Winter (December to March) is the coldest of the seasons. Located in the Southwest of the province, Oxford's winters are milder than in most parts of the province, yet still frequently experience temperatures below 0C. Despite the cold there are many ways to enjoy the winter weather. Bundle up in warm gear to enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowman making, or snowmobiling.
In Spring (March to June) the snow melts, the weather gets warmer, and the days get longer. The weather is mild and a bit rainy; “April showers bring May flowers.”
Summer (June to September) is the hottest season. You can enjoy the sunny weather in shorts and t-shirts. Summer temperatures often go above 20 degrees Celsius. Head to one of Southern Ontario’s beaches, only a 2-3 hour drive from our community, explore one of our many trails on bikes or in your hiking shoes, canoe on the Thames River, or go camping in the countryside. Summer offers endless possibilities, the warm weather defining Oxford’s role as the dairy capital. The long growing season and summer heat have made for ideal growing conditions in Oxford making our strong farming economy possible.
In the Fall or Autumn (September to December) the countryside becomes a warm palate of oranges, yellows and reds as the leaves change colour. The weather begins to get colder, and the days get shorter. Yet, there is plenty of daylight to put on a warm sweater and go apple picking at one of our many orchards, catch a hayride and see the animals with your family at a local farm, and play in the leaves before winter comes.
