The climate of the Cotswolds (England)
The Cotswolds is a beautiful area and offers a lot of charm. This
English countryside is known from series and movies such as Midsummer
Murders. Little villages with picture postcard honey colored old
cottages can be found here. Small bridges over fast flowing brooks and
beautiful plants and flowers everywhere. The landscape is hilly and
very lovely. Quaint villages with names such as Chipping, Camden,
Broadway, Dursley and Winchcombe make this one of the most beautiful
parts of England. Many wealthy Londoners have a second home here to
escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The largest part of
the Cotswolds is low-lying area. The many streams and rivers may cause
some floods during spring and summer. Rain falls all year round.
However, a dull morning may change into a lovely and sunny afternoon.
Showers are usually short lived and temperatures are reasonably
constant. During the winter temperatures are 4.5 degrees Celsius on
average. Snow is uncommon. Summers are mild with temperatures of 20
degrees Celsius on average.
