Asked in Meteorology and Weather, Virginia, Climatology and Climate Changes

What is the climate and weather of Virginia?

User Avatar
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.

With the question asking the "meaning" of Appomattox, it most certainly refers to the US Civil War. It was the courthouse at Appomattox in Virginia where Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Army of Northern Virginia to US Grant, effectively , but not officially, ended the US Civil War.

What is the best catering in Loudoun County Virginia?

User Avatar is by far the best catering experience i have come across in the Northern Virginia area. is a premier, catering and food delivery service in Northern Virginia. They specialize in coordinating lunch and dinner delivery from the prime restaurants in the Loudoun County to your home, office or hotel. Im a Pharmaceutical Rep in the area and I ordered from Red Hot and Blue through and the service was absolutely amazing. The driver was very friendly and polite and arrived 10 minutes early just to make sure all of the food was set-up properly. If you value time and customer service then is the best option.

Asked in Snow and Ice, Virginia, Gardening

What is the average last frost date for zone 7?

User Avatar
The average frost date for zone 7 is approximately April 15th, with a variance of 15 days either way (~March 30 to April 30). Note that higher elevations may have an increased risk of frost late in the Spring despite the zone, and would fall on the later side of the average. There is no good way to guess the perfect date every year, but if you plant a garden and realize there may be frost, get your plastic and mulch ready.
