weather2.jpgIn Cambridge, as in the UK, it is not easy to predict the weather. Cambridge is located in the East and is therefore much drier than many other parts of the UK, but it does get its fair share of rain. Summers can be lovely with 20-25 degrees (70-75 F) but as always unpredictable, which can make it difficult to plan outdoor activities. However, most British people are happy to have an umbrella handy, even at a picnic. Summer in the UK benefits from very long daylight hours - at the peak of summer you can have light until after 22:00. Autumn is mild. September can still be warm but cooler and the days start to get shorter and darker. Spring is generally wet, but there will be spells of sunshine, while evenings and early mornings will still be cool with slight frost until May. Winter is cold and windy, but Cambridge gets very little snow, at most a week of light to medium snow. The key to all the seasons is to have a few extra layers that you can adopt when needed and do get a set of waterproofs for cycling.
