The climate of Kendal (England)
Kendal is a small town in the Lake District on the banks of the river Kent. The city is nicknamed Auld Grey Town because the houses are built with typical grey stones which are mined in the vicinity. The city has charming small streets paved with cobble stones. The city still breathes a lot of its old charm. The church was built in the 13th century when Kendal was a center for the wool industry. In Abbot Hall, which is a beautiful old manorial estate a museum can be found that shows several beautiful paintings and has an exhibition on the district. Opposite this museum the museum for natural history and archaeology can be found. A visit to both museums can be recommended if you would like to learn more about Kendal and its beautiful surroundings. Kendal has a sea climate which is strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream from the North Sea. This Gulf Stream is responsible for the supply of warm air which moderates temperatures during the winter. During the summer temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius on average. Temperatures never get too warm because of a constant blowing sea breeze. Kendal and the Lake District are among the wettest areas in England. About 2,000 millimeters of annual rain can be recorded here. Rainfall is evenly spread out over the year with a small peak during autumn. During heavy rainfall Kendal has a risk of flooding.
