West Virginia Overview

The state of West Virginia is located in the South of the United States and belongs to the South Atlantic States. West Virginia borders the states of Pennsylvania and Maryland to the northeast, Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest.

Four physiographic regions are distinguished on the territory of West Virginia, all of which belong to the Appalachian mountain system. In the northeast of the “Mountain State” is the Potomac Highlands, which is part of the province of Ridge and Valley (“Ridges and Valleys”) and is considered one of the most picturesque regions of the Central Appalachians. To the west from the northeast, from Pennsylvania, to the southwest, to Virginia, the Allegheny Mountains covered with mixed forests stretched. Further west, the mountains pass into the Allegheny Plateau – a hilly plateau, gradually descending to the Ohio River valley.

West Virginia has a humid climate with hot summers and cool winters, with weather conditions very dependent on elevation. In the southwest of the state (in the Ohio Valley) and in the east (beyond the Allegheny Mountains), the climate is hotter (subtropical), and in the mountainous regions it is colder (continental).
