You are here:
Paris is not a coastal city, its climate is continental with a wide range of weather, and the four seasons are quite clearly defined, although in common with the rest of Europe, recent years have sometimes been a little unpredictable (global warming?!).
Springtime is as the song says a wonderful time to visit Paris, but it does tend to rain a quite often, so if you don't want to do a Gene Kelly take an umbrella or a raincoat! Also, for those of us used to a warmer clime, it can also be cold - the April average maxes out at under 15°C!
Summer in Paris is usually warm and dry with maximum temperatures averaging 22-24ºC (ignoring occasional heatwaves). However, it can get chilly in the evenings.
At least street vendors sell roasted chestnuts in Paris in winter, and the rich aroma wafting through the air to your nostrils is a surefire appetiser (holding them keeps your hands warm, too).
