Fall Weather By Region
Fall weather is rather a loose term. It can mean something different for someone living in southern California than for someone living in Connecticut. So if you have plans to travel this fall to enjoy some gorgeous fall weather, here is a fall weather guide (with average temperatures) by region to help you know what to plan for:
West Coast: temperatures range from 45-65 degrees F
East Coast: temperatures range from 25-70 degrees F
North: temperatures range from 25-45 degrees F
South: temperatures range from 65-70 degrees F
Midwest: temperatures range from 45-65 degrees F
How to Plan What to Wear
The most important thing to consider when dressing for a hike is the weather. Take time to research what the weather will be like for the day. Will it be warm and sunny? Cold and windy? Is there a chance of rain? Knowing what to expect will help you know what to wear and pack.
Layers, Layers, Layers!
Layers are key when dressing for a hike in the fall! The weather can change and the temperature can fluctuate quickly. It’s best to be prepared! Wearing and packing layers will help you stay warm and dry or cool and comfortable.
What do I mean by layers? You want to wear different layers of clothing that you can add or take off easily. Your base layer should be a short sleeve shirt, then a long sleeve shirt, a light sweater, and then a jacket. You can also add gloves, a beanie, and scarf. All of these items can easily be put on or taken off depending on how you feel.
