Birmingham has a temperate maritime climate, like much of the British Isles, with average maximum temperatures in summer (July) being around 21.5 °C; and in winter (January) around 6.5 °C. Like most other large cities, Birmingham has a considerable urban heat island effect. During the coldest night recorded, the temperature fell to 20.8 °C at Birmingham Airport on the city's eastern edge, but just 12.9 °C at Edgbaston, near the city centre.
Birmingham weather is best during the period between spring and summer (March to July), as the temperatures can get quite chilly during the later months, and a number of attractions tend to be closed through the winters as well.
