WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE IN ASHEVILLE?  Here you will find the historical weather with averages in temperature and rain.

The climate of Asheville is a humid subtropical climate resembling the rest of the southeastern U.S., but with noticeably cooler temperatures due to the higher altitude. The area’s summers in particular, though warm, are not as hot as summers in cities farther east in the state, as the July daily average temperature is 73.8 °F and there is an average of only 9.4 days with 90 °F+ highs annually. Moreover, warm nights where the low remains at or above 70 °F are even more uncommon than 90 °F temperatures. Winters are cool, with a January daily average of 37.1 °F. Snowfall is sporadic and usually light, with an average seasonal amount of 11.8 inches. Freezing rain often occurs, accompanied by more significant disruption. Precipitation is relatively well spread, though the summer months are noticeably wetter, and totals 45.7 inches annually.
