The Charleston area's mild year-round climate is reflected in the Lowcountry lifestyle, with oyster roasts in January and flower festivals in early April. Summer brings beach season and autumn means the fish are biting. Gardening is a year-round passion, with the annual growing season lasting 294 days.

Spring begins in early March, with azaleas, dogwoods and other bloomers virtually exploding onto the scene throughout the month. With summer comes higher heat and humidity, but temperatures rarely exceed 100° F and coastal breezes help cool the air.

Winter falls gradually around December and is generally over by mid-February. Mild winter temperatures average between 47° F and 52° F.
