Variation between the seasons is beautiful - Bright fall colors, snow in the winter, colorful springs, and bright summers.
Thunderstorms in the spring and summer can be strong but are not usually extremely dangerous, so it is enjoyable. Spring stays cool with gray skies, and is often wet. Sometimes, going back and forth between a winter jacket, and summer shorts.
Summers tend to come suddenly around June. Summer can become overwhelmingly hot and muggy at times, requiring air conditioning for reprieve - not simply for pleasure, but nearly a necessity. Allergies can be tough in early and late summer, depending on individual sensitivities. Pollens are usually high in the early summer, and ragweed is very strong in late summer to early fall.
The hottest months here are July and especially August.
September usually brings some weeks of pleasant weather. Moderate temperatures, lower humidity, and the days are still fairly long. By mid-October however, the autumn, begins to have weeks of rain and gray skies. Depending on the year, this can sustain or squelch the beauty of the leaves. Sometimes snow may begin in October, though it is often only a light dusting. The remainder of the fall season is usually crisp and cold, though not bitterly cold.
Winter is strongest December through March and though we do have some days of sun, it is sometimes a week or more between them which can be somewhat depressing. Snow can fall and create messy road conditions which are usually cleaned up fairly quickly. Occasionally (usually not more than once a winter) the snow will fall so intensely that roads will be bad for 2 days before being cleaned up. Temperatures hold between 40f and 10f usually, but there is often a wind chill factor.
Weather here is often affected by warm humid fronts from the south and cold dry Canadian fronts. In the Dayton area, it is commonly known that there tends to be more snowfall, and stronger springtime storms north of I-70, while south of I-70 will still receive inclement weather, but not in the same severity.
