Northern Ireland: Weather

  • St Johns Point lighthouse, County Down

The UK offers a temperate maritime climate, meaning it rarely experiences extremes in weather or temperatures.  The seas have a great influence on the weather and as such, there are cooler summers, but not very cold winters.  The western side of the UK is the wettest, due to the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.  Higher areas like Scotland, Wales and the Lake District also experience a great deal of rain.  

Spring in the UK generally runs from March to May and is usually cool with chances of rain.  Summer is from June to August and there can be patches of hot days, but places like northern England and Scotland tend to have the coolest summers.  Autumn is from September to November and can be a mixed bag when it comes to temperatures.  Finally, winter, from November to March is usually cool and windy.  Again, Scotland and northern England face colder temperatures than the rest of the UK.
