In spring (March - May) although it may be a little windy and rainy, the weather is mostly pleasant and mild. Tourists begin coming into the area to visit the parks and gardens as they begin to flower.

In Summer (May - September), the days progress from cooler mornings to much warmer days. Dress in layers to stay comfortable throughout the day.

Snow is rare in the wintertime (December - February), but cold, damp, frost and ice are not. The sun will come out some of the time, but you'd do well to bring warm coats, gloves, hats and grippy, waterproof shoes to wear when you're out and about.
