In Windsor-Essex County we are known for the great weather that we have!

We have 4 different seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall.

We have some of the longest warm seasons in Ontario. This helps with the growing seasons for the Agriculture industry.

You can expect different weather for each of the seasons.People skating on an ice rink

  • Winter lasts from December 21st until March 19th. It is the coldest time of the year with temperatures that generally stay below 0 degrees Celsius. With the colder temperatures comes snow and ice. During these months you will want to make sure that you dress warmly with winter boots, a winter coat, mittens, a scarf and a winter hat. The winter weather sometimes causes school bus cancellations and the snow means that you will have to shovel your driveway. 
  • Spring covers March 20th until June 20th. The weather starts to warm during the spring months and there is often a lot of rain. You will not need the winter clothing to keep you warm, but you may need to have some rain boots, an umbrella and a spring jacket.

  • Summer goes from June 21st until September 21st. These are usually the warmest times of the year. Temperatures range from 20 degrees Celsius to over 30 degrees Celsius. Many people use pools during these months and a lot of people have air conditioning on. It is important that you wear sunscreen during the day to protect your skin from the powerful sun. You will also want to make sure that you drink a lot of water and keep hydrated. The radio and television may share warnings about the heat and/or the smog.
  • Fall lasts from September 22nd until December 20th. During fall the weather starts to get cool again. The leaves on the trees change colours and will start falling from the trees. This season may be rainy, and sometimes will even have a bit of snow. You may need your umbrella and your warm winter clothing for different parts of the season.
