The winters are usually cold and winter, but don't get below double digits usually. The spring weather can change from day to day from summer temperatures to winter temperatures. The summer months are hot and humid. Floods are uncommon in town. Tornadoes, if there are any, are rarely widely devastating. Cozy sweaters and scarves are essential for winter along with a good pair of snow boots for cold days. You don't need a parka, just a heavier coat for the cold winds. Dress in layers because sometimes the weather gets better as the day goes on. During the summer the air conditioning is always on to combat the oppressive humidity.
