3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is great the majority of the year. Summers are very hot and humid but the extreme heat only lasts for about a month. You get used to the heat quickly.

3 College Junior

Weather: New Orleans weather is unpredictable. You may need an umbrella on the same day you wear shorts and a t-shirt, but that is not reflective of the school itself obviously. Just something that comes with living here.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Possible risk of evacuation for a hurricane or tropical storm, but it hasn't happened yet.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: New Orleans has great weather allowing for me to be able to ride my bike and walk to many places and be comfortable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The weather in New Orleans is always changing. From July through September is hurricane season, when hurricanes are more likely to pop up. From the end of November through February is the so-called "winter time" down in the South. Sometimes it's warm enough for people to mow their lawns in shorts and T-shirts. Don't be foolish, though. New Orleans can get pretty chilly. It usually does not snow, but there have been some years that it has. 

The weather here is on its best behavior in the Spring because it's warm enough to wear summer dresses but cool enough to avoid returning home drenched in sweat. If you stay for a summer semester, be prepared for it to get pretty hot, especially with the high humidity. As long as you keep up with the weather, there should be no worries. Rainboots are a good item to have, but you do not have to have them..
