Wales (United Kingdom) Weather And Best Time To Visit Wales (United Kingdom)
Wales makes for the peninsula portion of the Great Britain island, tapering the country into the Irish Sea and English Channel. The region of Wales is home to sweeping meadows and rolling hills and steep cliffs, with the sea crashing just below. The weather in Wales is highly humid, almost all year round. That makes the place colder in winter and milder in summers. With recurrent rainfall and fogs, Wales needs to be visited at the best time possible, weather wise. Here’s our suggestion.
Spring (March to May)
Wales is the quintessential ‘London weather’ place, where you cannot predict the weather of one day or another. In fact, you can't predict what’s going to happen the next hour. So it is slightly difficult to talk about what the next spring in Wales will be like. But suffice to say, that March brings enough warmth for the trees to start blooming again and some dull sunlight starts filtering through the clouds. Also, since April to June is relatively the drier time, it makes for some good holiday opportunity, and the temperature averages at around 17°C.
Summer (June to September)
Welsh summers are humid, rainy and warm. Kind of perfect for the breath-taking sceneries that the country has to offer. The southern coast heats up nicely to 24°C, while the northern coast is cooler with a range of 14-20°C. Rains are common everywhere, but the sunshine is just as bright, giving you one of the most beautiful nature paradoxes of sun and rain in one sky. The day sets by 10 pm so you have ample light to explore.
Autumn (October to November)
Autumns are cold and rainy, with the rainy taking frequent and intense precedence. Humidity is at its highest and you can never predict a shower even five minutes before its onslaught. September brings its warm comfort to October with a temperature of 18°C, but it doesn’t last long as harsh winds and shorter days all but render these months uncharitable. Flooding is common as rivers swell and snow starts to lash out by November in some areas.
Winter (December to February)
Because Wales is in the south of UK, winters are not as harsh. In fact, the temperatures don’t drop below 5-8°C usually. And while rains are frequent, snow may also fall during the peak season of December. This is definitely not the best time to visit Wales.
