*Note: These are based on average rainfall for the month. In summer months you are more likely to have heavy showers with lots of rainfall, but more dry days. In winter, you are more likely to have steady light rain, resulting in less rainfall, but more wet days.

It rarely snows in central London and if it does it is normally gone within a day or two.
