March temperatures can reach as lows as 32°F, April 42°F and May 51°F. Regardless of the weather during the day, the evening hours can get quite cold.

-Summer starts in June and last until September. It's an uncomfortable muddle with temperatures reaching up to 90°F. Not only that, it gets sticky with intense humidity as well.
