Wales Weather, climate and geography
Weather & climate
Wales tends to be wetter than England, with slightly less sunshine. The coastal areas, however, can be very warm in summer, though onditions in upland areas can be changeable at all times of the year.
The summer months of June to August are the hottest, though are also the busiest as they coincide with the school holidays. Beaches are heaving with families, hotels are rammed and attractions are a frenzy of queues. For those able to travel outside of the holidays, May and September offer lovely warm days without the hectic crowds.
Similar to the rest of the UK, according to season. Waterproofing advised throughout the year, and warm clothes are required for upland areas.
