Aloha - I live in Hawaii and grew up on the west coast. I have an opportunity to move to the Greensboro area,and was wondering about the winter months. How much snow and ice does the area get? Not much of that weather here in Hawaii. Mahalo!

According to the National Weather Service, expect a total of around 9" of snow during an average winter season.

The last time I remember us getting more than an inch or two of snow in one winter season was January of '01 or '02 when we got 18 inches plus in one day. That was very unusual for this area. We usually only get a couple inches.

You can expect 1-3 ice storms per Winter season usually. Sometimes more, but that doesn't happen often.

You can go to www.weather.com, type in Greensboro, NC, and when it comes up, click on "Averages and Records" below the city name. This is really helpful for getting an overview of the weather patterns in an area.

Default You can ask this guy ...

A feature in today's GSO newspaper about a Hawaii native who moved to GSO several years ago.

http://www.news-record.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060925/NEWSREC0101/609250302 (broken link)

I'm a native Floridian who grew up in relatively warm/mild winters - I don't think the winters in GSO are anything to be too concerned about. Like others said, we get more ice than snow during the winter, but very rarely does the winter weather keep you from enjoying most outdoor activities (with the exception of sunbathing or swimming outside ).

Mahalo for all the replies. Most everything I am researching about North Carolina has been positive. I am most anxious to visit in November to get a first hand look.

We usually have day time temperatures in the 50s (sometimes 40s) in November. It's not unheard of for temperatures to be anywhere from the 60s to 80s in November, but that's not what one would call "normal" for NC.

I hope you have an enjoyable trip.

I'm born and raised in hot humid Orlando Florida. My inlaws lived in Greensboro and we used to visit them for Christmas until they moved. It can get quite cold in Greensboro in December. Cold for me is in the teens - lower twenties. That's just about too cold for me to do a good run in. However, it could just as well get into the upper thirties - lower fourties during the day in December, and that is perfect weather for running! The real difference is that it never really warms up during the winter. What I mean by this is that in Florida it can get down into the upper twenties once in a while. But, if it does, it would likely get up to 50 that same day, and then maybe even to 60 the next day. Greensboro just goes from real cold to cold during the winter months. For me, it would take some getting used to.

The cold weather wouldn't bother me so much. I lived in Seattle for 12 years before moving here to Hawaii 2 years ago. In Seattle the temps in winter would get down to low 30's and we did get snow for a day or two. It's driving in the icy conditions that I hated.
From all the responses I received, the weather wouldn't be to hard to handle.
What about the community? Are the people there friendly and open to outsiders? I don't mean to offend anyone, but is it all good ol' boys with gunracks in trucks?
