Mayo Lake Weather & Climate

The North Central Heartland has a beautiful four-season climate. The single most influencing factor in temperature is the altitude, but the central portion of the state is protected from the cold winter winds thanks to the western mountain ranges. Extreme cold and snow is rare outside the high mountain regions. In summer, the warmest days are found in the interior rather than near the coast. Autumn is the season of most rapidly changing temperature. There is no distinct wet or dry season in North Carolina - precipitation is evenly distributed throughout the year, with thundershowers possible in spring and summer. Humidity levels are generally highest in winter and lowest in spring. North Carolina is outside the normal path of tornadoes in the United States, but tropical hurricanes do come close enough to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
