London has a temperate oceanic climate, similar to much of southern
Britain. Despite its reputation as being a rainy city, London
interestingly receives less precipitation in a year than Rome or Bordeaux.
Winters are generally chilly to cold with frost usually occurring in the
suburbs on average twice a week from November to March. Snow usually occurs
about 4 or 5 times a year mostly from December to February. Snowfall during
March and April is rare but does occur every 2–3 years. Winter temperatures
seldom fall below −7 °C (19.4 °F) or rise above 8 °C (46.4 °F).
London's summer average is a comfortable 24 °C (75.2 °F). On average
there are 7 days a year above 30 °C (86.0 °F) and 2 days a year above 32 °C
(89.6 °F). Rain generally occurs on around 2 out of 10 summer days.
Temperature extremes range from -10C(14F) to 37.9C(100.22F).
