Climate

Enjoy Our Distinct, Mild Seasons

The climate in the Salisbury area is moderate. The massive mountains of Western North Carolina form a natural barrier against the cold east-west winds. While definitely “southern” in climate, Salisbury is far enough north and has sufficient altitude to escape the extreme humid summers endured by many other southern regions. Extremes in climate are rare and short-lived. In winter the high temperature averages about 50F with a low around 32F. The total snowfall is normally about six inches a year. Summer highs average about 87F with a low or 66F. All-in-all, the climate of Salisbury affords many pleasant days of enjoyable living.
