Paris has a temperate climate which will be familiar to visitors from the UK and most of the north of Western Europe. Because there are no extremes of climate, the weather adds to the city’s charm, rather than detracting from it. Even rainy days can be beautiful in the city of light, especially at night when the lights reflect in the puddles.

February is a very cool time in Paris, when the city is in the midst of the winter season. During this month, the average temperature for the capital increases very slightly from 4°C up to 5.5°C.
