Asheville - Recent Annual Temperatures, Rain & Snow

They begin with average maximum and minimum temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius. That's followed by how many really hot and cold days occurred each year. Then there's information on how much rain and snow actually landed during recent years, as well as how often Asheville had wet or snowy weather.
