Aberdeen Climate and Weather
Aberdeen is one of the coldest cities in the UK, though it is mild in comparison to much of northern Europe. Winters feature average temperatures around 23°F (-5°C), while the days are very short, with December seeing the sun for only six hours per day. Summers are much more hospitable, with long days (up to 18 hours of daylight) and mild temperatures ranging between 50°F (10°C) and 64°F (18°C). Precipitation stays fairly steady throughout the year, although October and November receive a little more rain than other months. The best time to visit Aberdeen is during the summer months (June to mid-September), although visitors should be prepared for sudden showers.
