Because of its central U.S. location, the weather in Kentucky is typically mild and moderate no matter what time of year you visit.
The weather in Kentucky cycles through all four distinct seasons, with warm summers and moderately cold winters. The daytime temperature during the summer averages 87 degrees. Conversely, the winter lows average around 23 degrees.
Spring and fall are arguably Kentucky’s most weather-popular seasons. In spring, Kentucky awakens with color and liveliness. The state’s legendary bluegrass fields glow brightly, and spring foals can be seen making their first runs in Kentucky’s Horse Country. Springtime Kentucky weather is also great for enjoying the state's many outdoor attractions, horse racing, bourbon tours and caving adventures.
During the fall, the weather in Kentucky brings about even more color. The first shades of yellow, red, and orange foliage can be spotted as early as mid to late September in some areas of the state, with a statewide peak somewhere around mid-October. Kentucky’s Appalachian Mountain region perhaps offer the best balance of scenery and color.
