Toledo has a climate which varies considerably throughout the year.  In fact, the weather can sometimes change considerably from day to day, primarily affected by wind patterns in the area and the influence of nearby Lake Erie.  For the most part, summer temperatures are hot, winter temperatures are cold and spring and fall are relatively comfortable.

The hottest month of the year is usually August, when the average high temperature is in the high eighties.  The coldest month of the year is January, when the average high temperature is rarely over thirty five degrees and the average low temperature is often below twenty five degrees.  Temperatures increase rapidly at the beginning of the year, with the average high temperature in March being under fifty degrees, the average high temperature in April being sixty degrees and the average high temperature in May heading in to the mid seventies.  The opposite effect is seen in the fall with the average low temperature in September being sixty degrees, the average October low being below fifty and the average November low being near freezing.

It rains approximately the same amount during most of the year, averaging approximately two to three inches of rain each month.   In the winter, there is more often snow than rain.   June is usually the rainiest month of the year, sometimes averaging closer to four inches of rain.   Update information about the weather in Toledo is online at http://www.wunderground.com/US/OH/Tol... .
