Fairlea Weather & Climate

Southern West Virginia , near the Virginia border, has a mild, four-season climate. Within this region, the city of Bluefield prides itself on its hospitable climate. Since 1938 the Bluefield Chamber of Commerce has given free lemonade when the temperature has surpassed 90F. The city's motto is "nature's air conditioned city, where the summer spends the winter." Indeed, due to the high elevation, this region has a somewhat cooler and more moist climate than surrounding areas at lower altitudes. Summers are mild and humid with high temperatures ranging from the 60s to low 70s F. Summer low temperatures average 50-55 F, although temperatures below freezing have been recorded in every month of the year. Winters are typically cold and snowy. Nearly all snow falls from October through April. Severe storms, such as tornadoes, are rare in this region.
