London has moderate summers and mild and damp winters. Having a raincoat or umbrella handy would be a wise choice. In July and August temperatures average around 20°C but can occasionally soar to 30°C or more. In spring and autumn, temperatures drop to between 11° and 15°C. In winter they hover just below 6°C; it very rarely freezes in London and snow is a very infrequent visitor. It may seem mild, but the dampness can often make it feel much colder. A vest, jumper and warm overcoat may be advisable in such conditions.
