Very few areas in the Commonwealth boast the diverse climate as Southwest and Central Virginia. From the highest peaks of the Blue Ridge and Alleghany mountains, to the Piedmont which flattens to the east, the region experiences just about every type of weather known to man. The highest point the state is Mount Rogers (Grayson County) at 5,729 feet above sea level. The lowest point in Virginia is sea level where Virginia’s Tidewater meets the Atlantic Ocean in the east. The mean elevation of the state of Virginia is 950 feet above sea level, which is the approximate elevation of the Roanoke Valley.

The region has four blended seasons and averages 40-44 inches of rainfall per year and between 16-25 inches of snow for the mountain and valley regions, and around 4 inches for the Piedmont.
