Always Bring Your Umbrella to Class – Wilmington is a beautiful city and a wonderful place to live! We have beautiful weather here during spring, summer, and fall. July and August are the hottest months because of the level of humidity. Winters are typically mild and it hardly ever snows. Always be prepared for a surprise shower, but they never last long. We are in an area where hurricanes can be a concern. However, there hasn't been a serious threat since I have been here and the university has a very thorough plan if that ever needed to be implemented.
