St. Andrews and the entire Kingdom of Fife have a temperate climate, which means that distinct seasons are felt throughout the year.  Although travel is possible during any of the seasons, most tourists plan trips during the warmer months of summer and spring. 

            The warmest months of the year in St. Andrews are July and August, during which time the average high temperatures will hover in the mid 70’s.  But during the hot days, temperatures in the 80’s are not uncommon.  The coolest months of the year are January and February, during which time the daytime temperatures will generally reach the 40’s.  But the night time temperatures during these months can frequently drop into the freezing range.  To convert any of these temperatures from imperial to metric units, visit the Unit Conversion page.   

            Although the total accumulation of rain is not extremely high in St. Andrews, cloudy weather and light showers are common.  On average, throughout the entire year, at least some precipitation will fall from the sky almost every other day.   The rainiest months of the year are August and November, and the driest months of the year are March and April.
