Temperatures can vary depending on your exact location and elevation within Cherokee County. Mornings are chilly in the spring and quite comfortable during the day. However, it has been known to snow at the end of April! Summer daytime temps vary and can be warm and slightly humid while nights are quite comfortable. We often experience afternoon thundershowers. In autumn, you feel the temperatures take a dip and you can see its effects with the brilliant colors of fall leaves on the mountainsides. Winter is traditionally cool (or cold depending on your inclination). Snow is common in the higher elevations beginning mid-November. Snow falls are commonly 2-3 inches and last long enough to enjoy but not too long to become cumbersome. If Florida is too hot and Michigan is too cold, you will find Murphy just right.
