Back To Vermont's Climate

It has been a few weeks but here is some more on Vermont's climate.

Temperatures vary across Vermont according to elevation.

Vermont has a temperature extreme record that spans 155°F. The coldest temperature on record is -50°F at Bloomfield (elevation 915 feet). It was achieved on December 30, 1933.

The hottest temperature ever measured in Vermont was 105°F at Vernon (elevation 310 feet) back on July 4, 1911.

Summer temperatures are pretty uniform across the state of Vermont. Summer highs average 75-85 during the warmest days with lows in the 50s to lower 60s. However, some 90 degree days can be expected, especially in southern Vermont.

Winter temperatures can be all over the map in Vermont. Largely due to the terrain. Many locations experience sub-zero days on a regular basis.

Two of the coldest months of the year are January and February. In Burlington, the average high is about 27-29 and the average lows are around 10 degrees during both months.

July is the warmest month on average in Burlington, followed by August.
