Virginia has a humid, subtropical climate (a humid continental climate in the mountains) with hot summers and relatively mild winters, though outbreaks of cold and snow/ice do occur. These are less common on the coast, and more common in the mountains and to the north. Thunderstorms are a common occurrence in the spring and summer, though don't turn severe as frequently as they do in the US South and Midwest. The coast is somewhat prone to tropical cyclones, which more frequently bring flooding rains than any storm surge or widespread wind destruction. Snowfall averages only a few inches on the coast, to a few feet or more in the mountains. Average snowfall is about 18 inches around Washington.
