Weather Guide

Wales has one of the world’s most moderate climates, with few extremes. However, Welsh weather is also one of the most changeable in the world. The sky is ever changing and it is as difficult to second guess as Wales’s chances of winning their next rugby match. It can be raining in the morning and sunny in the afternoon – the weather can be quite different only a few miles away. Some say that Wales doesn’t have a climate – only weather! To help you we have put together this Welsh Weather Guide.

Check out our Swansea Bay Holiday Weather Guide including monthly averages for temperature, sunshine and rainfall (‘liquid sunshine’).
