The weather in Radford is extremely unpredictable. At the start of the day, it might be in the 60s, with a cloudless sky and light breeze; however, by 2 p.m., it can be freezing cold and windy with a possibility of snow. It is not uncommon to have several extremely hot days in the middle of November, where shorts and T-shirts are required, or freezing cold days well into the middle of April. One day, it might be a sunny day of 90 degrees without a single cloud in the sky. The next day, it is windy, cold, raining, and below freezing.

One consistent item in Radford's array of weather is rain. When it rains, it is usually for an extended period of time, which collects on the campus quads and pathways, so rain boots and umbrellas are highly recommended. Wind is also a common occurrence. A windproof and waterproof jacket is ideal, especially during the cold winter months. Students suggest bringing a wide variety of clothing since the weather can change by the hour. Layering is a student's best option, especially in the fall and spring when the weather is at its most variant.
