It's the third-coolest month of the year, one degree warmer than the mid-winter months of January and February. The mercury drops to 5°C during the night in December, a nighttime temperature comparable to March. In the afternoons, temperatures average 15°C, a comfortable temperature for a wide variety of outdoor activities.
