VA Beach weather; all depends on the season.

But, sometimes the weather doesn't stay true to the season! At times Virginia Beach can have spells of warm weather in the winter. The Christmas of 2015 was a little over 75 degrees! It was warm and muggy. Definitely not a white Christmas that year. A couple years before that, there was snow in the spring month of April! 

Weather in Virginia Beach has the potential to be unpredictable. It leaves us small surprises at times, but that's part of the beauty of this beach city! While it can throw us off, it usually remains true to its season.

In the spring:

The spring in VB is usually chilly, with chances of warm to hot weather. Those hot days in spring are part of the surprise weather. The water is not warm enough for swimming in the spring, but it warms up in no time! We would recommend a wet suit if wanting to swim in the spring! Or, here is a chance to explore what the Polar Plunge feels like...

In the summer:

The weather in VA Beach is warm, sometimes humid, and mainly sunny. There are chances for thunderstorms in the summer, but mainly in the afternoon to evenings. At the times of thunderstorms in VA Beach, it is best not to be at the Oceanfront. It's best to be indoors enjoying some food or live music. Virginia Beach always has something to offer besides just the Oceanfront or Boardwalk. 

In the fall:

The weather turns cooler. The cold weather begins in mid to late November. We love fall for many reasons in Hampton Roads. One reason why we love fall so much is because the temperatures start to cool off, but the water is still warm enough to swim! Water temperatures start to cool to uncomfortable swimming temps in mid October. 

In the winter:

Obviously the coolest temps of the year. Winter gives us chilly weather and cold water. But, just because we can't swim in cold water doesn't mean no one likes it! Whales love cold water in VA Beach. That's why winter is perfect for whale watching

Weather in Virginia Beach ultimately stays true to the season with warm summers, crisp falls, chilly winters, and to-be-warm springs. No matter the weather, there is always something fun and exciting to do in our beautiful beach city!
