What weather to expect in Normandy

Normandy is part of France. France is quite a large country, so the climate is diverse here. Most of the low-lying areas of France are in the oceanic climate zone, so you can generally expect cool winters and mild summers. But there are mild winters and hot summers along the Mediterranean. In most overseas regions of France you can expect a tropical climate.

When speaking about the usual weather in this area, the information is relevant for example for these popular places: Alençon, Argentan, Arromanches les Bains, Avranches, Bayeux, Caen, Cherbourg en Cotentin, Coutances, Deauville, Dieppe, Falaise, Giverny, Granville, Honfleur, Le Havre, Les Andelys, Lisieux, Lower Normandy, Mont Saint Michel, Ouistreham, Rouen, Saint Lô, Sainte Mère Église, Sallenelles, Trouville sur Mer, Upper Normandy, Vire, Étretat, Évreux.
