The climate of Connecticut (United
States of America)
The state of Connecticut is located in the northeastern part of the
United States of America and is part of the New England region.
Connecticut is one of the smallest states of America. However,
Connecticut is the fourth most densely populated state of the 50
states. Connecticut is located in a region where a warm maritime
climate in the southerly coastal regions changes into a warm land
climate in the interior. Differences in temperatures can especially be
noticed during the winter when it is much colder in the interior than
along the coast. This is caused by the influence of the Atlantic Ocean
which tempers the extreme cold. However, when air is supplied from the
cold polar regions it also gets cold along the coast. During the
summer temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees
Fahrenheit) on average. Peaks in temperatures of 35-40 degrees Celsius
(95.0-104 degrees Fahrenheit) are not uncommon. However, on rainy days
temperatures hardly rise above 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees
Fahrenheit). Winters in Connecticut are fairly mild However, when cold
air from the polar regions is supplied it may get extremely cold.
During the winter precipitation mainly falls in the form of snow.
