Lake Wylie Weather & Climate

The Heartland, near the city of Charlotte, has a moderate, four-season climate. The single most important factor in the state that influences weather is altitude. The Heartland, or central part of the state, is partially protected by the western mountain ranges from the cold air that moves southeastward across the central States. Extreme cold temperatures are rare outside the mountains. The warmest days are found in the interior rather than near the coast. Autumn is the driest season and the season of most rapidly changing temperature. There is no distinct wet or dry season in the state, although July is usually the wettest month. North Carolina is outside the principal tornado area of the U.S., but still averages two or three per year, mostly east of the Mountains in the spring. Tropical hurricanes come close enough to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
