Weather in Liverpool
Liverpool is known as the home of the Beatles, but it also has a rich history and a large number of world-class restaurants as well as pubs and other attractions. Winter in the city can be rather rough, so if you are not a fan of cold weather, the best bet is to plan a visit during the summer months when the temperatures are much more moderate. There are also a surprising number of lovely beaches to enjoy when the weather is agreeable.
Spring in Liverpool consists of March, April and May and is a wonderful time to visit the city. At this point, the city is emerging from a long and cold winter and is beginning to come alive again. Overall average daily temperatures range from 7°C (45°F) in March to 11°C (52°F) by May. A light jacket or sweater is still needed during this time of the year and visitors need to bring layers to protect against any cold spells. The average afternoon highs range from 9°C (48°F) in March to 11°C (52°F) in April and 14°C (57°F) in May. Overnight lows will climb from 5°C (41°F) in both May and April to 8°C (46°F) by May.
The sun also makes a return during this time of the year with the average amount of sunshine climbing from 6 hours per day in March to 9 hours by May. Rain is an almost constant threat throughout the period with rainfall amounts ranging from 64mm in March to just 37mm in May. However, the average number of days experiencing rain is high and anywhere from 10 to 18 days per month. As a result, visitors will need to consult an extended forecast before leaving home.
Local beaches are open year round and are accessible during the nice weather days. Water temperatures will steadily climb from 8°C (46°F) in March to 11°C (52°F) by May.
Summer is the most popular time of the year to visit the city due to the nice weather and numerous festivals taking place. However, if you do decide to visit during June, July or August, keep in mind that prices are likely to be higher and waits a little longer.
This is also the most popular time of the year to hit the beach. Water temperatures will range from 13°C (55°F) in June to a yearly high of 16°C (61°F) by August. Because of the warmer weather and up to 10 hours of sunlight, the most popular beaches can get crowded during the weekends.
Rain chances are still present during the summer with at least half of each month receiving measurable rainfall. Rainfall amounts will range from 61mm in June to 46mm in July and 50mm in August.
Both afternoon and early morning temperatures moderate during this time of the year. Average afternoon highs range from 16°C (61°F) in June to a yearly high of 19°C (66°F) in both July and August. Average overnight lows will range from 10°C (50°F) in the beginning of the season to 12°C (54°F) in August. July actually has the warmest overnight low with temperatures down to an average of 13°C (55°F).
Temperatures can turn cold quickly over September, October and November. However, this can still be a good time to visit as many of the summer crowds have gone home and prices for hotel rooms and flights begin to drop.
Visitors will want to bring clothes that can be layered in order to fight off the chill in the early part of the season. By the end of the season, however, visitors will need heavy jackets and sweaters in order to keep warm. The average overall temperature will range from 13°C (55°F) in September to just 7°C (45°F) by November. Average afternoon highs will fall from 17°C (63°F) at the beginning of the season to 9°C (48°F) by the end. Overnight temperatures will fall just as quickly from 10°C (50°F) in September to 9°C (48°F) in October and just 6°C (43°F) by November.
While a trip to the beach is still possible early in the season, temperatures quickly become too cold to really enjoy the sand and surf. Average water temperatures will fall from 15°C (59°F) to 13°C (55°F) by November. Additionally, there is not a lot of sunshine by the end of autumn with only 3 hours of sunshine per day.
Autumn also brings some of the wettest months of the year. October brings the highest average rainfall amounts with 73mm expected over a period of 10 days. September is the driest month of the season with 43mm and November is the third wettest month of the year with 63mm expected.
Winter is not for the faint of heart. It can be brutally cold and windy helping to make it feel much colder than it actually is. As a result, visitors need to be prepared for the chilly conditions by bringing heavy winter weather gear in order to ward off the cold.
Temperatures are the big story for this time of the year with an average daily temperature between 6°C (43°F) in December to 5°C (41°F) in January and 6°C (43°F) in February. Average overnight lows will range from 5°C (41°F) in December to 4°C (39°F) in both January and February. Average afternoon temperatures are not much warmer with conditions between 8°C (46°F) and 7°C (45°F).
While much of the precipitation expected is in the liquid form, it not out of the question to experience snow in the city over the winter season. Precipitation amounts will range from 70mm in December to 64mm in January and 53mm in February.
With such cold conditions and limited sunshine, this is not the time of the year to be visiting the beach. On average, the region will experience just 3 to 4 hours of sunshine per day. The average water temperatures for this time of the year are between 11°C (52°F) in December to 9°C (48°F) in both January and February.
Liverpool is a great place to visit and experience the history of England and how the city has helped influence music for generations to come. Just keep in mind that winter can be very cold, but still enjoyable with smaller crowds and cheaper accommodations. There is also plenty in the city for the entire family to see and enjoy.
