The North Atlantic Current gives Paris the standard climate of Western Europe. The city has a mild climate with a moderate amount of rainfall. Rainfall throughout the year in Paris is steady, though not persistent. The city is known to have sudden downpours, so an umbrella is never a bad addition to your items.
The summers in Paris are pleasantly sunny and warm with averages of 15 to 25° C. Though temperatures have been seen to reach 40° C, this is only in extreme cases. The mild spring and autumn weather is quite unstable and travellers should be warned that you should be prepared for both hot and colder weather when visiting at this time, as the changing of seasons can be surprising.
The winters in Paris are darker and cold. The average winter temperatures are about 7° C and stay above freezing, though night-time frosts sometimes occur. It is rare that it would snow in Paris and when it does, it does not usually settle. The exception to this would be, as with the summer heat waves, a cold wave that can produce heavy amounts of snowfall.
We had a great time!
