The climate of Gelsenkirchen (Germany)
Gelsenkirchen is a city located in the Ruhr Area and is mainly known for its soccer club Schalke 04. Gelsenkirchen is a real industrial city. The Ruhr Area is one of the most important industrial regions in Europe. In the past it was the most important coal mining town in Europe. Nowadays the main sources of income are electronics and machinery. Because of high pollution figures more attention has been paid to environmental issues over the past few years. Gelsenkirchen has a moderate maritime climate. During the winter there are several days with subzero temperatures. During the summer temperatures may rise to a pleasant 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). When there is an easterly wind temperatures usually rise. Precipitation figures are highest during spring and fall. The climate of Gelsenkirchen is strongly influenced by the warm Gulf Stream in the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. This causes small differences in temperatures.
