If you are new to New England, the weather at Yale might be unnerving and unpleasant. New Haven weather ranges from temperatures in the 80s during the summer to the 10s in the winter. Do not use the seasons’ norms as a guide. It has been known to dip into the 30s in October or to snow in April. Perhaps the most dismal aspect of the weather in New Haven is that it is often gray and rainy, making it important to always have a coat and an umbrella or raincoat, especially during the spring and early fall. The beginning of fall semester can also be quite hot, and there is no air conditioning in most suites; however, autumn quickly arrives, leading to some of the most beautiful days on campus.
Winter in New Haven is very gray (New Haven is, after all, on the coast of the Atlantic!), but is not nearly as cold as other areas of the Northeast (including Hartford and Boston). Fortunately, spring is beautiful: trees blossom in every college courtyard and oceans of daffodils poke out by Phelps gate. The sun comes out, the flowers bloom, and in response, everyone comes out of hibernation. The annual "Spring Fling" music event is a celebration of both the warm weather and the closing of the term.
