In Summer, it is normally hot (c32C) and dry, although summer storms can build up towards the end of August.

The Autumn is variable as the summer warmth remains, fading slowly, but rainfall increases; a week of brilliant sunshine can be followed by a week of heavy rain as the tail end of the depressions that hit the British Isles sweep across western France.

Winter can be cold (c5C) and crisp; snow is very rare, but there are often one or two frosts in this season.

The springtime is similarly variable, but the end of springtime normally includes some glorious sunny days (although the air can still be cool, c18C).
