WeatherFor the most part, Edinburgh has a cool, sometimes gray and overcast climate that reaches its highest temperatures in July and August, when temperatures can reach 70 F/20 C. The saying that Edinburgh can experience four seasons in one day is not far off, as temperatures and levels of sun or rain can vary greatly in short spans of time. May-September is a good time to visit, as the days are longer with plenty of sunshine. In January and February, the temperature can get as high as 43 F/6 C, but it usually hovers around the 34 F/1 C mark. Edinburgh rarely gets much snow, except for the hillier parts toward the Pentland Hills in the south of the city.
