Climate in Indiana

Indiana generally has cold winters and hot, humid summers with higher temperatures towards the south. Lake Michigan modifies the northern temperatures and also creates higher precipitation than in the rest of the state, with more snowfall in winter. Autumn is a pleasant time to travel to Indiana with lower humidity and sunny skies, while spring is often unstable and has high incidences of thunderstorms and tornadoes.

In the capital, Indianapolis, summers (June to August) see average temperatures ranging between 64°F (18°C) and 89°F (32°C), and the winters (December to February) are cold, with temperatures dipping down to 24°F (-4°C) in January, and occasionally getting as cold as -15°F (-26°C).

The best time to visit Indiana is summer and autumn, between June and October.
