One of the top 10 cities of the United Kingdom, Cardiff is a significant commercial center and the largest city in Wales. This capital city is unique in its own way; on one hand, it is brimming with commercial property, infrastructure and high quality life, and on the other, it is full of green open spaces and is often referred to as ‘City of Parks’.
When you plan to visit or live in a Welsh capital city then the first thing you need to keep in mind is its weather. Checking the weather forecast in UK cities is a must, and Cardiff is no different. It has the typical unpredictable UK weather with variations in each season. However, thanks to the Bristol Channel, these changes are not as extreme as in London. Mentioned below is a brief on the four seasons in Cardiff.
The influence of the sea is strong on Cardiff weather. Summer is a bright, sunny time, when you can walk around wearing sun hats or enjoy a leisurely lunch outdoors. The temperatures rise high, bringing in 5 to 7 hours of sunlight each day.
One of the best times to visit the city, springtime in Cardiff is refreshing and festive. The temperature is not too hot, not too cold, but just right. The nights are mildly cool.
Autumn in this city is just an extension of spring. The weather is the same, but only with temperatures slowly dropping, as if welcoming the holiday season. This is also an ideal time for relaxation and sightseeing.
Winter is one of the most unpredictable times for weather in Cardiff. There is more possibility of rain and the air is very dry. It is advices that you carry sufficient warm clothes, and if lucky you might get to experience a nice, warm and sunny day in winter.
To enjoy the city thoroughly, it is advised that you keep up with the local weather forecasts.
