What's the temperature like in Wales during April?

The temperature reaches around 10℃ during the daytime in April, falling away to 2℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.

Does it snow in Wales during April?

Does it rain in Wales during April?

April is typically the driest month in Wales. On average, there will be 6 rainy days during the month, amounting to 46.0mm in total. That's broadly comparable with the amount of rain we see in England during the summer months, and would be considered dry. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.

Is it windy in Wales during April?

You're unlikely to experience any strong winds. Expect a gentle breeze that increases to moderate at times during April. With cool air temperatures, any breeze will feel cold.
