The climate of Charlotte (North Carolina - United States of America)
Charlotte is located in the western part of North Carolina at the foot of Mount Holly in the vicinity of several large lakes such as Mountain Island Lake and Lake Whyle. Charlotte is the largest city in this state and one of the larger cities in the United States. Charlotte is an important financial center for the east coast of the United States. The city was founded in the 17th century by colonists and was named in honor of Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who had become queen consort of Great Britain the year before the city's founding. After the American revolution the city flourished when gold was found here. Many gold diggers came to Charlotte. Although no gold is found here nowadays most people make their living in the financial sector.
Charlotte has a warm maritime climate which is characterized by small differences in temperatures between summer and winter. Summers are warm and wet, winters are cool. Subzero temperatures can only be recorded a few days per year. Because of low temperatures and high precipitation figures snowfall is not uncommon in Charlotte. Precipitation is quite evenly spread out over the year.
