Highlands’ Climate

View Current Highlands, NC Weather
The Highlands Plateau is located in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. The Village is placed at an average elevation of 4,118 sea level, making it one of the highest altitude as well as the coolest during the summer months of all towns in the southern United States.

Highlands is one of the very rare locations at this latitude that has an average high of 78 in July and around 90 inches of rain annually. This rainfall and, counter intuitively, the abundant sunshine, create a lush and verdant microclimate which delights botanists, locals and visitors alike.
