Weather in London
- Purchase the complete Expat Arrivals London Guide (PDF)
London has a temperate climate, with pleasantly mild daily highs in summer (although there is the odd hysteria-inducing heat wave) and winter lows that approach freezing but shyly recoil at the last minute. Rainfall is a constant, mostly in the form of drizzle, throughout the year. Snow falls occasionally in winter but seldom more than a few millimetres. In general, the weather and grey skies are the number one complaint expats make about living in London, with the cost of living a close second.
