The climate of Falkland Islands (United Kingdom)
The Falkland Islands are located in the south Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Argentina. The Falkland Islands consist of two large islands, East Falkland and West Falkland and are separated by Falkland Sound. The archipelago furthermore consists of many smaller islands of which only a few are inhabited. The Falkland Islands have a total population of about 3,000, most of which live in the capital Stanley on East Falkland. At the beginning of the 1980s Argentina invaded the islands which resulted in a war with the United Kingdom. This war only lasted a month and caused about 1,000 deaths. Because of this war military personnel is still stationed on the islands. South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands are also under the administration of the Falkland Islands. The Falkland Islands have a cool maritime climate with precipitation evenly spread out over the year. However, in December and January precipitation figures are slightly higher. Most precipitation falls in the form of rain. Snow does fall, but only in rare cases. The Atlantic Ocean has a tempering effect on the climate causing extremes in weather to be uncommon. The average annual temperature is 5.5 degrees Celsius (41.9 degrees Fahrenheit). The highest temperature on record is 24 degrees Celsius (75.2 degrees Fahrenheit). The coldest temperature on record is -11 degrees Celsius (12.2 degrees Fahrenheit). The average humidity figure on the Falkland Islands is 82%.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they don’t give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month. The figures below are for the Falkland Islands. Please, note that local deviations may occur.
