London weather from January to February

In London, the weather is strongly influenced by the ocean so it is very easy to come across cloudy, wet and particularly rainy days

London is located further south than other cities, so it is more protected and this area is called the London Basin. In practice, the temperature in this area is slightly higher than in other surrounding areas.

From January to February the weather is quite cold but not freezing, which means that the temperature never drops below zero. The maximum is 5 degrees above zero. But due to the northern currents of polar origin, snowfall or frost may occur for a few days. Of course, the frosts are not intense and the severe and persistent cold can last for a maximum of 7 or 8 days per month

The sun will very rarely be seen during this period and the days are rather short. At 4pm in January it is already dark, while in February the sun sets around 5pm.

Rainfall is fairly frequent but not moderate, often light or intermittent.

The weather changes constantly, but February is generally the coldest month of the winter season.
