The climate of Norfolk (Virginia - United States of America)
Norfolk is a port located on the east coast of the state of Virginia. A large naval base is located here, Norfolk has always been an important economic center on the coast. During early history colonists used this region as a starting point to discover the interior. Norfolk was an important trading center and as a naval base it played an important role during the Civil War. Norfolk still has a maritime character. Besides the naval base, it is a big port and marina. A big maritime museum is situated in Norfolk. Here you can learn all about shipping and life at sea. When you walk through the city you can experience the history of Norfolk. Buildings and architecture from all centuries can be admired here. Throughout the city center you can admire the first wooden skeleton houses as well as art deco buildings.

Norfolk has a warm maritime climate with mild winters in which subzero temperatures are uncommon. However, a small amount may fall during the coldest days of winter. From May temperatures start to rise. During the summer average temperatures are 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). Because of the presence of the ocean precipitation figures may be high all year round. Precipitation is quite evenly spread out over the year with a peak in July and August.
