The climate of Newfoundland (Canada)
Newfoundland is an island off the coast of Canada in the Atlantic Ocean. The island was first discovered by the Vikings. Several remains of their settlements can still be found on the island. Cordroy Valley is well worth visiting for bird spotters. In the wetlands of this valley thousands of birds live. You can go out in St Johnís George Street. This street has many bars and restaurants and is the place to be if you would like to party. Several National Parks can be found in Newfoundland. Gros Mourne National Park is very special geologically speaking. Scientists found evidence of the existence of tectonic plates here. In Terra Nova National Park you can go canoeing amidst whales and birds in sheltered bays. Newfoundland has a sea climate. Everywhere in Newfoundland you are at less than 100 kilometers from the sea. This means the sea has a strong influence on the climate. Temperatures are more moderate than in the interior, there is more precipitation and humidity figures are much higher. The wind also blows much stronger and storms are not uncommon all year round. During the winter cyclones can be a serious threat to fishing vessels at sea. Temperatures are between -5 and 15 degrees Celsius here.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
