Weather and climate
- Britain has a variable climate that changes from day to day which means it is difficult to predict.
- Britain has an equable climate which means that extreme weather is rare.
- Britain has different seasons - spring, summer, autumn, winter.
Britain has different weather North, South, East and West as follows:
- NW - cool summers, mild winters, heavy rain
- NE - cool summers, cool winters, relatively dry all year
- SE - warm summers, cold winters, some rain all year especially summer
- SW - warm summers, mild winters, rain all year especially winter
The reason for Britain's weather being different North, South, East and West is because different air masses come from each direction as follows:
