A collaboration of coast and countryside organisations on The Lizard Peninsula

What’s the weather like?

Being surrounded by the sea the Lizard has what the scientists call a `mild oceanic climate`. This means less sharp differences between the seasons, and no extremes of temperature. The Lizard has the highest mean daily temperature in Britain of 11C, but the average for July and August is only 19C.

It is one of the sunniest places in Britain, and rainfall is not high by British standards. Dry springs are a characteristic of The Lizard weather. The climate and the geology have combined to give the Lizard its unique character.
