News and Weather

Parents and students who wish to keep track of news and weather for the Burlington area may find information via the links below, including the state's largest daily newspaper (The Burlington Free Press), an alternative, weekly publication on arts and culture (Seven Days) and local television stations and weather sources.

As for our weather: Yes, it can get cold in the winter. But we also are lucky to experience the beauty of all four seasons — the classic New England scenes of maple trees set ablaze with fall colors; the exquisite views of snowy mountains and frosty trees; the gentle, sloping hillsides blossoming with lupines in the spring; and the perfect summer sailing days on Lake Champlain that end with gorgeous sunsets over the Adirondack Mountains.

Now for the numbers: Burlington's average high temperature in August is 77 degrees Fahrenheit and in January, 27 degrees. The city gets an average of 92 inches of snow each year — and, yes, we like snow, because the more we have, the more we can get outside and ski, snowshoe and ice-skate.

The truth is, however, that the weather can change quickly and dramatically, so it's best to check the links below before packing your clothes for a visit to the university.
