Lock Haven‘s weather can be considered a bit bipolar. One week the sun is your best friend, and the next it's nothing but rain and clouds. Snowfall starts around October and ends in mid-April. When it snows in Lock Haven, be sure to bundle up! Wintertime is no joke—so be ready to add on the layers. Overall, there aren’t any signs of tornado activity, earthquakes, or natural disasters, but be prepared for rainy days and cold winter nights. An umbrella, rain boots, a winter jacket, and warm clothing are must-haves when packing. Weather alerts are always emailed or sent in a text to students if class is canceled. Plus, students are always forewarned if a two-hour delay or cancelation is going to be in effect.
When the sun is out and shining, "the Haven" looks picture perfect. Everyone should get out of the dorms on nice days and take a stroll on the dyke, as the dyke is a serene place to take a walk and clear one's head.
