Oh, there are 4 true seasons in E KY. Boyd County has moderate winters (avg 20's at night, mid-40's day) beautiful green springs with Derby Day (first Sat in May) considered by most as a frost free day to trans-plant annual flowers and vegetables. Summers are typically 60's at night with highs in the 80's, while the fall is often more beautiful than New England with all the brilliant tree colors. We see some gray winter skys and sometimes the gloom seems to never end, but when March gets here, our early cool weather natural flowers start covering forest floors, and soon the redbuds, daffodils, & jonquils stand up and annouce it's Derby time and all Kentucky just seems to come alive. May and June are like Ireland, deep green grass, lush trees and landscapes and almost black corn. This is because the phrase April showers make May flowers is such a truism in KY. We enjoy this beauty through July 4th and sometimes beyond. July provides warm swimming holes to escape the three H's, Hot, Hazy, Humid, but that just says it's Kentucky State Fair time, and Boyd County always has some great entries. Typically, Boyd County is protected from the tornadoes that plague the flatlands of more western Kentucky, but it's not totally immune. Our rains generally come in winter drizzles with an occasional 4 to 8 even 20 inch snow that generally always melts before the next. We see some heavy spring showers of up to 5 inches in 24 hours, with summer thunderstorms putting down an inch or so in an hours time and rolling on. October is our dryest month and then there is Christmas which typically is not white, but still pretty with the green cedars that grow like mushrooms all over Kentucky.

I hope this helps.
