Virginia summer is hot and normally humid, influenced by the ocean breezes, while winter and early spring are often too cold.
It's also a very unpredictable weather, with moderate precipitation all year long, though snow is normally restricted to December and January and usually in the colder regions only.
Considering only the weather, then the best time to visit Virginia would be mid and late spring - May, June – or late-summer and autumn; or summer if you want to enjoy beach life in Virginia Beach or its surroundings.
