather enthusiast busy.
