One of the reasons most people go on holiday is to get good weather. If you go on holiday and get bad weather this can be very disappointing and spoil your holiday. Traveling to a destination that therefore has a high chance of good weather at the time you are going is therefore very important. When we say good weather we mean hot sunny days with little rain.
So how do you find a destination with good weather ? To do this you need to understand a few principles about how the weather works around the world. This article aims to set out a few of these principles that will help you to secure a holiday with good weather. The hottest weather can generally be found the nearer you go to the equator. The
further away you go either in a northerly or southerly direction from the equator the cooler the temperature will become.
The next thing to remember is that as a rule of thumb when it is winter in the northern hemisphere it is summer in the southern hemisphere, for example February in the UK is a winter month, as it is through out Europe but in Australia (the southern hemisphere) it is their summer.
The next variable that will have a big impact on the weather is the
altitude you are at and the higher you go then generally the cooler the temperature can become. Being near to a mountain range or the sea can have both positive and negative impacts on the weather you will experience even during a supposedly good period of weather.
With those principles established each region and country, and depending upon the size of the country, will have its own weather variations for example at some times of year those places located by the coast may be wetter than those inland or the other way round. There are no clear rules governing this although their are historic weather patterns that can be looked at to gauge what might have happened in the past and lots of sites to go to where you can look and see what the weather should be at that time of year.
The one thing that has happened and that has become more
pronounced in the last five years is that due to global warming nothing is really as it should be and that a past weather pattern is really only an indication as to what you should expect while you are there. If you are planning on traveling in Europe the summer months of May, June, July, Aug and early Sept are generally regarded as being the best
months to travel with the hottest climate being further south in Countries like Greece and Turkey.
The most important thing to do before you book a holiday is to do some research and establish that if all things being equal what should the weather be at the time you are planning on traveling. Their are many sites online that hold this information and will suggest the best times of year to travel to that country most good high street travel
agents will offer this advice as part of the booking process, using your researched information it should be possible to get a pretty good holiday from a weather point of view.
