September is the beginning of the beautiful autumn season of Virginia, with bright sunshine and mild temperatures. The forests, countryside, and mountains attain bright shades of yellow, crimson, orange, and golden colors with the advance of the fall season. The hot and humid conditions transform into comfortable temperatures, which average between 48°F (8.9°C) to 83°F (28.3°C). The precipitation is to the tune of 3" (76mm) to 4" (102mm) statewide, and sunny days witness partly cloudy skies intermittently. September is the season of hurricanes and tropical storms in Virginia, especially in the south, that bring a significant part of the rainfall. The harvest season brings a smile to the locals as well as tourist population, with plenty of produce and food festivals. Apple orchards, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches witness the highest footfalls. Fall evenings are breezy, so wear a jacket while on a scenic fall drive through the colorful landscape. September is one of the best times for food lovers to visit Virginia.
