Weather: I like the DC weather, cool in the fall, great in the spring, and not to cold in the winter.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The climate of D.C is a bit different than where I am from, so it can throw some people off. I think it is pretty warm there and that can make walking a bit of a pain.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The weather in D.C. is a fickle lady. In the fall, it is not uncommon for it to be hot and sticky one day, followed by a stale and breezy day. Starting in November, the weather gets gloomy, with the sun going out of sight for so long, it is almost tragic. When it snows, it is truly a beautiful sight, partly because it is light snow with little danger or ferocity. But yet, it is heavy enough to knock off a couple of school days a year, and students take advantage of Mother Nature's gift.

And there's no telling what spring will bring. Sometimes, people find the need to sport their winter clothes in April. Plus, it gets rainy and stormy. All in all, it is a wild nature ride. So prospective students, be warned: Prepare for hot as well as cold days, sometimes even in the same week.
