2 College Junior

Weather: During the winter it can get very cold which isn't my favorite. However at the beginning of school and during the summers Gonzaga has beautiful weather.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Spokane has four seasons. Spring and Fall are both cool and wet, and summer is generally mild with about a week of temperatures reaching 100 degrees. Spokane has been known to have some large snow storms, but generally the snow comes and goes pretty quickly.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It reached -25 in the Winter and will reach 95 in the Summer. You get some of everything here.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It was snowing in the morning and blue skies and sunny by 4. Add in the fact that the whole entire time there was 20 mph winds.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I am from southern California so the weather is quite different from what I am used to. However, I enjoy the changing fo the seasons and love the snow, but the lack of sun during the winter definitely affects my mood and makes me less likely to leave my room to go to the gym or meet friends.

Throughout history, thinkers have reflected on how physical beauty lasts but an instant and fades away. Without a doubt, the weather in Spokane encourages such speculation. Throughout the year, there are wonderful, beautiful seasonal moments: blossoms doused in fresh spring light, warm summer sunsets, autumnal eruptions of color, and heavy winter snows. Winter snow quickly turns to slush, then ice, then muddy icy slush. Spring woos you with promise of temperate bliss, then bludgeons you with rain and hail. Summer becomes oppressively hot and dry. Autumn color lasts only an instant, as the brightly colored leaves are stripped and trodden into the muddy ground.

However, there are two constants: the wind and 30-degree drops in temperature at night. For instance, it's a 45-degree day in November. Not too bad, right? Wrong. First, there's a nasty wind that shreds through multiple layers of clothing. Second, the temperature will dip into the 20s once the sun goes down, at which point the wind will seem hell-bent on frostbiting exposed skin. Students must never underestimate the importance of gloves, scarves, and headwear. Likewise, a rain jacket is essential. There may not be a massive amount of precipitation in terms of total inches, but Spokane spreads it out over many days.
