European Weather in General

"Moderation in all things" pretty much describes the weather of western Europe, due to the unimpeded flow of winds off the Atlantic Ocean. The lack of mountains along the coast of western Europe allows mild, moist air to sweep across the continent. You'd expect this to bring more rain than it does in most places.

Enjoy exploring the climate of Europe--and we hope it helps with your European travel planning.
