Summer climate in Wales

[Barafundle Bay]

Like the rest of the UK, Wales has a temperate climate. It is therefore wise to pack an umbrella or a raincoat, no matter what time of year, as the weather can be changeable. Mind you, the advantage of the rain is our country is a largely lush and green!

During the summer months we have days of glorious sunshine, with temperatures up to 70˚f/21˚c and sometimes beyond.

We enjoy longer days too. During mid summer, it gets light from around 5 am (05:00) and stays light until almost 10 pm (22:00).
