The climate of Bellingham (Washington - United States of America)
Bellingham is a large city located on the west coast of the state of Washington in Whatcom County which is located on Bellingham Bay on the Atlantic Ocean. Off the coast the San Juan islands are located, in the interior the northern part of the Cascade Mountain Range is located. The city was named after Bellingham Bay which was named at the end of the 18th century. During the second part of the 19th century the first colonists settled here. The main source of income used to be coal mining. Nowadays these mines generate only a small percentage of the total income.

During the coldest days of the year precipitation falls in the form of sleet or snow. Summers are fairly cool and much drier.
