London Weather
 

World > Europe > United Kingdom > London


Climate:
 

London has a temperate marine climate  like much of the British Isles, so the city rarely sees extremely high or low temperatures. Summers are warm with average high temperatures of 21 C (70 F) - 24 C (75 F) and lows of 11 C (52 F) - 14 C (57 F). But temperatures can exceed 25 C (77 F) on many days, and in almost every year they exceed 30 C (86 F) on some days. The highest temperature ever recorded was 39 C (102 F) [83] on 10th August 2003. Winters in London are chilly, but rarely below freezing with daytime highs around 8 C (46 F) - 12 C (54 F), while spring has mild days and cool evenings. The lowest ever recorded temperature is −10 C (14.0 F). Autumn is usually mild but often unsettled as colder air from the north and warmer air from the south meet, occasionally deep depressions form like the Great Storm of 1987.

London is a relatively dry city with regular but generally light precipitation throughout the year, with average precipitation of 583.6 millimeters (22.98 in) every year. Snow is relatively uncommon, particularly because heat from the urban area can make London up to 5 C (9 F) warmer than the surrounding areas in winter. Some snowfall, however, is usually seen up to a few times a year. The snowfall of February 2009 was the heaviest London had seen for 18 years. London is in USDA Hardiness zone 9, and AHS Heat Zone.

 Europeans like to call English weather 'mild' but by Indian standards it gets pretty chilly in winters. Snow is common too, but what makes it unbearable are the stormy winds. Since England lies in a constant low-pressure area, it's besieged by wild winds almost through out the year, which during winter can be stressing. If visiting London in winters, layering is the best way to protect yourself from the cold, although a nice, thick coat works well too.
