Weather Overview for Boulogne
Summer, from June till September, is warm with cool nights. The average high temperature gets to 17°C in June, 20°C in July, peaks at 21°C in August then drops back to 18°C in September. The peak months of July and August can see temperatures spiking into the high 20s, but it rarely becomes uncomfortably hot. The wind generally keeps the area very cool. Night times usually require a light extra layer, at around 15°C in the height of summer, or even a jacket in June and September when it can get close to 10°C. The sun comes out for around seven hours per day from June till August, dropping to five in September, and the water temperature gets up to around 17°C which is just warm enough for a very brief dip. Rainfall is moderate but the odd thunderstorm sometimes occurs in late summer if the temperature and humidity are allowed to build up.
Autumn, in October and November, quickly cools down to an average high of 15°C in October and 10°C in November. Night time lows turn from a 10°C average in October to a chilly 6°C average in November; by the end of November night time temperatures can slip towards freezing. Rainfall increases slightly and grey skies become the norm, forcing sunshine levels to drop. The ocean gets down to an uninviting 12°C.
Winter, from December till February, sees temperatures dropping to an average high of 6°C and an average low of 3°C. Frosts are common but snow rarely falls. The sea gets down to 7°C and the sun hides away. Rainfall lessens slightly but still falls regularly in a persistent drizzle. It is usually colder but drier than the English south coast.
Spring, from March till May, is mild; the average high temperature creeps to 9°C in March, 12°C in April and 15°C in May. Night time temperatures remain nippy, staying below 10°C, and the ocean does not warm up enough for swimming. While spring is still very cool, rainfall levels drop slightly and sunshine increases. In April six hours of sunshine can be expected per day on average and in May sunshine reaches the summer level of seven hours per day.
