Weather in Paris


The weather in Paris and the surrounding Île de France region is a result of a temperate climate, which translates into cold, but not freezing, winters and warm, pleasant summers. 
Though the capital claims France's lowest rate of annual rainfall, showers are nonetheless a consistent feature of life in the City of Light and expats will quickly learn not to leave home without an umbrella. That said, thunderstorms tend to be short and sweet, and the sun usually pushes the clouds away in no time. 
July is the hottest month in Paris, and January the coldest; summer temperatures average around 20°C (68°F), whereas winter temperatures average around 5°C (41°F).
