Although its latitude (48°52'0"N) is roughly the same as Vancouver or the Island of Newfoundland in Canada, Paris benefits from a temperate climate as a result of its location in Western Europe and the warming effects of the Gulf Stream. The average temperatures in Paris generally range between 5°C (41°F) during winter and 20°C (68°F) in summer. July is the hottest month of the year, and January is the coldest. As a rule, it is slightly warmer in Paris than in the suburbs. The effects of urbanization result in significant differences of temperature between the city's center and the outskirts, regularly recording one or two degrees higher.

Spring, from March to May, is the driest season. Rainfall is distributed fairly evenly throughout the other seasons. Paris is known for its frequent showers, which tend to pass just as quickly as they arrive. It is not unusual to witness bright sunshine one moment, then a quick shower followed by a return to sunshine — all within the course of a few minutes' time.
