France: Climate & Weather


France has a temperate climate, influenced by marine inputs on the west coast, more continental in the center and east, and south Mediterranean and of course on the Mediterranean coast.

The seasons are usually very marked, with cold winters, warm summers and dry-seasons and neat and punctuated by rain events. The rugged terrain of the area adds to the general climate of local variations: cold winters in the mountains, spring and autumn and warmer on the sunny Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts, precipitation anarchic on the tip of Brittany, sometimes scorching summers in Alsace, for example.

Depending on the region you choose different seasons to visit France, but knowing that winter is probably the least favorable period, unless you want to practice winter sports: the Alps and the Pyrenees know a good snow often early in the month of December, which lasts until March or April, and allows attendance pleasant ski holiday to the winter break. Stations of the Massif Central and Jura they can offer a nice alternative if the snowfall is significant. In spring and autumn, the edges of the Mediterranean enjoy mild temperatures and sunshine better than the rest of the country in September and October are ideal months to discover Corsica example. For the rest of the country, summer brings the guarantee to meet the weather in most areas crossed, but a crowd of tourists on the roads and sites for tourists, especially on beaches.
