Temperature due to drop to lows of 1 degrees this week!
English weather oscillates wildly but almost always remains within a moderate average. The temperature is continuously shifting. It’s never as clear cut as warm in the summer and cold in the winter in the South of England. In early November we reach low temperatures we find in January, but with highs that we’d find in May. In this country you have to be prepared for all kinds of weather. Don’t go out for the day without a coat in your bag, but always be prepared to have as little as a t-shirt on. We find particularly in Autumn, that it can be warm when the sun is out but very cold as soon as its gone.
