The climate of Birmingham (England)
Birmingham is a city located in the Midlands and is one of the most industrial cities in England. During the 19th century Birmingham became the center of the metal industry. Because there are many factories that offer low skilled jobs many migrants from former crown colonies migrated to Birmingham. Birmingham is one of the most multi cultural cities in England. About 29% of the residents is of foreign extraction. One of the largest attractions in Birmingham is China Town. Small shops sell all kinds of Chinese goods and the Chinese food is excellent. The industrial past of the city plays a large role. In the technical museum the first steam engines made by James Watt can still de admired.
Birmingham has a sea climate. During the summer temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius; during the winter around 4.5o degrees Celsius. Extreme weather conditions are uncommon. However, Birmingham got hit by several tornados, the latest was in 2005. During the summer more heat waves are recorded over the past few years. Because of the density in building and the crowded city it feels even warmer than thermometers show.
