No. Bognor Regis, Shanklin, Chichester and probably several other towns along the coast are sunnier.

Sussex seems to be the sunniest area, particularly East Sussex. The Channel Islands might be sunnier too, although that's obviously not England.

I'm not really sure if there seems to be a clear pattern of maritime lag. Portsmouth has a clearly colder Feb than Jan, but July and Aug are the same. London has Jan and Feb virtually the same, but a very slight decrease from July to Aug. Here has a warmer Aug than July (1.4C), but only a slightly warmer Feb than Jan (0.4C)

I'd say it's hard to get a clear sense of maritime influence/lag.
I don't really know if this is the case but maybe the European continent effects Britain? Seems each Oceanic climate ''acts'' different...Portsmouth may have a slight seasonal lag but its not really noticeable.

And? You are aware that not every climate is like Chicago?

25C/77F is considered very cool here in July and 88F/31C is considered warm, and 33/92F hot. It's just what I am accustomed to.




The whole point of rating climates is to give your thoughts and opinions on what climate you like and dislike.

Nobody cares about Chicago so stop coming into our threads and running our country down when you haven't got a second clue what you are talking about.

The funny thing is that your average high is only 6c warmer, pretty pathetic for being so far south.

Think you are exaggerating just a wee bit.

It is colder in Northern Ireland than Newfoundland in the summer.

So 18c is horrid is it?

Naw...

You americans seem to think us British/Irish are thickos and we couldn't cope with any type of extreme weather despite the fact that we do get snow regularly and intervals of -10c are not that uncommon with places reaching 30c at least every few years.

Care to read posts before you engage in personal attacks? How on earth did you get did you can't cope? Coping and thinking weather is horrid is not the same. Portsmouth does not get much cold. Unless a Portsmouth resident really likes cold, I'd assume they'd find Chicago winters horridly cold.

And 18°C?!

How is he exagerrating?

Not in the winter. The difference in temperature is huge between Portsmouth and Newfoundland.
