United Kingdom Climate

Due to its location on the edge of Europe the UK experiences a wide range of weather. The country is influenced by several air masses that create the unstable weather that the islands are most famous for. Temperatures often vary depending on where you are, with the weather quickly changing at a moment’s notice.

England tends to be warmer than the other parts of the UK and believe it or not is also sunnier. Strong winds and storms regularly come in off of the Atlantic and weather systems from the Arctic regions can hit in the winter, bringing snow to the Northern and Middle regions of the country. The South West very rarely gets snow, even at the height of winter.

Wales

Wales has warmer temperatures throughout the year than Scotland, and has milder winters than England.
