Liverpool Weather December Averages, United Kingdom
What's the Weather Like in Liverpool in December
December can be a magical time of the year to visit Liverpool. As long as you don't mind the cold temperatures and occasional snow shower, the city is decorated for the holidays and can be as pretty as any other city in Europe. Because it is the holiday season, prices may a little bit more than during the rest of the winter season, but the extra cost can be worth it to see the city during this time of the year.
The cold temperatures will demand that visitors bring plenty of heavy winter gear in order to ward off the chill from both the air and the wind coming in off the nearby sea. The average daily temperature for this time of the year is just 6°C (43°F). Just like the previous month, there is not much of a difference between the overnight lows and the afternoon highs. Temperatures will drop to an average of 5°C (41°F) by the early morning hours and only climb to 8°C (46°F) by later in the day. There is also a 60 percent chance of a windy day, so chances are good that visitors will have to deal with a wind chill throughout the month.
Rain chances are also pretty high during this time of the year with an average of 70mm falling throughout the month. On average, 12 days will experience precipitation. As temperatures get colder as the month winds down, there is also a chance that some of the rain begins to change over to snow every now and then.
There is not a lot of sun during this time of the year with only 4 hours of sunshine expected each day. Temperatures are also much too cold to truly enjoy the local beaches with the average water temperature of 11°C (52°F). As air temperatures are also very cold, you may want to pick a different month if you are a big fan of the beach.
