UNCW is known for its random rain showers and flooding conditions when the storm actually gets bad. They told me before my freshman year to invest in a raincoat, rainboots, and an umbrella - it was worth it! Otherwise, it's almost always warm here. I continued to comfortably go to the beach until mid-November, and even in December we had a week of warm weather. It rarely snows here, but we do get threatened with a hurricane at least once a year.
