The Nice tourist office has a webcam pointing at the beach sea and horizon, that allows you to see what the weather's like in near real time, here:

If the people scurrying along the Promenade are carrying umbrellas, tells you all you need to know. At 4 pm this afternoon it looked very pleasant.

Also, sometimes you may be fooled on the webcam by some locals wearing jackets etc. Coming from Ireland (with its colder temperatures) I find myself wearing shorts and tshirt when locals are wearing jackets, jumpers etc.

Whilst that is true NI, what I am looking for is people walking under umbrellas - a dead giveaway that its raining - and sun or cloudy sky.

That said, the tourist office appear to have narrowed the view of the webcam recently to eliminate a lot of the sky, I guess to try to prevent a weather check, so I am not as enthusiastic as I was.

However we had some fun recently when I viewed the Prom through the webcam from the UK, while my wife was actually on the Prom - on camera, by the pergolas, and waving we chatted on the mobile. Definitely real time.

NiceLife, I used to watch the webcam every day but I do not like the changes to the website - the user interface was better on the old website. I am a computer scientist and am all for updating websites to give them a new lease of life but I certainly don't like the changes - if it's not broken don't fix it in my humble opinion. I always wanted to try that trick of standing in view of the camera whilst someone I knew watched but your good lady wife Mrs NL beat me to it.

for several years in a row i had such severe thermoregulation issues that i would be sitting on the beach in july/august wearing polartec fleeces and wrapped in a blanket -that must have looked very strange on webcam

hot and sunny today

we had only 2 or 3 minutes of heavy rain this evening in central Nice. heavy enough that people went to windows or balconies to look longingly at the rain -then it stopped and dired up . Clouds are thin again
