Weather Conditions in North America
North America is a massive continent, spanning almost 9 time zones. From warm Caribbean Islands to snow-capped Rocky Mountains, Everglades to highly urbanised cities, it has so much to offer all through the year. Still, to decide the best time to visit North America, it’s important to know what kind of vacation you’re planning to have.
If you’re looking to spend days in a giant national park, consider travelling during the Spring months (April-May) or the during Autumn in October. The weather during this time is moderate, the animals are back from their hibernation, and the rates are slightly lower than during summer. This is also a great time to visit some of the beaches in the USA or attend a festival in the countryside.
A number of US public holidays fall during summer, such as 4th of July, so travel here only if you don’t mind large crowds. Summer is one of the best times to visit Alaska and parts of northern Canada as the weather is moderate. Summer can be very harsh in the southern part of the continent, so try not to plan trips to Mexico or the Grand Canyon in this season. Also, note that this is Hurricane season.
The winter months are a great time to visit the islands in the Caribbean and the state of Hawaii. The warm beautiful beaches and comfort food will make you not want to return home! Alternatively, one of the best things to do in North America during the winter is to travel to the Yukon territory in Canada to witness the northern lights or Aurora Borealis. The view makes up for the chill!
