Winters are typically mild. You may or may not need a heavy coat--each winter is a bit different. Temperatures can range from 30s to mid-50s. Not much snow; but we do get ice. Falls are gorgeous and long--usually in the 60s. Springs are typically very rainy and in the 70s. Summers are hot (90s) and very humid. You cope by keeping a set of clothes that you can typically wear all year long. Of course, the hottest months are the worst! Make sure you have air conditioning because the humidity mixed with the heat can/and does literally kill people every year.
