What kind of clothes are required to be carried for a visit to Harrogate in the month of December?
Warm and waterproof.
From what I saw of the weather (from afar) over the weekend, gear suitable for a deep sea fishing trip would not have been out of place!
Trying to predict the weather can be difficult because of local on the day variations.
This information should be used as a guide only.
Here is the average weather for Great Britain for this time of year.
Enjoy your holiday.
SUN. Possible but not likely.
HUMIDITY. Usually follows the sun, and then:-
ELECTRICAL STORMS. Followed by:-
RAIN. We excel in rain.
PRECIPITATION. NO! it’s called bloody RAIN.
OVERCAST. Most defiantly.
COLD. O yes.
FROST. Comes just when you put in your bedding plants and kills them all off.
SNOW. You never know.
BLIZZARDS. Only when it snows.
SLEET. Rain with icy bits in it.
HAILSTONES. Anytime, anywhere.
FOG. Not always on the Tyne.
GALES. Strike just after the weather man says there is nothing to worry about.
FLOODING. Only if you are daft enough to live near a river.
RAINING CATS AND DOGS. No but we have had fish and frogs.
SPRING. Anytime between January and December, a good indication is when all the housewives do their “spring clean”
SUMMER. Anytime between January and December. Please send us a postcard when you think this will happen we have not a clue.
AUTUMN. Anytime between January and December. All the leaves have left the trees, sorry, I forgot, the acid rain did all that.
WINTER. Anytime between January and December. I think you are getting the idea.
Bring something to keep you warm and dry.
Much the same as for the rest of the UK in December.
Clothes you can layer for warmth: several thiner layers are much warmer than one thick one.
Warm waterproof or water-resistant outerwear. A thin waterprof is no good at all, unless you have a thicker jacket to wear underneath it.
Water-resistant shoes or boots. Don't rely on trainers/sneaker/sports shoes: they will be very uncomfortable if it is cold and damp (as it most probably will be).
Hat, scarf and gloves. Umbrella.
Ricky, that's the best, most accurate weather forecast for England I've ever seen. :-)
Entirely agree. :-))
The frightening thing is, it is fairly accurate :o)
