Climate in North Wales
As North Wales is a particularly mountainous region and by the coast, the area has a maritime climate typified by wet, windy and mild weather. Throughout the winter, snowfall is common, which makes for stunning photo opportunities, especially around the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon.
In the summer months, daytime temperatures vary between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius. Many consider spring to be the best time to stay in a North Wales vacation rental, despite temperatures only varying between 9 and 15 degrees Celsius. The milder weather is actually perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking.
