The United Kingdom has a temperate climate, with plentiful rainfall all year round.

The temperature varies with the seasons but seldom drops below -10 �C (14.0 �F) or rises above 35 �C (95 �F).

Citation needed] The prevailing wind is from the southwest, bearing frequent spells of mild and wet weather from the Atlantic Ocean.

Eastern parts are most sheltered from this wind and are therefore the driest.

Atlantic currents, warmed by the Gulf Stream, bring mild winters, especially in the west, where winters are wet, especially over high ground.

Summers are warmest in the south east of England, being closest to the European mainland, and coolest in the north.

Snowfall can occur in winter and early spring, though it rarely settles to great depth away from high ground.
