I agree. Climate here in southern England is pretty poor for those reasons, and Preston is going to be worse. But at least it's considerably better than some of the real climate horrors out there.

Too dull and mild, SE England is better.

I rated it a C. Its a very typical British climate. Mild winters, luke-warm summers, cloudy most of the time, plenty of rain, and a lack of extremes. I live in coastal North Wales and the climate of my town is almost identical to that of Preston.

British weather is not perfect, but there are places that are a lot worse. I lived in the US in central Florida for three years, and the summers there were unbearably hot and humid. I'd certainly take a summer's day in Britain over a summer's day in Florida.

It was actually quite cold around Bristol and Bath today in the breeze/wind when wearing a t-shirt and long sleeve shirt. Not good for midsummer. Preston being considerably cooler would be worse.

Nice summer temperatures; warm but not hot. I like the generous rainfall and the low sunlight of this climate as well.

It's not my preferred continental Dfb/Dfc but I wouldn't mind spending time in this type of climate particularly in summer. Especially this coming week since my city is experiencing a heat wave and unrelenting sunshine ::

At least not like other places in its latitude (Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia) with subfreezing winters. Still a horrible climate though.

I have to agree. The only thing that keeps it from an F are the cold but not bitterly cold winters.
