Weather is always going to be unpredictable, and weather in Madison is no exception. Students refer to UW's climate as mild fall and spring mixed with intense summer and winter. While this variation in temperatures can be annoying at times, students try to take it in stride. Students advise new students or visiting ones to come prepared for the temperamental weather.
Since Madison is located in the Midwest, the weather tends to change very quickly and dramatically. Summers can reach temperatures nearing 100 degrees, and winters can chill into the negative numbers. Walking to and from campus puts students outside, exposed for long amounts of time. In the winter gloves, hats, scarves, and boots are essential for trudging through snowy walkways. Summertime calls for less apparel but lots of sunscreen. Those attending UW should pack for every weather condition.
