Banner Elk Weather has four distinct seasons. Its known for its colorful springs when tremendous varieties of wildflowers and rhododendron are in bloom. Due to its high altitude, summers are cool and attract visitors from the sweltering lowlands. Come fall, the changing foliage paints the mountains with a rainbow of colors, and winter brings snow and cold temperatures for the South's finest ski resorts that offer both downhill and cross country skiing. Temperatures in the mountains of Banner Elk average ten degrees cooler than in cities like Asheville and Charlotte. The average high temperatures are in the seventies in the summer and in the thirties in the winter. The highest temperature ever recorded at the US Weather Service reporting station on Grandfather Mountain was 83 degrees in August, 1983, and the lowest was minus 32 degrees in January, 1985.
